In this unit, children and their parents are also given oral hygiene and dental health effect of healthy eating habits for protective dental health. In the Department of pedodontics, also known as pediatric dentistry, preventive measures are more effective. Pedodontics deals with oral and dental health issues, including the protection of milk and permanent teeth of infants and children, as well as the follow - up and treatment of facial-jaw development. A specialist dentist who works in a pediatric dental clinic is called a Pedodontists. During this period, Pedodontists perform all kinds of preventive and therapeutic treatment and preventive practices according to the oral health requirements of infants, children and young patients.
The first step of oral and dental health begins in infancy. After the first baby teeth start to come out, they should be brushed regularly. The World Health Organization recommends that the first dental examination be performed around the age of 6 Months-1 year. In children, the formation of a healthy oral flora during the period of baby teeth is vital for both overall body development and the health of permanent teeth in the future. In our clinic, children are given preventive treatments such as Fissure cover, riding guidance, placeholder and oral care training by children's dentists. By treating rotten teeth, perplexities, painful conditions, speech disorders and psychological problems such as loss of confidence and other infectious diseases are prevented. Within the scope of pedodontics treatments, fillers, root canal treatment, amputation, stainless steel crowns, strip crowns, placeholders, child prosthesis, fluorine, fissure coverings are performed. For milk teeth, there are special fillings called compomers.
Children cannot pay as much attention to oral care as adults, and baby teeth have a more organic structure than normal teeth, so they are more prone to caries. It is very difficult to apply a technique for brushing teeth in preschool children. At this age, it is important to give the child the habit of brushing teeth. When children brush their teeth, they often brush the visible or easily accessible faces of their teeth. However, in order to prevent decays, the interfaces and chewing surfaces of the teeth must also be cleaned. For this reason, brushing should be under the help and control of parents until school age. Some of the treatments applied are as follows:
FISSURE SEALANT: The indentations and protrusions on the chewing surfaces of the molars are called Fissure. Fissure areas are the most easily bruised areas. With the application of fissure cover, these indentations and protrusions are covered with a liquid filler that protects the teeth from caries. In this way, nutrients are removed from this area more easily and bacteria are prevented from reaching here. Fissure sealants should be checked every six months. Fissure sealant is a protective application that does not hurt children at all, does not make them nervous. It helps children more safely adapt to dental treatment processes.
FLUORINE APPLICATIONS: Fluorine is a substance that strengthens teeth. Forms that can be rubbed on the teeth; they form calcium fluoride ions on the surfaces of the teeth, protecting the teeth from acid secretion caused by nutrients. This, in turn, helps the tooth become more resistant to caries. Fluorine application provides 6 months of protection. Before this application, there should be no caries lesions that have started and progressed on the teeth. For this reason, a doctor's examination is required before fluorine applications.
ORAL HYGIENE: Oral hygiene practices should also be started when your baby's first tooth is seen. For this, you should soak a clean gauze cloth lightly with warm water and wipe your teeth that come out after breastfeeding. In the following months, teeth can be cleaned without using toothpaste with a toothbrush. In children between 2.5 and 4 years of age, brushing without paste can be done. Between 4-6 years of age (against the risk of swallowing) without fluorescence, brushing can be done with fluorinated toothpastes if necessary from the age of 6.
