Children’s dentistry – Pedodontics

Pedodontics is a department of dentistry that deals with the prevention and treatment of children’s teeth. Pedodontics is aimed at preventing the formation of problems in the oral cavity. It is very important for the child to be under the care of a dentist from an early age. All to protect against potential problems.

Often parents ask us when to start brushing their child’s teeth. Experts recommend that from birth, the parent after each feeding gently should put a clean finger moistened with boiled water to the baby’s mouth and massage the gums. The idea is for the child to get used to the fact that parents always do something in their mouths after eating. This will allow us to avoid nerves and crying after cutting the first tooth, when we try to force it to wash. We brush children’s teeth with a minimal amount of fluoride toothpaste adapted to the child’s age. We repeat this activity twice a day: in the morning after breakfast and in the evening after dinner. If your child eats any food or drink at night (except for water), you should also brush their teeth. Scientists conducted research on the manual ability of a child’s hand. It turned out that up to the age of 12 children do not yet have such manual skills that they were able to brush their teeth thoroughly. Therefore, we recommend that children brush the teeth as much as they can, and then the parent corrects the function after the child.

At Eskulap Clinic we offer a wide range of dental services dedicated to the milk and permanent teeth of all patients. Every visit of your child in our clinic is fun and is remembered as fun. The first visit is generally called adaptive. In particular, it involves the review, inspection of teeth and fluorination of milk teeth, which helps to prevent the development of caries.

Our children deserve beautiful healthy teeth.

What does dental treatment look like for children?

Adaptive visit

The child’s first visit to the dentist is important because its nature can appropriately guide the child for further treatment. The child must be interested in the visit and the best way to do this is to familiarize the child with the instruments and devices. Do you also want to ride the electrical armchair, play with the tubes? Unfortunately, only the youngest have our permission.

Filling in milk teeth

Contrary to popular belief, milk teeth should be treated in the same way as permanent teeth. To this end, multi-colored filling materials have been created especially for small patients. The child chooses the filling color, and after the procedure looks at new colored teeth on the computer screen. Colorful elements and fillings attract children to connect with a doctor and divert attention from the treatment process. A visit to the dentist is no longer so stressful and becomes interesting fun. After the visit, every small patient should receive a prize right?

Covering teeth with fluoride varnish

Covering with fluoride varnish is a preventive procedure aimed at strengthening tooth enamel and increasing its resistance to tooth decay. The more fluoride is built into the enamel structure, the more it is resistant to demineralization under the influence of acids produced by caries bacteria.

Sealing teeth – Lacquering

Lacquering involves the use of a special dense product with the addition of fluorine, which fills grooves and cavities on the surface of the teeth. It fills all gaps and strengthens the tooth. This filling prevents the accumulation of food debris that can promote bacterial growth and tooth decay. Lacquered teeth are inspected at the dentist’s office every 6 months.

How can I prevent tooth decay in my child?

The number one is always good hygiene. If we are not sure if we are brushing our child’s teeth correctly, we do not hesitate to ask for a doctor’s instruction. Remember not to lick the baby teat, teaspoon with which the child eats, not kiss the baby on the lips. In this way we will avoid transmission of bacteria from our mouth to the child.

How often should my child go to the dentist?

In addition, control visits to the dentist are very important. Due to the rapid course of the carious process in children (enamel is less mineralized and thinner in primary teeth), visits every 3 months are recommended. Also, every 3 months, we should perform fluoridation treatment. It involves rubbing a fluoride (present in various flavors, e.g. strawberry or bubble gum) into previously cleaned teeth. It is completely painless and lasts only a few minutes. After the procedure, you should not eat for two hours and drink for one hour. For this reason, we recommend that parents make appointments for fluoridation at the end of the day. The child can see the dentist after dinner, and fluoride will remain on the teeth until the morning.

Take care of your child more than yourself. It is an investment in the future.

Aesthetic dentistry

Doctors are able to change the position and shape of a tooth, even the gaps between the teeth, not to mention color.


In order to find out about the malocclusion of a given patient, the doctor carries out the necessary diagnostics using dental impressions and X-ray pictures.

Conservative treatment

After detailed cleaning of cavities and holes in the teeth, it is important to recreate the removed elements by using fillings.

    Permanent teeth and milk teeth in a child and an early visit to the dentist

    Around the age of six, molars, ‘sixes’ erupt as the first permanent teeth. Children have 20 milk teeth. If we count the child’s teeth and comes out 21, it is definitely a permanent tooth. Statistically, we also lose these teeth the earliest. Why? Because of their anatomy – deep cavities that are difficult to clean, location – the tooth at the end of the arch is also more difficult to wash than the one at the front, as well as the eruption period – often parents think that it is a milk tooth and underestimate tooth decay.

    As soon as the tooth crown is visible in our child’s mouth, we should make an appointment to see a dentist. The dentist will carry out tooth sealing. The procedure is completely painless, does not require the use of a drill. Sealing the cavities with crevice varnish (so-called “liquid seal”). This makes it easier to maintain proper hygiene and prevent tooth decay. We seal all permanent premolars and molars (fours, fives, sixes, sevens and eights).

    What if the child already has tooth decay?

    If caries is detected at an early stage (hence the recommendation of visits every 3 months), the treatment is quick, painless, there is a possibility of colored filling in milk teeth. In the case of deeper defects, of course, the treatment takes place under local anesthesia. If the nerve is damaged, depending on the individual case and cooperation, the doctor will propose tooth extraction. In permanent teeth with completed apical development, the doctor will perform endodontic (root canal) treatment.

    Why treat milk teeth?

    The first thing that should convince parents is that milk teeth also hurt! Let us not expose our children to suffering and treat their teeth in advance. In addition, inflammation at the tops of primary teeth damages the permanent tooth bud. Such tooth after eruption may have a changed shape, discoloration, defective enamel, be more susceptible to caries and fracture. Still unconvinced? We would like to inform you that after removing the milk tooth, the remaining teeth move to the place of the gap. As a result, there is no room for an erupting permanent tooth. This is how crowding and malocclusion arise that require orthodontic treatment.

    How to save a child’s permanent tooth after an injury !?

    In children, tooth injuries are relatively common – tooth fracture, breakage, insertion deep into the alveolus, loosening. If a permanent tooth falls out of the mouth completely, it must be found and secured. We shopuld place it in the child’s mouth under the lip with clenched teeth, in a jar with milk or saline. Don’t clean it with a tissue or any cleaning agents. We should also immediately call the dentist and arrange a visit as soon as possible – the visit should take place within 2 hours of the injury!
