The Child at the dentist’s
Pediatric Dentistry deals with specialist conservative treatment of young patients. It takes into account the variety in children’s behavior patterns and differences in tooth morphology, as well as in the structure of the masticatory organ.
Many Parents present a misbelief that deciduous teeth do not need treating because they will fall out in the end. However, there are many reasons for treating primary teeth!
Here are some of them:
- Caries in primary teeth affects permanent teeth.
- Bad state of primary dentition may contribute to development of malocclusion.
- Premature exfoliation of primary teeth impairs mastication and influences the development of facial bones and muscles in a negative way.
- Diseased primary teeth lead to discomfort in children.
- Unaesthetic smile, particularly in slightly older children, may affect their relationships with peers in a negative way.
