Treatment of children

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.

When to see the dentist when my child has primary teeth?

The earlier we come to a dental check-up performed by a pediatric dentist, the better. During the development of primary dentition and during exfoliation, the specialist should be seen every 3-4 months. Systematic appointments, early diagnostics, and early commencement of treatment all make it possible to keep primary and permanent teeth healthy.

Modern methods and technologically advanced equipment enable us to provide the patient with treatment that is fully comfortable to the child.

Primary tooth treatment and malocclusion

Primary teeth play key role in the development or proper occlusion – they keep the place for erupting permanent teeth and they act as some kind of a guide, or a reference point.
Premature loss of a primary tooth (due to caries or trauma) may exert negative influence of the permanent successor. The permanent tooth may erupt too early or too late, which may cause orthodontic problems.
If the child loses some primary teeth prematurely, significant impairment in masticatory function may be observed, which, in turn, has negative influence on the development of facial bones and muscles. That is why the consequences of neglecting disorders within primary dentition may be really severe!


Prophylaxis and early treatment of caries in primary dentition is, therefore, of utmost importance, and that is why preventing the development of dental problems in children by prophylaxis and early caries treatment is the most important issue for the clinicians at St. Wojciech’s Dental Clinic.
