  • Oral and Dental Care and Nutrition Recommendations
  • Child Prosthetics
  • Tooth extraction
  • Protective and Preventive Practices Against Tooth Decay; Fluorid Gel, Fluorid Varnish, Fissure Sealer

In cases where permanent teeth are missing, it improves the aesthetic appearance and chewing by making dentures.

Makes dental treatment of children who need special care.

Why should I consult a pedodontist for my child's oral health?

Unlike adulthood, childhood period has features such as rapid metabolism and rapid growth and development. Similarly, the structure of deciduous teeth and newly erupting young permanent teeth is quite different from that of an adult tooth. For this reason, pedodontists are dentists with the most comprehensive knowledge of children's oral health.

When should my child's first dental examination be done?

It is recommended to have the first dental examination after the eruption of the first tooth (6 months-1 age). With early dental examination, correct oral hygiene training is given, nutrition regulation is made, and information is given about what should be considered to prevent caries. In this way, tooth decays are prevented while still in infancy. With regular dental checks at the interval determined by your pedodontist, the foundations of decay-free and healthy teeth are laid in the long term.
