PEDODONTICS

PEDODONTICS

In pediodentia department, dentists work on protecting milk tooth and permanent tooth of children between 0-14, their progress in health, diseases because of decay or trauma. It is the dentistry branch which follows children’s oral and dental health, chin and face progress starting from the very begining of infancy. In this branch, the expert dentist is called pedodontist and he has special education on oral and dental health of children. The most important factor in pedodontic applications is the relationship between dentist and patient. Because children generally have apprehension about dentists. The dentist reduced the fear of children and makes them feel safe and allayment.

 

THE CONTENT OF PEDODONTIA

-the factors that affect the progress and calcification of infant’s milk tooth in the womb.

– factors that trigger the decays in babies after birth.

– remaining, progress and calcification of permanent teeth.

– treatment methods of milk and permanent teeth decays.

– the relations between oral and dental diseases and other diseases for children.

– treatment of teeth traumas

– protection of children’s oral and dental health.

– tooth traumas and thier treatments.

– applications for preventing problems result from early milk tooth loss.

 

 

PEDODONTIC APPLICATIONS

-FISSURE SEALANT APPLICATIONS

It is to cover the chewing layers of teeth with fissure sealant materials to prevent decays. As the microbes settle in these notched parts of teeth, decays and food accumulation are prevented by fissure sealant application.

 

-FLUORIDE APPLICATIONS

This is an application prevents decays and strenghtens the tooth form. It is applied to children inclined to decays. Floride is an element that strenghtens the tooth form. It also strenghtens tooth enamel and protect it against decays.

 

-SPACE MAINTAINERS

It is a method applied to protect the place of an early lost milk tooth. It is made of plastic or metal in a special way. It can be implemented fixed or removable instead of missing milk tooth.

 

-TOOTH CLEANING

If the bacterial plague that occured on child’s teeth can not be prevented by brushing, Dentists use tooth cleaning application. It is an application that used to provide protection against tartar caused by bacterial plague and decays.

BABY BOTTLE TOOTH DECAY AND REASONS

These are the decays occur on upper incisor teeth by smearing of milk teeth. Before sleeping at night, milk accumulates into mouth as a result of sucking milk from baby bottle and this brings about a convenient condition for decays. As the tooth layer is unresisting at this period, baby bottle decay progresses rapidly. Special attention must be paid to oral cleaning after night feeding. If the baby bottle decay is not treated, it may cause all teeth to decay in time. It causes pain and inflammation in time. It also affects the permanent teeth coming from below and causes deformations. Babies must start visiting the dentist when they are 12 month old and they must be taken to dentist for routine controls regularly even if they have no decays. Thus, the dentist phobia that may occur in the future can be prevented.
