Kid's dentistry, also known as paediatric dentistry, is the specialty of dentistry involving oral care for children from birth through adolescence.
This discipline focuses on growth and development, causes and prevention of disease, child psychology and management and all aspects of the highly-specialised paediatric restorative techniques and modalities.
At Smile360 we emphasise the establishment of trust and confidence of children with our dentists. This manifests itself in special office designs in our kid's zone, different communication styles and an emphasis on teaching preventative dental habits to children in an effort to make dental visits enjoyable. We place special importance in preventing tooth decay knowing that poor oral health care in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships. We give advice on how to make teeth strong, the importance of developing healthy eating habits and other ways to prevent disease from occurring.
It is recommended that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child's first birthday. It is important to establish a dental home for a child. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits and treat as simply as possible.
