Child patients need a personalized approach as well as parental collaboration. Since deciduous teeth are an integral part of the development of permanent teeth, regular dental visits are required. For the child it is necessary to gain a pleasant experience with the dental treatment and thus to establish a relationship with the dentist.
The team acquires self-confidence, good habits and fundamentals of oral hygiene. We recommend that parents do preventive screening in children at least three times a year.
*Due to limited capacity, we currently only accept children who have at least one of their parents registered as active patients. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Our recommendation to parents is to have young children appear to the dentist for control after the first tooth has grown. Through early and regular contact, the child has the best chance of developing positive relationships with the dentist and avoiding later dental fears. Ideally, about every 6 months, the child appears to be in routine control to promote dental health and teach correct dental hygiene habits. Our dentists will take care of your children with patience, sensitivity and a friendly human nature.
Unfortunately, the caries disease is also widespread among children. Numerous studies have proven that tooth decay is one of the most common diseases among children. Parents often share the opinion that sooner or later, baby teeth will fail and it is not such a big problem when children lose their deciduous teeth due to caries disease. This attitude is unfortunately wrong and from the dental point of view incomprehensible.
Milk teeth serve as a placeholder for the later fixed teeth in the tooth jaw, therefore it should be the highest priority to maintain a good oral hygiene even before the growth of the fixed teeth. Parents and children should be aware that healthy milk teeth are an important building block for optimal long-term dentition.
The best way to prevent and control tooth decay is to prevent it. After breaking through the gums with milk or permanent teeth, they should be thoroughly cleaned twice a day by the child or by a parent. In addition to a regular and thorough dental care should be paid by parents on the diet. Juices with a high sugar content and sweets which stick easily to the tooth surfaces should be avoided as far as possible, since these strongly influence the caries.
We recommend to undergo preventive check-ups for children at least 2 times per year. Do you have a appointment with a dentist and don’t have anybody to take care of your children? This is no longer a problem! At our clinic we have a furnished children’s corner where your kids can play.
