Pedodontics (Pediatric Dentistry) is a department that aims to protect the milk and permanent teeth of 0-13 age group children in a healthy manner and to eliminate the problems caused by caries, trauma, hereditary and similar factors in these teeth. Pedodontics is a branch of dentistry that follows and treats the oral-dental health and maxillofacial development of children from infancy, and also includes preventive measures.
When the baby is a baby, the milk teeth first settle in the mouth, and when the time comes, the milk teeth fall out and leave their place to the permanent teeth. In order for this change to occur in a healthy way, milk teeth must be present in the mouth without caries until the time of fall. A pedodontist examination is recommended twice a year for the detection of any caries on our children’s teeth or for the examination of oral and dental health.
