Paediatric dentistry, which doctors call paedodontics, is a speciality specialising in the treatment of children. Conservative treatment of the youngest patients is particularly important because it helps to prevent a variety of diseases in good time, to avoid costly treatment in the future and to teach the child to take good care of their teeth.
Dentists recommend that the first visit to the dentist should take place as soon as the child's first teeth appear. In our Clinic, each visit with a young patient takes place in a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere
A child's adaptation visit to the dentist:
Many young patients
only end up in the dentist's chair when the condition of their teeth requires dental intervention. This is the main reason for children's fear of dentists. This can be avoided with adaptation visits, the main aim of which is to build trust and a friendly atmosphere in the dental surgery.
Our dentists will take care of
warm atmosphere and introduce the child to dental instruments and the work of the surgery in a playful manner. During the adaptation visit, the child will see the dental surgery. The doctor will pass on knowledge in a light-hearted, playful manner and give as many factual answers as possible.

Treatments for the little ones:
This is a treatment that is designed to strengthen the child's enamel by providing the correct dose of fluoride. The dentist performs it in the office using a brush and a fluoride preparation.
For a period of time, the little patient feels that his or her teeth are covered with a film. During these few hours, there is an increase in fluoride in the saliva, which then builds into the enamel, strengthening it and making it resistant to acid attacks. You cannot eat or drink for two hours, and it is better not to brush your teeth that day. The fluoridation procedure should be carried out twice a year, and if the child's teeth are prone to decay, the frequency should be doubled.
Sealing involves coating the cavities and fissures of the tooth with a preparation called 'sealant'. This protects against the penetration of food residues and bacteria into the fissures. This prevents the formation of caries. The treatment should be carried out within a few months of the entire tooth surface erupting. If the tooth has already developed decay, the tooth is sealed with a cavity preparation and sealing.
A coloured filling is a filling developed specifically for children to increase engagement and reduce stress for the child during the procedure. The involvement of choosing coloured ones makes children eager to take care of their hygiene. The fillings provide an additional form of prophylaxis as they release a large amount of fluoride ions and zinc ions.
Extended frenums that are misplaced can cause serious problems. The frenectomy procedure is short and painless, performed under local anaesthetic. A diode laser is used to trim the hypertrophied frenulum, which makes the procedure bloodless and the child feels no discomfort.
