The first visit to Paedodontics
We recommend the first dental visit to be in the period comprehended between the first tooth eruption, taking place around the sixth month, and the first year of the child.
In case of a previous urgency (dental trauma caused by a downfall), attendance will begin at that time.
Is it important for the children to be treated by a Paedodontits?
It is the paedodontis who has the skill to guide the child through the different dental procedures in order for the children to accept this new experience without developing anxiety or fear, and consequently achieve in the long term a positive attitude about the dentist and proper dental health in adults.

Why are baby teeth important?
Oral health in milk teething promotes proper craniofacial development and is the best guide for the permanent tooth eruption. Plays an important role in the proper development of the child, both physiologically (nutrition, respiration, phonation ...) and psychologically, also influences their appearance and self-esteem contributing to their overall health and quality of life.
So, during childhood, the primary teeth have more functions than future permanent teeth, as long as they are intact and well maintained.
At three years old, one of three children have cavities, at four years the figure rises to 63 percent; and at five years the figure is situated almost at 85 percent. Most of the time, mom and dad have to be blamed, as they do not teach the child to brush his teeth: cavities of milk tooth should never be underestimated, because if not treated rapidly can cause inflammation. Also, if the tooth is severely damaged that has to be removed, it will form and empty space and permanent teeth grow haphazardly, thus orthodontics to correct them will be necessary.
