What is a children's dentist? All about pediatric dentistry


A pediatric dentist or children's dentist is a dentist who specializes in the field of pediatrics. They focus on recognizing the diseases, problems and conditions of children, dealing with dental care from the first years of growth until almost adolescence.   


The 5 most common dental treatments for children


If you're still new to being a mum or dad, you may be wondering what treatments children may need to ensure good dental and oral health. Here are the most common ones:   


Fissure sealants


This is a method to prevent cavities, as the first ones can develop from the appearance of the first milk teeth, so it is better to prevent than to cure. Fissures that may appear between the teeth are filled, and it is completely painless.

Frequently asked questions


Below, we answer the most frequently asked questions that parents often ask us when it concerns taking their child to the dentist.


When does my child have to visit the dentist?


Ideally, children should first visit the dentist before they are 3 years old. Many parents believe that until their teeth start to fall out, it is not the right time to visit the dentist, but this is wrong. Baby teeth also need the supervision of a pediatric dentist.

We will ensure that all procedures are painless and also that they understand why it is important to do what we do and the benefits it will have for their smile in the future.

What does social security cover for children's dental health?


Social security for children varies from country to country, although there are generally a limited number of dental services covered, for which a fixed fee is charged depending on the treatment. However, waiting lists can be detrimental to children's oral health, as can a lack of specialists in certain areas. Therefore, if you are worried about them, the best thing to do is not to waste any more time and go to the dentist.
