Children's Oral Health: What are the most important dental treatments?

by Wildsmile

In the first year of life a child has on average 8 teeth, which need all the attention and care of a specialist.

Pediatric dentistry is a speciality of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of children from 0 to beyond adolescence. It is a vital field within oral health, as it offers integral preventive treatments, as well as the solution to some premature pathologies.


What are the most important dental treatments for children?

Below, we explain the most common pediatric dental treatments performed on children, so that you can know which are the most common pathologies and their solutions.


1. Dental cleaning


It is an essential treatment for dental health both for children and adults as it prevents periodontal diseases and reduces the risk of dental caries.


2. Fluoride application


As many of the treatments in paediatric dentistry are for preventive purposes, fluoride is one of the most important, as it strengthens the enamel of the teeth, making them stronger and more resistant to caries.


3. Dental sealants


This is another of the most common treatments as it is highly effective for reducing and preventing dental caries. They are put on the chewing surface of the teeth to prevent bacteria from accumulating in these areas, causing cavities.


4. Dental appliances


There is a wide variety of dental appliances for children that are specially designed for each problem. The most common are the removable ones, but there are cases in which children will need fixed appliances such as braces, this will be decided by the paediatric dentist.


5. Pulpectomy or Pediatric-endodontics


Root canal treatment on milk teeth, what's the point if they are going to fall out later? These are some of the questions most frequently asked by parents to paediatric dentists. And the answer is yes, it is very important to perform pulpectomy on milk teeth, as these have an important function in jaw development and creating spaces for the permanent teeth. Allowing the advance of dental caries in a milk tooth compromises the health of the back tooth.


Now that you know the importance of paediatric dentistry in children's oral health, don't forget to visit the dentist to check your child's oral health. Remember that prevention is the key to ensuring that your child will develop strong, healthy teeth.
