Paediatric dentistry is an area of dental medicine that deals with care for the youngest ones – your children. An important part of paediatric dentistry is training children to perform the right hygiene procedures, which are necessary to maintain their teeth white and healthy.

Over the course of a person’s life, their first and temporary set of 20 teeth is replaced by a permanent set of 32 teeth. Some anatomic and physiological characteristics of temporary teeth, as well as those of permanent teeth immediately after their eruption, determine the methods and approaches used in their treatment. This is exactly what paediatric dentistry deals with. Paediatric dentistry has another very important function: to instil a positive attitude towards dental treatment in the child. Our specialists in paediatric dentistry offer special training, teaching current and future parents how to instil good oral hygiene habits in children, so that they have healthy and pearly-white teeth. Having healthy and white teeth during childhood is extremely important. The rotting of temporary teeth may result in damage to the buds of the permanent teeth.

That is why the maintenance of good oral hygiene and regular visits to a paediatric dentist are recommended. Moreover, the instillation of proper dental protection habits from an early age results in good dental health in the future. Silanisation is a method widely used in paediatric dentistry, where a protective layer is applied to newly-erupted permanent teeth. After their eruption, permanent molars and premolars have a strongly expressed masticatory relief (they have deep hollows on their masticatory surface). During this period, the final mineralisation of the enamel is not complete either. These two factors facilitate the easy development of caries. Filling this surface with a protective layer for a period of 1-2 years precludes the development of caries and helps the final mineralisation of the enamel. Silanisation is also the most pleasant procedure for your children. It is also one of the ways of improving your child’s attitude to paediatric dentistry.
