Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry/ pedodontics is the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence.

Pediatric dentists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as educational resources for parents.

Pediatric Dentists undergo 3 years post graduate specialty training to equip themselves to manage the dental needs of children in relation to prevention, treatment, behavioural management and development.

Paediatric Dentists are trained to manage complex treatment, and children not easily managed by general practitioners or Oral Health Therapists.

It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child's first birthday.

It is important to establish a comprehensive and accessible ongoing relationship between the dentist and patient – referring to this as the patient's "dental home".

This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits, and treat as needed and as simply as possible.

Additionally, parents are given a program of preventative home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), a caries risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counselling , and information on growth and development
