PAEDIATRIC DENTISTRY AT INTEGRA
HIGH-QUALITY DENTISTRY FOR YOUR CHILD
Do you remember your first school pictures? Many primary school pupils smile proudly into the camera with a big gap between their teeth. The first permanent teeth come through during elementary school and form the basis for a complete "adult set". What many people do not know, however, is that their child's first visit to the paediatric dentist should be on the calendar well before they start school.
A VISIT TO THE DENTIST WITHOUT TEETH?
Specialized paediatric dentists recommend scheduling your baby's first dental appointment even before their first tooth is visible. In children, dental health also means keeping an eye on tooth development and skull growth in order not to miss the ideal time for any possible early orthodontic treatments. Your paediatric dentist will also have tips on oral hygiene and nutrition for your baby, toddler or child. This ensures that your child's oral health starts out right. Depending on the individual risk for tooth decay, we recommend bringing your child in to the dentist for a check-up every 3-6 months.
Why go to a paediatric dentist?
Children are not simply small adults, which is why the focus of paediatric dentists is very different from that of a dentist who treats adults. When treating little ones, paediatric dentists use special treatment concepts that are adapted to the child’s development, taking into account the needs of their young patients. Whether your child develops a fear of the dentist, practices good oral hygiene and can preserve their teeth into old age is significantly influenced by their first experiences with the topic of dental health.
At INTEGRA Kids, we don't simply look at your child from a dentistry perspective. In our practice, we also take into account the child's level of mental and motor development as well as their nature and temperament and encourage their desire for knowledge and play. Our goal is to create an environment during our care in which your child feels comfortable, can objectively deal with the subject of oral hygiene and thus automatically develops a curiosity and an interest in healthy teeth.
