Pediatric Dentistry is the main body that aims to preserve the health of the children and their teeth. Like pediatricians, pediatric dentists (pedodontists) try to solve the problems of oral and dental health in children.
In addition to the solution of oral health problems in children, pedodontists have received specialization training in addition to dental education on preventive dentistry practices, communication with children, positive behavior guidance for defeating dentist fear and other techniques. The ideal time for this is the six months after the first teeth of the baby. Because the teeth related problems start at a very early age.
In this period, it is possible to prevent the problems that will arise by getting acquainted with the baby's nutrition, dental care and sucking habit.
