Pedodontics - Dental advice
Normally, the first teeth erupt between 6 and 12 months. When the tooth breaks through the gum, this one may be irritated and painful. Rub the gums with a clean finger, the back of a spoon or a cold, damp cloth can help relieve pain. Teething rings also work very well, but the teething biscuits should be avoided as they contain sugar, which can be harmful to teeth. As soon as the first teeth appear, it is important to start brushing with a soft brush and toothpaste without fluoride.
First visit for your child
It is recommended to take an appointment for your child at the age of 1 year.
During this first visit, the dentist and dental hygienist will establish a trust relationship with your child and take care to examine his teeth, make a cleaning, review your brushing techniques and use flossing.Approximately 50% of the population has a certain fear of the dentist.
It is important to avoid spreading this fear to their children. Information and a positive attitude will reassure and will determine the future. Your collaboration is important before, during and after the visit.Early childhood caries
