FIRST DENTAL EXAMINATION

Examining the first teeth in babies, the healthcondition of the permanent teeth will be predicted. If there is a situation to endanger the health of the future permanent teeth, necessary interventions are made to prepare the mouth for healthy teeth.

PREPARATION PROCESS FOR FIRST DENTAL EXAMINATION

Being a short period of time, it is a psychological preparation of the baby(5-9 months old) totally done by the parents. You should neveradress the child as afraid, it won't hurt, it will soon pass. Even the baby can't talk, it can sense the meaning, and percieve the idea that  dentists are frightening.. You should be calm and act as you usual. 

FLUORIDE APPLICATION 

An application to provide the teeth, floure, a mineral found in nature, is rubbed on teeth in appropriate amount and way. This protects the teeth from caries the bacteria and yellowing. It is painless and is applied by a small brush. 

CARIES EXAMINATION

The new teeth in children are vulnerable because of consuming too much sugar on sucking action or milk. It is called as baby bottle decay. Once the decay is spotted we treat the tooth and provide precautions for the other teeth. 

The decayed part of the tooth is removed, cleaned by special apparatus under local anesthetic. Then the cavity is filled with special filling material. The filling is done by composite or amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings consists of metal alloys. Composite filling has the same color with the teeth. 

HOW TO OVERCOME THE FEAR OF DENTIST 

95% of the population have dentist phobia and it begins at childhood. People tend to omit the first examination and this causes more serious problems in the mouth. Mouth area is sensitive and the tolls a dentist uses may cause this problem. Having the child for its first examination will create a pleasant feeling in the child's mind with the beautiful, child friendly environment of our pedodontics clinic. Parents should explain the child what an examination is without spoiling the child. The pedodontist's attitude towords the child is highly important. The child should come to appointment early so that the child would get used to the environment and get acquainted with the doctor. The parents should leave the child alone with the doctor and not pass over their own fear to the child if the child can easily can sit on the chair.

HOW TO TEACH THE CHILDREN ABOUT DENTAL CARE

Dental health is the habit acquired in childhood. Doctors and parent should cooperate for the child to understand the importance of healthy teeth. The pedodontist shouldn't be changed once the child is used to the doctor. A tooth brush and the tooth paste should be presented to the child either by the parents or the dentist. The child should be helped to acquire the habit of brushing teeth 3 times a day- morning,noon,night. Pedodontist will show the child how to brush teeth and the parents will encourage the child by brushing with him/her.
