Paediatric Dentistry is as important as the adult one.
Children require the same level of dental care as adults. We understand how crucial it is for parents like you to locate a pediatric dentist who gives your child a positive and comforting experience.
You need not worry if this is your child’s first visit to the dentist or if you need specialized care because our pediatric dentist is specially educated to treat and care for the dental health of infants, toddlers, children, as well as those who have special needs.
At VilaFortuny, we put a lot of effort into earning the trust of our younger patients and ensuring that they have a blast each time they visit.
As soon as the first tooth appears and no later than the kid’s first birthday, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises that you take your child to a pediatric dentist. Our pediatric dentist places a strong emphasis on preventative treatment during these early visits, as well as teaching parents about excellent oral habits, dietary patterns, and oral hygiene. Setting the groundwork for a lifetime of healthy smiles requires all of these.
Depending on your child’s age, level of cooperation, and other behavioral factors, our pediatric dentist may give advice and treatments. All of these factors are taken into account when providing gentle, thorough dental care that is also relaxing.
Vilafortuny offers preventative and pediatric dental procedures, along with the addition of laser pain relief techniques.
According to specialists and the most recent studies, a child’s dental hygiene practices will significantly affect how healthy they are as adults. The good news is that, according to experts, preventative dental treatment may significantly enhance the oral health of many kids, and it’s now feasible for kids to grow up without ever experiencing tooth decay.
The dental department at Vilafortuny offers the level of care that kids require, along with a comprehensive range of preventative and pediatric dental procedures. We utilize lasers when necessary to alleviate any pain and discomfort experienced by the child as well as to stop the development of any future phobias or anxieties.
We offer the following actions to guarantee that kids receive quality dental care.
Avoid giving your infant a bottle of milk or juice right before bed time, clean the baby’s teeth after each feeding, and start brushing your baby’s teeth as soon as the first tooth erupts.
Early, preventative dental visits
After turning one, a youngster should make their first trip to the dentist. Fluoride may also be applied during this appointment, which also includes an introduction to the dentist chair and a teeth examination. After 18 months, toddlers should undergo checkups twice a year.
The chewing surface of a child’s teeth is where more than half of their cavities form. A dental sealant is applied to these surface to prevent food from becoming stuck there. This barrier between the tooth and the germs stops deterioration.
Keep a healthy diet.
Everyone knows this, but it bears repeating: children should be encouraged to consume nutritious snacks and steer clear of foods or beverages with excessive sugar because this is bad for their teeth.
Sharp pain of this nature worsens at night. You can administer a pediatric Panadol for short-term comfort and make an appointment with the dentist as soon as you can.
Bad habits in children, such as finger and thumb sucking, improper swallowing, and mouth breathing, are possible. The undesirable behaviors should be avoided as early as possible since they lead to poor facial development, a retracted lower jaw, and crowded teeth.
Our orthodontist can identify and assess any issues and provide advice on whether treatment is warranted with a checkup no later than the age of seven.
