What is paediatric dentistry?
This is the branch of odontology responsible for preventing, diagnosing and treating oral problems in children aged between 6 months (when their milk teeth are starting to grow) and 12-14 years (when they have all of their permanent teeth). However, these ages are approximate since no two children are the same.
The first dental visit for children is advisable at 6-7 months old, even before they have their first teeth. Starting from that first visit, your dentist will establish a schedule of frequent visits to make sure that your child continues to enjoy good dental health.
