Importance of Approach in Pediatric Dental Treatment
Pediatric dental treatments require care and patience with a special approach. Since children meet the dentists in young ages, attitude of dentist forms a basis for their concerns against doctors and future health experiences.
We recommend that control examinations with dentists start at the age of 3 for the children. We spend maximum effort to ensure that specialist Pedodontists perform the pediatric dental treatments, environment in clinic is prepared such that children like the atmosphere, the approach to the children makes them like their dentists.
Years of experience taught us that as a result of the treatments we perform with this point of view, children who hesitate to enter the clinic in the first meeting present to the clinic joyfully after a while. Therefore, both children and their parents spend the treatment process happily.
When is General Anesthesia Necessary in Pediatric Dental Treatments?
In case of multiple caries and teeth requiring extraction in children, pediatric treatments get harder. Especially the concerns originating from giving the injections while performing anesthesia (single tooth STA anesthesia can regress the problem to some extend) can make the treatment impossible in spite of all efforts of the child. If the child never opens mouth, cries continuously, does not want to leave their parents’ lap and if those behaviors do not change even after getting used to clinic, general anesthesia can be applied. Difficulty living with multiple painful teeth and teeth requiring extraction, inability to even eating foods make the dental treatments obligatory. All necessary treatments are performed within 1 hour under general anesthesia. Child gets rid of all problems with the procedure performed in a single session. There is no need to stay in hospital at the night of this procedure.
