What are Pedodontic (Pediatric Dentistry) Procedures?
Pedodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the maintenance of oral and dental health and with diagnosis and treatment of the conditions for infants and pediatric patients.
In the field of Pedodontics;
• Topical floride application to both primary teeth and permanent teeth of the children ensures that the teeth are stronger and more resistant to caries.
• Deep indentations on chewing surfaces that cavities mostly occur are closed using fissure sealant and teeth are protected against cavities.
• Caries are treated with filling or extraction.
• Bad habits like thumb sucking, lip sucking and incorrect swallowing are diagnosed and treated.
