Pediatric Dentistry is the specialty dedicated to the oral health of children, adolescents, pregnant women and patients with special needs.
The first consultations of pediatric dentistry have a preventive and therapeutic component and are essential to prepare parents and children for good habits of brushing and nutrition. They will make all the difference in the development or not of dental caries. In addition, they provide a follow-up that will ensure that phonetic and chewing functions are properly consolidated.
The frequency of visits to Pediatric Dentistry will depend on each child, but the recommended one will be every 6 months or once a year, since childhood is the stage where there are more situations of avulsions and fractures in the teeth. It is also an age that has some specific pathologies related to the growth of your child.
On the other hand, the sooner the child is seen by the Pediatric Dentistry, the sooner he will create a link with the professional, prematurely demystifying the ‘bogeyman’ associated with dentists.
At Dr Hugo Madeira clinic, we have transformed the Office of Pediatric Dentistry into a magic world, a ‘world of play’ full of lively characters, color and little surprises, where the little ones feel at home.
