Children’s Dental Problem

Paediatric Dentistry deals with all aspects of oral care in children. These include the prevention, diagnosis and management of common dental diseases like caries and gum disease, the interception and early correction of minor malocclusions and the detection and management of dental anomalies and injury to children’s teeth.

The paediatric dentists specialise in training young children to accept dental treatment. Children who would especially benefit from the long term care of a paediatric dentist include those who are at high risk of developing dental disease and children with special needs.
