Pedodontics (Pediatric Dentistry) in Turkey ANTALYA

Pedodontics is the science that examines and solves the problems related to oral and dental health in the period from birth to the end of adolescence. Pediatric dentistry aims to preserve the healthy structure of children’s milk teeth and teeth that will be permanent in adulthood.

What is Pedodontics? What Age Group Does It Treat?

Pedodontics (Pediatric Dentistry) is a department that aims to protect the milk and permanent teeth of 0-15 age group children in a healthy manner and to eliminate the problems caused by caries, trauma, hereditary and similar factors in these teeth. Pedodontics (pediatric dentistry) consists of different applications such as the treatment of caries in milk teeth and permanent teeth until the eruption of permanent teeth with the eruption of deciduous teeth, the protection of toothless areas that will occur as a result of early tooth extraction by applying different techniques, the application of prostheses in children born without teeth.

Children’s dental treatment primarily aims at the healthy eruption of the milk teeth that erupt in childhood and the healthy eruption of the permanent teeth that will replace the milk teeth.

What is the Importance of Baby Teeth in Children?

In general, in the first six months of infancy, milk teeth are present until the permanent teeth take their place in the mouth. In this respect, milk teeth are important both during development and because they shape permanent teeth. Thanks to keeping the milk teeth in the mouth in a healthy way, the permanent teeth are also correctly positioned and an aesthetic tooth alignment is provided. However, in case of early loss of milk teeth, other teeth slide into the gap created by the missing tooth, and as a result, the tooth alignment is disrupted. The permanent teeth that will come from behind cannot be positioned correctly under these conditions and the general aesthetic alignment of the teeth is lost. In addition, the person suffers from malnutrition. This affects the child’s development.

What are the frequency and causes of caries in children?

We can say that the incidence of decayed teeth in children is approximately 80-90%. Among the reasons for this are factors such as wrong eating habits and not paying attention to oral hygiene. In addition, if caries develops in the early period, factors such as giving night milk, giving the false pacifier given to babies dipped in sweet nutrients such as honey and jam cause the formation of rotten teeth.

What is bottle rot?

Breast milk, artificial milk or formulas, which have an important place in the nutrition of babies, contain sugar as natural ingredients. If the baby takes breast milk or formula with a bottle before going to sleep at night, the nutrients accumulate in the mouth and remain there for a long time. The sugar in it creates a suitable environment for tooth decay. should be done. The best precaution that can be taken for this is to make babies drink water before sleep. For the prevention of baby bottle caries;

  • The baby should not sleep with a bottle at night.
  • Sweeteners such as sugar or honey should not be added to his food or milk.
  • The pacifier should not be applied to substances such as honey or jam.
  • The baby’s mouth should be cleaned with a clean cloth after feeding.
  • After the baby’s meal, water should definitely be drunk.

What should be done to reduce dental caries in children? How Should Children’s Dental Care Be?

  • Children should be assisted while brushing their teeth. The habit of brushing your teeth twice a day after breakfast and before going to bed at night should be gained.
  • In order to prevent baby bottle cavities, care should be taken in the use of feeding bottles. Children should be provided with fluoride. Fluoride can be obtained from drinking water, fluorine tablets, mouthwashes, fluoridated toothpastes and dentist’s applications.
  • Attention should be paid to the junk food that children will eat between meals. Foods containing sugar and starch feed the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Therefore, attention should be paid to snacks.

What are the Dental Care Practices for Children?

As with any disease, early diagnosis is extremely important in dental diseases. At this point, they should go to the pediatric dental clinic regularly once a month and be checked by a pediatric dentist. In these controls, everything related to child oral health is determined and treatment is started.

Pediatric dentists apply different methods to protect milk teeth and permanent teeth from caries and various diseases in children. These; methods such as teaching the concept of oral hygiene to children, teaching tooth brushing methods, acquiring the habit of brushing teeth, applying systemic fluoride and applying fissure sealant. With these methods, the protection of child dental health is ensured.

Fluoride applications: It is the most effective form of treatment used in preventive dentistry. Fluoride treatments; It can be applied in healthy people, in people who are prone to caries, in the treatment of sensitivity and erosion in the teeth, and in people with systemic diseases that need special care. These applications take place at intervals and rates determined according to the age of the person and the risk of caries formation.

Fissure sealants: There are areas where foods will stick in the recesses and protrusions on the chewing surfaces of the molars anatomically. Caries in the teeth occur in areas that are difficult to clean. Fissure sealants make the surfaces in these areas of the teeth shallow, reduce the adhesion of food and create a suitable surface to facilitate brushing. After these applications, the formation of caries in the teeth decreases by 70-80%.

When I went to Antalya on 20/11/2019 for vacation, it is the perfect polyclinic I went to as a result of my toothache. I can’t go inside the dentist, let alone sit in the dental chair. However, as soon as I entered, I was greeted warmly and sincerely. I overcame my phobia thanks to Dr.Ahmet Bey. He did my root canal treatment and filling very successfully. I was so comfortable going to the 2nd session that I went running.
Thanks to the whole Panoramik Oral and Dental Polyclinic team.





In another polyclinic where I had an unsuccessful root canal treatment, panoromic, where I came for my discomfort and information, was very interested in me, informed me and thank you very much for directing me to save the tooth that was called unsurvivable, unfortunately I do not remember the name of my teacher, but I could not pass 5 stars to such working and quality places, thank you very much again.





I was examined by Hüseyin Bey and Samed Bey. The team is very interested and they understand every question you have and answer calmly. I sent many of my friends to Mrs. Esra, they were all very satisfied. Thank you.🙏
