What you should know about how we practice pediatric dentistry

As medical professionals, our team knows that both oral health and general health are crucial to a child’s optimal development and overall wellbeing. As dentists we also play an important role in ensuring that a child not only has the right conditions for healthy growth, but in foreseeing future dental issues and preventing them through outstanding oral habits and gold standard pediatric dentistry protocols that start small, but last a lifetime.

Did you know that…

  • Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease?
  • 3 in 5 kids have visible signs of decay on their teeth?
  • Only 2 in 4 children brush their teeth twice a day?
  • 1 in 5 kids have untreated cavities?
  • One in three 12-year-olds are embarrassed to smile because of their teeth?
  • 51 million hours of school are missed because of oral health issues?
  • Every €1 invested in preventative pediatric dentistry can save parents up to €50 on emergency procedures and restorative treatments?
  • A poor diet and insufficient tooth brushing during a child’s first two years of life can increase the risk of cavities? And that untreated cavities can lead to problems with speech and chewing, but also compromise play and learning?
  • Sports injuries are responsible for 10% to 39% of dental injuries in kids? And that prevention starts with wearing a mouth guard?
  • A broken or even a permanent tooth that has been knocked out can be saved?
  • The earlier kids start visiting the dentist, the more comfortable they will feel at the clinic? And the more likely oral health will be a priority as they grow older?

Oral health challenges in kids

Poor oral health directly affects general health and can cause other issues, even in young children. Pediatric dentistry can help diagnose and treat sleep breathing disorders, improper oral habits, facial growth and development problems, as well as propose airway management protocols and functional appliances if a child suffers from ADHD. If you’re worried about any of these issues, take our quick online quiz or contact our highly specialised Pediatric Facial Growth & Airway Health team.
