Pediatric Dentistry is a branch of dentistry where preventive and curative services are applied, which ensures the protection of the health of milk and permanent teeth in children between the ages of 0-14.
When do children have teeth?
Teething occurs twice in individuals. Temporary milk teeth start to come out 6 months after birth and milk dentition is completed at 2 years of age. 6-month deviations in the eruption time of milk teeth are normal. Children have a total of 20 milk teeth in their mouth.
From the age of 6, permanent teeth begin to emerge in children and “6 year old teeth” first appear in the mouth behind the milk teeth. In the following period, milk teeth fall off and leave their places to permanent teeth, and around the age of 12, 28 permanent teeth are completed in the mouth. 6-month deviations are considered normal in the emergence of permanent teeth.
Why is it important to protect and treat milk teeth?
Children with healthy milk teeth can perform their nutrition and speech functions in a healthy way, so their growth and development are not adversely affected. However, children with toothache refuse to eat, which negatively affects their growth and development. In addition, children with missing milk teeth get used to mispronounce certain letters while speaking, and this habit can continue for life. Because their teeth are missing or black from decay, children may feel ugly, avoid smiling and psychologically affect their friends.
In addition to such situations, milk teeth are necessary for the development of jaws and for the permanent teeth under them to settle in their correct places. In researches, one of the most important causes of crowding in permanent teeth has been stated as early extraction of milk teeth. For this reason, it is very important to keep the milk teeth healthy in the mouth until the age of falling and to make the necessary treatments.
