Children's Dentistry

The health of the child depends on the parents. Teeth begin to be laid and saturated with minerals and trace elements long before the baby’s birth. In the first six months of life, most of the child’s milk teeth and some permanent teeth are formed, and by the age of 2.5, the rudiments of permanent teeth are laid.

At this stage, showing the child to a pediatric dentist who will tell you what to look for is essential. Aesthetic Dental doctors in the matter of pediatric dentistry focus on the prevention of oral diseases.

Some dental problems in children→

Stains on a child’s teeth are not only a cosmetic problem but also the first signal of the beginning of the development of caries. Caries is a disease in which tooth enamel is gradually destroyed, and the penetration of pathogenic microbes is into the tooth’s inner layers. For the treatment of caries in the early stages, the method of infiltration is used – dental treatment without drilling and painlessly. With medium caries, a filling is necessary.

Milk teeth differ in structure from permanent teeth. They are more porous, characterized by a low mineralization, thin enamel layer, and wide root canals, contributing to the rapid penetration of pathogens deep into the tooth, leading to pulpitis and periodontitis.

A visit to the dentist is always a hectic hike for almost every person. This is especially alarming for babies. A family trip to the dentist will be a comfortable and convenient way to visit a doctor. Aesthetic Dental offers services for the whole family at the right time or in unforeseen situations.

There is no need to visit several medical institutions to consult with specialists or search for an X-ray room. Everything is located in one building, significantly reducing the time of preventive consultations and, even more so, the treatment procedure.

Family dentists have a wider body of knowledge that allows them to examine and treat patients of any age. Features of the structure and development of teeth in childhood involve periodic examinations by an orthodontist, which are not always available in every dental clinic.

Sealing of teeth in children →

One of the simplest and most effective preventive procedures is to fill the surface of teeth with a complex relief with a thin and durable layer with a special sealant.

This preventive procedure helps protect teeth from tooth decay and also stops its development at an early stage. For a child, tooth sealing is easier and faster than caries treatment. Fissure sealing does not cause fear since this procedure is painless.

Therefore, Aesthetic Dental dentists recommend bringing children before signs of enamel damage and other alarming symptoms appear. But, not all children are shown fissure sealing, and only a doctor can establish its necessity.

Sedation for children→

Aesthetic Dental doctors pay great attention to the psychological comfort of young patients and the way to calm children during dental treatment. It can be difficult for parents and a doctor to persuade a child of 4-5 years old to sit quietly in a dental chair for at least 10 minutes. Nitrous oxide, in such cases, will help keep the baby in a static state for almost an hour. This time is enough for the doctor to carry out the treatment. The inhalation sedation method in pediatric dentistry is a pleasant and safe component in analgesic measures. Preparatory measures for sedation are not required.

Advice to parents: A pediatric dentist is a doctor your child needs to visit twice a year.


Exposure to X-rays, in one way or another, negatively affects the human body’s cells.

Under normal circumstances, doctors do not recommend X-ray examinations of children under seven. But there are cases when the danger of the disease is much more severe than the potential harm from exposure to gamma rays. In this case, an X-ray is a mandatory procedure.

The skeletal system is most susceptible to radiation in children from 3 to 12 years old. If the dose is exceeded, there is a risk of slowing down bone growth.

As for the frequency, the standard version is only two examinations per year. In this case, the radiation dose will be minimal.


It is widely believed among parents that the treatment of milk teeth in children, especially under anesthesia, is a waste of time, money, and effort. Even more perplexing for parents is the need to install crowns on milk teeth. Not all parents know that crowns are also placed on milk teeth. This is an effective and safe way to restore – tooth decay stops, it thoroughly performs its functions, and looks beautiful and natural.

A possible need for crowns on milk-chewing teeth arises at 2 to 10 years old. The minimum age of the patient with prosthetics is 1.4 years.

Colored fillings are a psychological maneuver to divert the child’s attention from the upcoming therapeutic procedures. The common choice of the seal color allows the baby to be distracted and charged with positive and pleasant anticipation. Color fillings are available in rich, beautiful forms – lemon yellow, golden, silver, blue, pink, orange, green, and blue.
