Paedodontics is the branch of dentistry dealing with the dental treatment of a special group of patients – from babies, toddlers, children to young adults (those under 18 years of age).
Paedodontists (Paediatric dentists) are sometimes known as children’s dentists or “kiddie” dentists. They place a significant importance on the maintenance of the primary teeth and in preventing tooth decay. They also monitor growth and development of the dentition and jaws.
They are trained in the care of special needs patients including those with significant medical, physical or mental disabilities.
Paedodontists also work closely with other specialists such as oral & maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists and prosthodontists to ensure a comprehensive and seamless approach to your dental treatment.
