Healthy teeth are essential for wellbeing and health of a child. That is why it is important to teach a child to brush teeth from an early age and not to be afraid to visit a dentist. To teach a child not to be afraid, it is necessary to present him or her a dentist long before you have the need of treatment. In such a case, a visit to a doctor will not be associated with pain and will not provoke stress.
The first visit to a dentist should take place at the age of 8–12 months, when a baby has cut the first teeth. This is the age when it is necessary to inculcate a habit of brushing teeth. Brush baby's teeth twice a day, select a toothpaste according to baby’s age.
It is also important to adhere to the dietary regimen:
- feed a child according to the schedule,
- avoid frequent quick meals,
- reduce the amount of fast carbs (cookies, flakes, sweet bars, pastille, candies),
- give water, not sweetened beverages
Preventive examinations by a pediatric dentist are necessary not only to determine and eliminate the problem in due time, but also to train the habit of regular visits of a dentist.

Caries is the most common children’s disease. It is a pathological process in a tooth that softens the tissue and provokes darkening in the affected area. The main cause of caries is the dental plaque which leads to gradual dental enamel degradation and to the disease together with other factors (dietary regimen, quality and quantity of saliva, fluoride deficiency, etc.).
Caries can show no symptoms and be unnoticed not only by the parents. Sometimes even a checkup by a doctor is not enough for determining of a diagnosis. Modern diagnostic equipment is used for early detection of dental diseases at Dobrobut clinic chain. To reveal the caries, spot filming is used. In the early stages, when enamel integrity is preserved, correction of hygiene and remineralization therapy are enough for treatment. Caries that affects enamel and dentin, requires immediate treatment.
Many parents think that the first milk teeth are not worth treatment because they will fall out soon. However,unhealthy milk teeth can cause many health problems.

Untreated teeth can cause gingival inflammation and also teeth curvature and disorders of occlusion formation.
