We provide care that will positively affect the health and quality of life of you and your child forever.
Taking care of your child’s teeth starts with their eruption. The American and European Academy for Pediatric Dentistry recommend that children visit a dentist’s office when their first tooth appears or before their first birthday.
At the child’s first dental visit, we teach you about nutrition, oral care and what to expect in the coming years. We will offer you guidelines for quality prevention according to its individual needs, as well as advice on how to behave in case of trauma or emergencies. An early first visit to the dentist ensures a reduction in stress in the event of future treatment and is a prerequisite for the development of healthy and radiant children’s smiles.
The Dental Home Concept
The dental home is the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, including all aspects of oral health care, provided in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-oriented way. The dental home should be established no later than 12 months of age to help children and their families live a life of oral health. The dental home has a huge prevention value – its goal is to prevent oral diseases, includes their treatment if necessary, and referral to specialists when appropriate. This definition was developed by the Clinical Affairs Council of the American Academy for Pediatric Dentistry and was adopted in 2006. We believe in this concept and are committed to providing a everything our patients need for a healthy smile.
At Dente, we not only examine the child, but also learn about his or her medical history and previous dental experiences, as well as the reasons for visiting us. Our goal is to gradually get closer to your child and help them feel safe every time they visit our studio. The earlier we start building trust between the child and our specialists, the better.
We want to ensure that you and your child receive an in-depth consultation with Dr. Veneva and that you have enough time to ask our team any questions that arise during the examination.
A walk in our office – we will introduce the child to the dental environment in the form of a game.
Pleasant polishing of the teeth, which has two indisputable advantages:
1) Pleasant experience – tickling polishing brush, fresh feeling and clean teeth.
2) Positive psychological effect – the child realizes that the dental handpiece is not threatening.
Thorough examination of the teeth and the entire oral cavity. As a game we will explain to the child what caries is and why it occurs. We know that children are small researchers, so on a large monitor the child will be able to see his teeth up close.
After the examination we will outline all any existing problems with the teeth, we will offer a treatment and prevention plan.
We will give oral hygiene instructions with recommendations to help you and your child take care of their teeth and improve their overall quality of life.
How to prepare your child for his first examination?
Be positive in your attitude towards the dentist. Tell your child about the benefits of taking care of your teeth. Always answer all his questions about dental health and the dentist honestly. Read together books on teeth, download a mobile application type game that shows the child the dental environment. Make the trip to the office interesting for the child, take with him his favorite toy. In a game situation, we can show the review of the toy first. Avoid telling negative stories about the dental environment or turning a visit to the dentist into a threat or punishment. Give up words that cause anxiety, such as “needle”, “pain” or “fear”. Avoid expressions with the “no” particle – such as “it’s not scary” or “it doesn’t hurt”, “don’t worry”. Our mind works so that it first hears “scary” and “hurts”, then denies them. A child who has no previous experience with a dentist will wonder why it is scary or painful and will expect these experiences subconsciously. Replace these expressions with positive ones – “it’s fun”, “tickle”, “stay calm”. The child’s first visit to the dentist should be for a preventive examination and should not be related to treatment.
Sealants are dental materials that protect from tooth decay in children. They can be placed only on teeth with a chewing surface – molars and premolars. They are usually placed on newly erupted permanent teeth up to 2 years after the eruption of the tooth, but they can also be placed on primary molars. They create a barrier against the factors that cause decay and thus protect newly erupted teeth.
The symptoms and treatment in these situations are specific for primary and newly erupted permanent teeth. The protocols we follow in the treatment are recommended by the National Association of Pediatric Dentists and the European Academy for Pediatric Dentistry.
Sometimes dental procedures can be associated with discomfort and pain. We make every effort to turn each visit into a positive experience for the child. Every child or adolescent has the right to painless diagnosis and treatment, which sometimes means appropriate use of local anesthesia.
Preformed crowns shield and protect the entire surface of the tooth, allowing it to function exactly like the original tooth. Crowns aim to strengthen it, while protecting the existing structure, prolonging the life of the tooth more than with a filling or other restoration.
Crowns for primary teeth are pre-made in different sizes and shapes for children’s chewing teeth. They require minimal preparation of the tooth and are placed in one visit.
In the case of dental trauma, time is of the essence. Call immediately for an emergency checkup. If your child has a broken tooth, rinse it and dip it in a glass of milk. If you are near a pharmacy – buy saline solution and dip the tooth in it. Apply light pressure to the wound to limit bleeding.
