Pedodontics is the part of dentistry that provides the treatment of milk and permanent teeth of children between the ages of 0-12, as well as providing children with the habit of regular oral care and providing protective dentistry services for children between the ages of 0-12. In recent years, research on the frequency of tooth decay has shown that it is around 90% in the age group (2-6) and in the mid-age period (7-12). For this reason, it is of great importance to apply preventive formulas of pediatric dentistry to protect the child’s general health, which is the most important part of his or her future oral and dental health.
Milk teeth are completed between 24 and 30 months. In this way, they will have 20 teeth, 10 in the upper jaw and 10 in the lower jaw.
When the child reaches the age of 7, the milk teeth erupt, first the lower front incisors, then the upper ones, then the canines and molars. Subsequently, the teeth we call permanent (permanent) are lost. Permanent teeth are strong, solid teeth that live with you for a lifetime. Just as the emergence of milk teeth may occur before or after the average time, loss may occur before the age of 7 (5-6 years) or may continue until the age of 9.

Milk teeth preserve the space needed for permanent teeth. Early extraction can lead to crooked teeth and jaw problems. Milk teeth strengthen the jaw bone and muscles. For a healthy mouth, milk teeth should remain in the mouth until the age of 6-12.
Children can be taken to the dentist when their first teeth come out, that is, when they are 6-12 months old. It would be beneficial for him/her to meet the dentist at the latest after all the primary teeth have emerged, that is, at approximately 24 months of age.

0-2 years:

During teething, which usually starts between the 6th and 9th months, we must clean the oral cavity with gauze. A few days after the tooth emerges, we should start brushing the tooth with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Initially scrub using only water.

After 4 years of age:

If your child starts spitting up while brushing his teeth.

After 6 years of age:

It is a very important time for a child to turn 6 when milk teeth begin to fall out and permanent teeth begin to emerge. In order to prevent tooth decay, you should be taught how to use dental floss as well as brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Additionally, preventive procedures should be done by going to the dentist.

After 8 years of age:

Children should now brush their teeth with a suitable toothbrush and toothpaste at least twice a day and after sweet foods and drinks.

First of all, an x-ray must be taken and a correct analysis must be made by an expert team. When root canal treatment and filling do not yield results and the infection is at a level that will damage the permanent teeth, milk teeth should be extracted as a last resort.

Incisors – 6-7 years
Lateral incisors – 8 years
Canine teeth – 10 years

Molars – 6 years
Old molars – 12 years

Before my child’s milk teeth fall out , always turned out to be female. What should I do?
In this case, the milk tooth may need to be extracted. Crooked permanent teeth can be corrected with orthodontic treatment. In such cases, it is important to get help from your doctor.

For damaged milk teeth, root canal treatment can be applied before extracting the milk tooth for the health of the permanent teeth.
The roots of milk teeth begin to dissolve as the permanent teeth below begin to emerge. The first teeth to change are usually the front teeth in the lower jaw, the permanent teeth begin to emerge behind the milk teeth in the tongue. It comes to the fore with the influence of the language. It loosens the milk tooth and dissolves its root; milk teeth fall out, this is a natural process; It does not cause confusion on its own. However, if the permanent teeth are properly placed in the mouth and the milk teeth remain in the mouth without shaking, then the milk teeth need to be extracted.
The more you can protect your child from harmful external factors, the more you can prevent his tooth from breaking. Especially during the primary education period, school and garden accidents occur frequently, and at that age, the erupted teeth in the mouth, especially the upper front teeth, are exposed to trauma. So much so that; Teeth may even come out of place in the jaw. In such a case, a dentist should be consulted immediately. Broken cuts can be kept in milk.
