Orthodontics for Kids
Pediatric dentistry deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental diseases (caries, bumps, gingivitis, etc). The Spanish Society of Pediatric Dentistry (S.E.O.P.) recommends that the first visit to the pediatric dentist should take place in the first year of life. A pediatric dentist is a dentist for children from infancy to beyond adolescence. During orthodontic treatments it is especially advisable to visit the pediatric dentist every six months for a dental check-up.

What is the recommended age for this visit?
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that the first visit to the Paediatric Dentist take place at the age of one. This makes it possible to monitor the correct emergence of the primary dentition and provide the parents with advice on early dental care. Check-ups are recommended every six months.
Up to what age will they treat a child?
Child patients are treated by the Paediatric Dentist until all of the permanent teeth have emerged (not including the wisdom teeth). This takes place around the age of14.
Are families aware of the importance of Paediatric Dentistry?
Collaboration between the Paediatrician-Paediatric Dentist is vital for parents to meet and visit the Paediatric Dentist on a regular basis.
More and more children, on the advice of their paediatricians, are making routine visits to receive preventive treatments (fluoride, sealants, cleanings, etc.), which helps maintain optimum oral health and avoids the dreaded cavities.
Is it necessary to visit the Paediatric Dentist during the orthodontics treatment?
During the orthodontics treatment, it is especially advisable to visit the paediatric dentist every six months for a dental check-up. Also, during this period, it is essential to comply with fluoride treatments and sealing of pits and cracks to keep enamel in good condition and free of cavities.
