Pediatric Dentistry (Pedodontics) is the field of dentistry that deals with the oral and dental health of children between the ages of 0-16. At Dent Hippocrates Oral and Dental Health Clinic, our aim is to create a positive and warm experience for children from the first visit. We know how important it is to ensure that every child is comfortable during their dental treatment. We ensure that your child feels safe and does not fear the dentist. Our priority is to put children at ease and instill lifelong confidence in visiting the dentist.

Pediatric Dentistry Recommendations
Pediatric Dentistry covers 3 different periods.
0-6 years: Deciduous Period:
Milk teeth are important to maintain their place until permanent teeth erupt. While the teeth continue their formation in the jaw, they last at certain ages according to their root development. During this period, a total of 20 milk teeth (10 in the lower and 10 in the upper jaw) are placed symmetrically.
6-12 Age Period:
It is the age range in which both milk molars and incisors are seen in the mouth at the same time.
After 12 Years of Age:
This is the period when milk teeth are completely shed, permanent teeth take their place in the mouth and the balance between teeth is formed
Our patients who are completed in our dental treatment clinic are checked regularly. Superficial fluoride and fissure sealant procedures are among the preventive dentistry applications. In our Dent Hippocrates Dental Clinic, we recommend periodic repetition of dental caries prevention practices..
