Paedodontics
Paedodontics is the branch of dentistry that specialises in the care and management of children’s teeth. Also known as paediatric dentistry, it treats patients from birth until adolescence.

Its goal is to care for children’s teeth and educate patients on proper dental hygiene and maintenance for their young children. The success of paediatric dentistry lies in early oral examinations that can lead to early detection of dental problems, which can help prevent major and lasting damage to children’s teeth.

Patients who should undergo paedodontic treatment include all young children, including infants, toddlers, and adolescents. The scope of treatment differs depending on the age of the patient.
