The first dentist appointment is probably the most important one in a patient's life. In our practice, an absolutely atraumatic approach is applied to paediatric patients, and the utmost importance is given to prevention by implementing all recent World Health Organization protocols.
Fissure sealing of permanent first molars is an atraumatic very efficient method for primary prevention of dental caries. In the USA, it is compared to vaccination. Sealants and fluoride together can prevent almost all tooth decay. 5-6 year old children benefit most from this procedure 14 to 24 months after getting their first molars, but sealants may benefit young patients up to 10-11 years old. Second molars and premolars can also be sealed in the case of children at high risk of tooth decay.
Fractures of incisor teeth in children are a common paediatric pathology. New generation composite materials enable long-lasting and almost invisible restorations.
