Pediatric dentistry

Pediatric dentist Gdansk

Dental prophylaxis and treatment of the youngest patients is sometimes demanding, but there is no doubt that it is particularly important. Already at this stage of the child’s life, care should be taken to develop proper habits and care for general oral hygiene, especially since certain ailments of deciduous teeth are easily transferred to permanent teeth.

Why choose us?

We often treat young patients in our dental office. We know that although they require a completely different approach than adults, taking care of the condition of milk teeth should be treated with equal commitment.

  • Our dentists specialize in pediatric dentistry and have great contact with younger patients. Thanks to that the appointment takes place in a pleasant atmosphere, but at the same time is completely professional.
  • We focus on child-friendly solutions. In the dentist’s office, children can even choose colored fillings, thanks to which young patients can forget about the stress that accompanies them during the visit. For the same purpose, we carry out so-called ‘adaptive visits’.
  • Among our dentists, there are several specialists in oral diseases of developmental age. Their experience allows them to particularly efficiently recognize, diagnose and treat teeth attacked by caries or early stages of gingivitis.
  • During the visit, we prepare the little patient to care for their oral hygiene themselves. Thanks to that, the first visit can result in creating long-term positive habits.

We also realize that parents have higher expectations from the dentist when it is their children who are sitting in the dental chair. The dentist conducting the treatment will ensure to clarify all doubts and answer the questions of both the young patient and the caregivers.

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry and developmental dentistry is a dentistry specialty dealing with the prevention and treatment of dental and oral diseases in children and adolescents. Some aspects remain the same when it comes to deciduous and permanent teeth, but some procedures are modified accordingly. In addition, the age and level of skeletal development may limit the use of some solutions that are available for adults.

Pediatric dentists aim to prevent caries and gum disease, and conduct conservative treatment of younger patients, but also to cooperate with orthodontists or, if necessary, dental surgery specialists. Regular check-ups, hygienization procedures, and conservative treatment are just as important as the influence of the dentist on the formation of appropriate habits in young patients.

Why use the services of a pediatric dentist?

The pediatric dentist is a specific specialist. In addition to the fact that they must have the highest level of education, extensive experience, and be able to also conduct treatment in unusual cases, they should also have good contact with young patients.

  • The child can start developing appropriate hygiene habits from the first contact with the dentist. It is important because not all established routines are correct. Often just one visit can affect how the patient will take care of their oral health throughout their whole life.
  • Some diseases, including tooth decay, can spread from milk teeth to permanent teeth. Failure to treat them at a young age means more visits at a later age. It also usually results in a higher degree of complexity of treatment.
  • It is still relatively easy to shape children’s smile lines, so the pediatric dentist can offer not only dental sealants and teeth varnishing but also suggest orthodontic treatment that should bring quick and visible results.

In short, by visiting a dental office with a child, caregivers make sure that their children have fewer dental health problems at a later time. Prevention is better than cure, and if it is too late for prevention, it is worth starting treatment as soon as possible.

Our services in the field of pediatric dentistry

We take the oral health of young patients very seriously. We offer a full range of services that will take care of the health of permanent and deciduous teeth.

  • Regular follow-up visits. The course of the follow-up visit is always dependent on previous treatment, but every case is about appropriate prophylaxis and early detection of symptoms of dental diseases.
  • Hygienization: dental sealants, scaling, fluoridation, and tooth varnishing can protect against tooth decay and make it easier to treat a disease when it occurs, which usually results in a simpler and shorter treatment.
  • Conservative dentistry. The pediatric dentist undertakes treatment of both deciduous and permanent teeth, ensuring that the young patient can fully use their set of teeth for as long as possible.
  • Deciduous or permanent teeth extraction. This is a procedure that instills some fear in children, but a good doctor can use certain types of anesthesia to reduce the patient’s discomfort. Teeth extraction is a procedure performed when conservative dentistry is no longer able to help, milk teeth interfere with the process of eruption of permanent teeth or as a last resort (when it is necessary, for example, for orthodontic correction).

As a rule, the same dental procedures are carried out in the case of the youngest patients and the case of adults. Of course, the equipment used differs. You also need to take special care of the friendly atmosphere during the appointment, but, as a rule, the goals of dentists are the same: to provide the patient with the greatest comfort and to take care of the child’s oral health.

When is it worth using the services of a pediatric dentist?

The list of indications for an appointment in the case of children does not differ much from the list of reasons that should also encourage adults to visit the dentist.

  • First of all, regular examinations, checks, and hygienization procedures should be performed as an important element of dental prophylaxis.
  • You should take your child to the dentist if there are discolorations, spots, or beginnings of caries on the teeth.
  • When there are signs that may indicate the initial stages of gum disease.
  • When the abnormal process of eruption of deciduous or permanent teeth occurs.
  • When the child complains of toothaches, tooth hypersensitivity, or discomfort occurring when chewing food.

It is better to come to the dentist with your child and hear that everything is in order and they just need to get dental sealing, than to postpone the visit until the treatment of caries outbreaks requires a longer appointment.

Our dental center employs great specialists in the field of pediatric dentistry. We encourage all parents to arrange an initial or subsequent appointment. We will conduct a full review, hygienization, and conservative treatment and refer the child to an orthodontist if necessary. We guarantee to maintain the same level of professionalism as we do with parents and an atmosphere that will suit young patients.


It is worth starting with a so-called ‘adaptive appointment’. No treatments causing possible discomfort are performed during such an appointment. We make sure that young patients feel as comfortable as possible. Certainly, the first visit, the second one at most, will allow them to get used to the dental office.

Usually, the first appointment is carried out after the first tooth has erupted. Sometimes an earlier appointment is necessary if, for example, there are some disease symptoms or prolonged problems with teething. It is certainly not worth delaying it for too long.

Milk teeth should be checked every 3 months, then the intervals between visits are slightly longer. It is always a good idea to discuss this with your dentist, as the time between visits will also depend on your child’s oral health.

Firstly, their diseases are as harmful to the child as diseases of permanent teeth and can also result in dangerous complications. In addition, permanent teeth can become infected with caries from deciduous teeth.

Usually between the ages of 5-6 and 13, but it is worth remembering that this is an individual matter and the numbers are not as regular as clockwork.

All complications that are associated with untreated caries can also affect the youngest patients. Caries from deciduous teeth easily spreads to permanent teeth and become more difficult to treat.

The key is brushing with the right technique, rinsing the mouth with boiled water, and regular preventive appointments. Do not use aggressive toothpaste, alcohol rinses, or medications that adults can sometimes use on their own accord without consulting the dentist.
