This branch of science is divided into 2 basic basis. The first is to treat the problems that have occurred, to prevent problems that may occur and the second is to apply protective and preventive treatments.

Common Problems in Children
Caries, the main reasons for the occurrence of caries in children with honey and milk, baby food … for a long time as foods (especially at night) remains at the surface of teeth. In addition, inadequate brushing, unhealthy diet, carbonated soft drinks revenue. Rotten teeth cleaned and the filling is placed and remains at the mouth of the tooth in a healthy way.

Composite veneer can be applied in this case.

Extraction; milk or if it is always a draw will not remain in the mouth with the teeth to be treated. Milk teeth after taking the permanent teeth will come from the bottom.

Clean, removal is the process of plaque on the teeth. Especially in appointments to meet with the dentist is the first and get used to a dentist as a child and provides other treatments.

The importance of milk teeth
Milk teeth should be treated the same as in the permanent teeth. “What will change is!” the idea of ​​the withdrawal of the teeth can cause many problems. Milk teeth, he explained the importance of treatment, the importance of the diet are milk teeth. Rotten teeth, the teeth of children who can not eat properly for ağrıdığı. Meals taken in the teeth the same way, children grow and thrive for yiyemedikleri. In addition to the development of the general body is required for the development of milk teeth, jaws. Rotten teeth due to gum problems or crashes captured jaws in children and the elderly take a look. The teeth need to talk. Speech is learned in the pre-milk teeth are missing, especially f, v, s, z, t the letters came into the habit of a lifetime will lead to the wrong pronunciation.

Every child loves to laugh. If there is a need healthy teeth for a beautiful smile.
Every man’s natural desire to look beautiful large and small. Children who think they look ugly, rotten or missing teeth are uncomfortable psychologically. Milk teeth are replaced by permanent teeth from an other task is to protect the bottom. Imagine 10 children sitting side by side in a row. One of them is a shift towards a more comfortable when the others sit in his place. A new child come and sit in the order lifted, the others will have to be pinched. In the same way that the teeth on the right side of a milk tooth is pulled out prematurely sliding into the space. In permanent teeth do not come from the bottom. This thread compresses the others, occurs as a result, çapraşıklıklar. However, early extraction of primary teeth to permanent teeth revises periods of riding.

Baby bottle tooth decay in infants

Baby bottle tooth decay, especially in milk teeth of the upper jaw, together with continued into the front region of the incisor teeth “common rotten, rotten rapmant” also known as a special type of a bruise. Before going to bed at night or during sleep, the baby sucks the mother’s milk or a bottle (especially a bottle with sugar, bisküvili, milk, honey or molasses is given to the baby, and this process is repeated continuously, especially during the night), milk accumulates in the mouth creates a favorable environment for microbes to refute the teeth. In addition, the pacifier false honey, sugar makes the introduction of a more severe effect. During this period, the teeth enamel (the tooth’s outer layer) structure, and especially mothers to be more resistant to brush yet to begin “early” to think that as a result of poor oral hygiene, dental caries is a progressive type of baby bottle decay is very fast. Mothers often express this period takes place as soon as illicit. For these reasons, particular care should be taken at night cleaning the teeth after feeding. Nutrition or cheesecloth, then with the help of a buffer gas on the foods be removed and the teeth of infants may be diluted with water. Bottle at bedtime should not be left in the mouth.

School-age children with tooth-gum junction instead of the brush placed at 45 ° inclination of the rotation movement of the surfaces of the teeth appear, then the chewing surfaces of teeth brushing is recommended forward-backward movements.

Application of fluoride, tooth structure, strengthening the efficiency of today’s well-known article “fluoride” is observed. Fluoride to prevent tooth decay, an element that reinforces the structure of the teeth.

In which some, such as fluoride toothpastes is located in the foodstuffs.

In these regions and consequently the accumulation of microorganisms in food and a special fluid fillers are used in order to prevent decay. First of all, this area is fully cleaned and fissure sealants are applied to this area we call the fill fluid. Light and hardened and polished to correct any excess.

Periodontology is a branch of science that examines the surrounding tissues of the tooth (bone, gingiva, cementum, periodontal fibers). Periodontal disease is localized infections affecting the alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and gingiva, which are the supporting tissues of the teeth, and if they are not treated, they cause tooth loss. The basis of periodontal treatment is based on the mechanical removal of bacterial products (plaque-tartar).

They are used in anti-microbial drugs such as chemotherapeutic treatment methods, antiseptic agents, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics, which are applied in support of mechanical therapy. The drugs commonly used are tetracycline, metronidazole and chlorhexidine group drugs.

Gingival disease covers an area ranging from gingivitis to melting of the jaw bone and losing the supporting tissues of the teeth (periodontitis). In the gum disease, complaints such as swelling, reddening, bleeding, plaque and stone formation, gum recession, bad breath occur in the gum disease. You should definitely go to the dentist.

The most important cause of gum disease is the plaque accumulated on the tooth surface as a result of not regular and correct brushing and the tartar formed as a result of their calcification. If this layer is not cleaned, they form the beginning of gum problems.

Healthy Gum

Healthy gingiva is light pink in color, hard-cramped consistency, ending like a knife ridge at the junction with the tooth, its surface is in the appearance of an orange peel. The healthy gingiva wraps around the neck of the tooth like a collar and this is called a gingival groove. If there is bleeding, it means that there is a deterioration in gum health.

Tooth Stone

Tartar (tartar) is the hard layer formed by calcification of microbial dental plaque if it is not removed from the teeth. Proper brushing cannot be done in the areas where the tartar is present and causes the gum to recede as the accumulation continues.


It is a situation in which only the gingiva is affected among the periodontal tissues, and the hard tissues have not been damaged yet. In gingivitis, the gums are red and swollen, the gums on the surface have disappeared and the tissue has become shiny. There are bleeding during tooth brushing or spontaneous. Treatment; The problem can be solved with early diagnosis, plaque and tartar removal, regular brushing of the patient and the use of dental floss.


Chronic inflammation that started in the gingiva has now surrounded the alvepl bone and periodontal ligaments. Tissue destruction has begun in both soft tissue and hard tissue. Due to bone resorption, the gingival groove deepens and pathological gingival pocket occurs. Bad odor and bleeding gums are seen in the mouth. As a related gingival disease, sensitivity to cold-hot develops in the tooth. TREATMENT; The aim is to correct the damages in soft and hard tissues, to eliminate the pocket and to bring it back to the level where the patient can easily brush and clean. For this purpose, gingival pocket shallowing operation and correction of the alveolar bone are performed.
