Mom, it hurts a tooth?, ie once the problem already exists and is not forced to do something more aggressive treatment if the disease was detected early. This involves, usually, the child is reluctant to collaborate in the dentist’s office or take him fear, says Dr. Alberto Canábez . To avoid this, ideally early diagnosis, it is appropriate to the child starts going to ortopediatra (dentist specializing in the care of the dentition of the younger ones) with the first tooth, provided there is no urgent dental problem before any. From the first visit, the recommendation is to keep track of prevention, turning to ortopediatra every six months. These early meetings also serve to give parents some tips on oral hygiene and dietary guidelines to prevent cavities and other oral diseases of their children.
