Pediatric Dentistry is the branch of dentistry that specializes in taking care of oral health in infants through childhood and adolescence. The primary dentition also known as baby teeth or milk teeth are the first set of teeth to erupt into the oral cavity and play a vital role in the growth and development of an individual.
Early care of all gum and teeth-related diseases to maintain the primary teeth in good condition until they are shed off and their permanent successor teeth erupt in place is of prime importance.
The primary teeth play several roles in a child's development from infant to adulthood. By maintaining the optimal space in the mouth needed to form permanent dentition, helping children cut, chew, and break down food boluses into smaller pieces to promote better digestion of food and absorption of essential nutrients. Therefore every individual's overall growth and development is assisted by the management of a good set of primary dentitions.
The treatment procedures performed on primary dentition are often similar to those on permanent teeth and includes a wide range of restorative, aesthetic and preventive management methodologies.
