Pédodontie | Clinique dentaire Sana Oris Paris 8


Pedodontics is the speciality of dentistry dedicated to children. The term “paedodontics” is generally used for the 2 to 12 age group.

While prevention plays an extremely important role (mainly through cavity prevention), treatment is also essential, because children’s teeth are fragile and any pathology requires rapid treatment.

Your paediatric dentist may also refer you for surgical treatment. Clinique Dentaire Sana Oris works with a specialist orthodontist who is an expert in paediatric orthodontics and who provides screening consultations for children and adolescents under the age of 16.
Given the particular age range involved, we offer psychological support throughout the treatment.
Lastly, we have a full range of technical facilities, enabling us to treat patients of all ages.

What is pedodontics ?

Paediatric dentistry plays a crucial preventive role, as well as a therapeutic role when necessary.

Ideally, you should introduce your child to regular follow-up visits to a dentist at an early age. In paediatric dentistry, it’s essential to establish a relationship based on trust, gentleness and patience. The earlier this relationship is established, the better. We believe that this is essential for your child, so that any treatment is a non-traumatic experience.

Consulting a paediatric dentist is an opportunity for you to fully understand the specifics of paediatric dental hygiene, and for you and your child to master effective brushing techniques and good eating habits.

This consultation can lead to early detection of certain dental problems, including those linked to malocclusion. This would enable rapid referral to an expert orthodontist.

Through screening, paedodontics is able to prevent potential problems with phonation, swallowing and mastication. It focuses on correcting harmful habits such as thumb sucking , dummy use, unilateral chewing or swallowing that is still in its infancy. Pedodontics can also be used to identify any dental delays that may be altering a child’s dental alignment.

Why consult a paediatric dentist ?

Firstly, the role of a paediatric dentist is to make your child aware of the importance of oral hygiene. It’s important to note that baby teeth can be affected by cavities in the same way as adult teeth. That’s why, as soon as the first teeth appear, you need to get them into the habit of regular, appropriate brushing. We recommend brushing your child’s teeth twice a day with a soft brush and a suitable toothpaste. Your paediatric dentist will be able to show you the right way to do this, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Cavities, known as early childhood caries, can appear before the age of5. If your child’s enamel starts to lose its natural whiteness and become dull, this should be the reason for a pedodontic consultation. Preventing the appearance of tartar is essential: at Clinique Dentaire Sana Oris, our exclusive periodontists can explain how to take care of your child’s gums.

The presence of certain signs on clinical examination may lead your paedodontist to refer you for orthodontic treatment:

  • gaping and lack of contact between the teeth
  • Misalignment and overlapping of the teeth
  • Narrow jaw, deviation of the lower jaw
  • Breathing through the mouth

During a pedodontic consultation at Clinique Dentaire Sana Oris, understanding your child’s needs is the first step before any follow-up plan or therapeutic decision.

For example, a cavity needs to be treated quickly, because in children it can get worse very quickly. As well as being painful and affecting your child’s sleep, it can have an impact on dental growth,speech and language.

Orthodontic treatment depends on the child’s age and the initial problem.

During puberty, the specifics of the treatment differ, as growth needs to be taken into account. Your paediatrician can refer you to a specialist orthodontist.
