Desensitization is the slow, gradual, age-appropriate approach to the upcoming treatment.
A filling therapy may not only be necessary because of the nasty ‘caries devil’
If the ‘caries devils’ have been at work for some time – possibly unnoticed – the caries spread can already reach the tooth nerve – the so-called pulp of the milk tooth.
All teeth are professionally cleaned and then fluoridated. This is mainly to allow the child to slowly get used to the various instruments that we also need for any subsequent sessions.
At the beginning, the teeth are stained in order to make possible problem areas when brushing teeth visible to the patient and the parents ‘colorful on white’.
Especially in the posterior region / “with the molars” it can sometimes take up to the 13th year of life before the milk teeth are replaced by the permanent teeth.
If all teeth in the mouth are healthy, then it should stay that way. That is why it is very important to identify weaknesses at an early stage and to work on improvements.
The grooves and furrows on the occlusal surfaces of the molars – called ‘fissures’ in technical jargon – can be of relatively different types. It may therefore make sense to seal your teeth.
Dental anesthesia is a simple and gentle approach to making treatment easier for children in some situations.
In some cases children’s teeth need a bit of help by ‘wiggling’ the teeth out under a local anesthetic – i.e. extracting them.
After a root amputation or root filling, the milk tooth is usually significantly weakened by a large loss of substance, which is why a stainless steel crown – i.e. a ‘knight tooth’ or a ‘princess crown’ is recommended as a restoration.
For many parents, the first visit to the dentist is associated with many questions and sometimes with some discomfort – mostly because they have had bad experiences themselves. We would be happy to take the time to clarify questions and discuss all treatment options together.
How does the first treatment work in practice??
At the first appointment with us in the practice, there is usually no treatment. At this appointment, we get to know each other first, do a first examination of the children’s teeth, discuss any treatment options if necessary and clarify all questions from you.
What needs to be considered when visiting the dentist for the first time?
For many parents, the child’s first visit to the dentist is associated with many questions and sometimes with some discomfort – perhaps also because they themselves have had bad experiences. However, one should not forget that the little patient is still completely impartial here and so it is important that we convert this into a first positive experience in a dental environment. In this way, a cornerstone can be laid for later anxiety-free appointments. And so much in advance: Neither you nor the little patient need be afraid of the first appointment! Talk to your child well, look forward to your first visit to the dentist together and we will make every effort to ensure that you and your child feel well cared for and looked after.
In order to keep the bureaucratic effort as low as possible, it would be advantageous if the legal guardian or legal representative was present on the first visit.
If relevant X-rays have already been taken at another dentist or at the dental clinic, please bring them with you.
When should the first visit to the dentist take place??
Ideally, the first visit to the dentist should be made if there are still no problems or even pain. It is primarily about slowly getting your child familiar with the new environment and getting used to controls at the dentist. You will receive information as well as tips and tricks on important topics of oral health in order to provide your child with the best possible support from the very first milk teeth.
In short: after the first teeth break.
Why are fillings on milk teeth necessary when they fail??
Because milk teeth and permanent teeth are usually present in the mouth at the same time over a longer period of time – several years – and thus untreated tooth decay can also spread to the permanent teeth. The posterior milk molars only start to wobble at around 12 to 13 years of age, with late tooth it usually takes even longer.
How are the services billed??
This dental practice for children is an elective practice. This means that the services are not billed directly to your health insurance company, but that an invoice is issued in the form of a fee note after the treatment. With immediate payment – whether in cash or with an ATM – we take care of the submission to your health insurance. For transfers, you can also submit the fee note to your cash register yourself. In the case of cash benefits, these amounts are then partially refunded to your desired account. It is important that no copies are submitted, only original invoices.
How do the costs come about??
When pricing, we adhere to the currently valid version of the ‘Autonomous Fee Guidelines’. These are published regularly by the Austrian Dental Association. A notice with all details can also be found in the practice premises, as well as online on the website of the Austrian Dental Association.
