What treatments or activities are performed in Pediatric Dentistry?
Without doubt, the most common sets of treatments performed by pediatric dentists are focused on taking care of child & juvenile oral health. Among them, we can mention:
a) Prevention of dental caries.
b) Tooth decay treatment.
c) Dental trauma treatment.
d) Early orthodontic treatment.
Finally, it should be noted that there are many other aspects different between general dentistry and pediatric dentistry. For example, we should mention behaviour management of children in dental clinics. Undoubtedly, Dr. Boj is also a recognized professional in this field.
