It is very clear: children require different treatment and care to adults at the dentist. Our specially qualified children’s team at the Kronberg dental centre look after our young patients empathetically, and they undertake ongoing training to ensure this. Children will not feel worried about dental treatment - we make sure of that.

What are the differences between dentistry for children and adults?

In children’s dentistry we take account of the following: Children are not little adults. The treatment concepts are directed towards the anatomical and physiological characteristics of children. And of course, the mental development of the child is taken into consideration.

Children’s dentistry

What are the differences?

  • The child’s bite is developing and the skull is still growing. Children have milk teeth and only obtain their permanent teeth from the age of 6.
  • The psychological support in children’s dentistry is quite different to what is applied when treating adults.
  • An interest in oral hygiene can be encouraged more easily in children.

Milk teeth also have to be looked after.

There is a widely held view that decay is permissible in milk teeth as they will fall out anyway. However, milk teeth should also be looked after carefully. For the dental crown of permanent teeth can be damaged by decay in the milk teeth. If there is early loss of a milk tooth due to decay, the permanent tooth may break through the gum in a bad position meaning that orthodontic correction is required later on.

OUR ADVICEMake teeth brushing fun for your child. Care of the teeth then becomes a daily routine.

Do you have anyquestions on the topicof children’s dentistry?

You will find answers here on the most frequently asked questions on the topic of children’s dentistry. We will also be pleased to advise you personally at our dental practice in Kronberg im Taunus.

We advise coming in for their first check-up as soon as your baby’s first milk tooth has broken through. We then have the opportunity to identify the onset of tooth damage and decay risks at an early stage. We also give you tips on tooth care and tooth-friendly nutrition.

Statutory health insurance assumes the costs for the first dental early identification examination (FU 1) from the age of 30 months. This is often too late, because children aged 2-3 years may already have their first tooth decay. The second early identification examination (FU 2) follows between the ages of 49 and 72 months. After their sixth birthday, your child is entitled to individual preventative measures every six months.

Services such as dental examinations, checking oral health, teeth cleaning training, advice on the use of fluoride, enamel hardening with fluoride compounds at the practice and sealing of decay-free molars are paid for by health insurance.
