PAEDIATRICIAN – MADRID
Children's Dental Clinic In Madrid
The care of the teeth begins from the first appearance of the same. At the Ruiz de Gopegui Dental Clinic we think it is essential to teach children to take care of their mouths from the time they can remember. And it is that the mouth has memory, and the habits that they adopt in the initial ages will interfere with their future oral health. In our dental clinic, the little ones in the house also have an area specially dedicated to them, pediatric dentistry.
This is the part of dentistry that is responsible for the care, maintenance and prevention of the child’s dental health from childhood to adolescence. At the Ruiz de Gopegui children’s dental clinic in Madrid we want to accompany you at every stage of your life. For this reason, we also watch over the mouths of children. Another fundamental task that the specialists of our clinic adopt in this area is to provide useful advice to parents. Each patient is unique and special to us, which is why we treat each case in a strictly personalized manner. Because we know that your children are the most important thing, we dedicate all our efforts to make them feel at home.

When To Start Visiting The Pediatric Dentist?
It is very important to accustom the little ones to visits to the dental clinic with the pediatric dentist. At our Ruiz de Gopegui Dental Clinic we have verified that most children who come to the consultations for check-ups from a very young age become good patients in the future. This is because they already know our team, they perceive it as something normal and they are willing to collaborate. They also have better oral health habits and better monitoring of both general oral pathologies and orthodontics .
On the other hand, when children arrive for the first time at older ages and due to a problem and with pain, care becomes more complicated. For this reason, we recommend that visits to the pediatric dentist begin early, even if there are no apparent problems. The Spanish Society of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first visit to the pediatric dentist be made, at the latest, when the child is two years old. It is the age at which the eruption of the twenty teeth that make up the first dentition has generally been completed. However, the first review should be done when the first tooth comes out, or what is the same, between 6 and 12 months of age.
The Pediatric Dentist Monitors At Each Stage
At our Ruiz de Gopegui dental clinic, our pediatric dentist accompanies your child at each stage. We start taking care of them since they are babies and their first teeth begin to appear. From 0 to 6 years old , we carry out check-ups and treatments for the little ones. At this stage, we monitor the baby’s dental health and hygiene and advise parents so they know how to do it at home. We also inform about the oral habits of babies that should be avoided such as pacifier or thumb sucking, and we try to correct them.
The second stage, as far as oral health is concerned, ranges from 6 to 12 years of age . During this period our follow-up is based on carrying out the same reviews and treatments, but adapting to the age, situation and habits that the child has acquired up to now. In addition, it is at this stage when we begin to place the first orthodontics for children and we carry out preventions such as fluoridation and sealing.
In the case of adolescents , pediatric dentistry treatments cover up to approximately 16 years of age, at which time they are treated by the same specialists as adults. During adolescence, most orthodontics are placed and their respective follow-up is done. Our dentists will be in charge of carrying out this type of treatment.
Prevention, The Key To The Pediatric Dentist
At our Ruiz de Gopegui Dental Clinic we defend that prevention is the best treatment, and in the case of children even more so. For this reason, our pediatric dentist is trained in child prevention programs, which include clinical and home measures to ensure a happy smile for your child. The objective of preventive pediatric dentistry is for your child to have a healthy smile and to avoid more aggressive and expensive treatments in the future. Children with healthy mouths chew more easily. In addition, they learn to speak faster and better. In general they have better overall health since oral diseases can harm the rest of the body.
The treatments that are implemented in preventive dentistry to help care for the teeth of any oral disease are:
- professional teeth cleaning
- fluoride application
- tooth brushing technique
- Use of mouthwashes
At the Ruiz de Gopegui Dental Clinic , we have a coordinated professional team consisting of a pediatric dentist and an orthodontist , who have exclusive training to design pediatric treatments. We have orthodontic specialists through whose hands countless patients have been able to improve their smiles, thanks to the expertise and personal planning of our orthodontic team.
Children ‘s orthodontics is key to providing children’s smiles with high quality. Dental alignment, correct bite, and oral health are essential in every custom-designed dental procedure. The infant stage allows us to plan high-quality and truly positive protocols, since in the growth phase it is much easier to guide dental movements successfully.
