Project Description

Pedodontics, or pediatric dentistry, is the dental department dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence. At Luongo Studio in Rome, we not only focus on the prevention and treatment of dental diseases in young patients but also strive to create a welcoming and reassuring environment that helps children develop a positive perception of dentists.

Why is Pedodontics Important?

Good oral health in the early years is crucial to prevent cavities and gum diseases, which can affect not only dental health but also the overall well-being of the child. Moreover, positive experiences with pediatric dentistry can encourage good oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.

What treatments are reserved for children?

Prevention: Includes professional teeth cleaning, application of dental sealants, and fluoride treatments aimed at protecting teeth from cavities.

Oral Hygiene Education: Teaching age-appropriate brushing and flossing techniques.

Pediatric and Myofunctional Orthodontics: Evaluation of dental development and early detection of potential issues, such as tooth crowding or malocclusion. Early intervention can help avoid more costly treatments in the future.

Conservative and Restorative Treatments: Treatment of cavities, dental trauma, and other childhood-specific conditions with minimally invasive approaches.


Absolutely, they need to be treated. Having well-preserved and healthy baby teeth is essential for a child’s proper chewing. Baby teeth must remain in place for the necessary time to allow the permanent teeth, which will replace them, to grow in properly.

From the time the child is able to understand and try to reproduce the actions. This will help them become familiar with toothpaste, toothbrushes, and the correct oral hygiene techniques.

A child should be taken to the dentist at the age of 5 or 6, which is when the eruption of permanent teeth begins. However, it may sometimes be necessary to have a consultation at an earlier age.


Very often, dental misalignment is not just an aesthetic problem but can also cause very painful conditions in other areas such as the neck, back, legs, etc. It is essential to consult a specialist who has close relationships with ENT specialists, orthopedists, osteopaths, and physiotherapists to perform a proper diagnosis and implement a multidisciplinary program.
