We perform Smile Design for all our patients.


First of all, you have to know what exactly is a children’s dentist. Basically a dentist is that professional in the world of dentistry that is responsible for taking care of the dental health of children, a very peculiar and special type of patient.

The vast majority of functions of a children’s dentist is usually related to orthodontics in Torremolinos, since it is essential to correct as soon as possible the correct position of the teeth of the smallest of the house.

Below you can learn about each and every one of the functions that a pediatric dentistry clinic must fulfill.


The ideal is to take your child to a children’s dentist when he/she reaches the age of one, this is always recommended. In the past, it was customary to take your child to the dentist when he/she turned 3 years of age, which was when the baby teeth had already erupted.

It is important to see a dentist the younger the child is, since with the appearance of the baby teeth the first dental problems usually appear, such as incorrect jaw growth, the absence of certain teeth or the child’s own bite.

During this first visit to a children’s dental clinic what is essential is that the child loses the fear of the dentist and begins to become familiar with a Children’s Dental Clinic.

In addition, the pediatric dentist will provide parents with the guidelines to follow so that the child has optimal oral health.

It is also essential at this stage to have a healthy diet, which is often closely related to any type of dental pathology that the child may have.


Baby teeth are essential for our children to be able to eat correctly, to chew and even to be able to begin to speak correctly. Although the primary function of the milk teeth is none other than that they are able to maintain the space for the later appearance of the permanent teeth, both in the lower and upper arches.

Here is how the 28 baby teeth appear:

  • First is the appearance of the lower central incisor teeth.
  • Upper central incisors
  • Upper lateral incisors.
  • Lower lateral incisors.
  • Molar teeth appear.
  • The fangs


This milk dentition usually ends when the child reaches approximately 2 and a half years of age.


A pediatric dentist always fulfills a series of functions and tasks that we will detail in more depth, within our pediatric dentistry service. These are usually the most common children’s dental problems.


It is, unfortunately, all too normal the appearance of infant caries, also known as baby bottle tooth decay. That is why it is essential to go to a Dental Clinic to treat them as soon as they appear or to prevent their appearance with proper dental hygiene.

type disorders

This kind of dental alterations affect both the size of the teeth and their shape. They directly affect the non-appearance of the first teeth, also called anodontia. It can also happen that not all the milk teeth that should appear or that there are more teeth than normal among other cases.


We already know that children do not stand still and it can be more than normal to go to a dentist for children when the child suffers a dental trauma for whatever reason.

any type
of malocclusion

They directly affect the child’s bite and may result in having to undergo a type of orthodontic treatment for children.


It happens when a certain part of the pulp of the permanent teeth has to be removed.


It refers to the total and absolute removal of the dental pulp of the permanent dentition.

These are just some of the functions that children’s dentists have. So now you know, if you need to take your child to a Pediatric Dental Clinic, at MEDIDENT Torremolinos we always offer the best services.
