Pediatric dentistry takes care of children’s mouths, anticipates oral problems that may arise in adulthood and ensures years of healthy smiles.
Our specialist in pediatric dentistry makes the little ones forget they are at the dentist.
She stresses the importance of adapting the level of communication to each child: some children understand immediately and allow themselves to be guided, while others need more time or demonstrations.
The prevention and treatment of childhood caries, the prevention of malocclusions and the transmission of healthy eating patterns and the teaching of proper oral hygiene are key to children’s oral health.
Health professionals should be involved in the promotion and protection of breastfeeding, since breastfeeding is not only the optimal way to feed babies, but also offers protection against many diseases, both for the mother and the baby.
The WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months, and from this age onwards to continue breastfeeding, together with the introduction of complementary feeding, until at least 2 years of age.
However, only 2 out of 5 babies in the world continue to be exclusively breastfed at 6 months. The reasons for this are diverse, among them the loss of breastfeeding culture during the last decades.
That is why at MiravéCo we offer accompaniment and counseling, informative workshops and breastfeeding support groups. During breastfeeding counseling we assess all the factors that may be influencing breastfeeding; from posture and latch, baby’s oral cavity, medical history, birth factors; to family circumstances that may influence breastfeeding.
