Maintaining your child’s oral health allows us to protect even their baby teeth from potential decay.


Your child will feel calm and secure during their appointment, put at ease without the use of any medication or sedatives.

When should you take your child to the dentist? Is it really worth them seeing a specialist, knowing that they’ll lose their baby teeth?

Subconsciously, parents often think the best time to take their children to the dentist is once they have lost their baby teeth. Keeping tabs on your child’s oral health will help you prevent problems and save money in the long run.

Did you know that periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss?

Most children that we treat between the ages of 8 and 10 find themselves with decaying teeth and, consequently, frequent bouts of toothache. This happens because most parents wait for all the milk teeth to fall out of their child’s mouth before taking them for a check-up. However, these teeth do not fall out simultaneously, and most have already been replaced by fully-grown teeth. Without regular check-ups with a specialist, over time, after the first few baby teeth have already fallen out, the permanent teeth begin to hurt. Because of this, children are conditioned to be afraid of the dentist, who is forced to intervene before the situation can worsen. This is why so many adults – perhaps even you – are afraid of the dentist, with appointments causing great deals of stress and anxiety. It’s likely that, as a child, you experienced this trauma, and associate pain with a trip to the dentist. A negative memory like this will inevitably affect the patient, who overlooks their oral health in order to avoid suffering. This, in turn, means that they will only visit the dentist when the situation is incredibly compromised.

By educating your child and treating their teeth from a young age, you’ll help them feel calm during visits to the dentist, accompanied by a smile through the various stages of their life.

So is there no way to look after our children’s oral health without causing them stress and anxiety at the thought of a trip to the dentist?


We are Michela, Simone and Francesco; welcome to Kravos & Guadagno dental practice! We’re a multidisciplinary practice offering professional, modern services which aid your oral health.

To us, children are not only a blank page (onto which it’s essential to consider what should be written) but a FUTURE.

Throughout the course of our careers, we’ve noticed that most children between the ages of 8 and 10 who come for an appointment already had a mouth full of cavities and a deep-rooted fear of the dentist, caused by negative experiences.

We’re parents, too, always hoping to see children happy and healthy. That’s why we wanted to dedicate ourselves particularly to the PREVENTION of even the youngest patient’s oral health, in order to:

  • – Help them feel calm during appointments
  • – Follow them through the various stages of maturation, helping to avoid any problems developing in the future
  • – Teach them how to properly clean their teeth.
  • – Prepare them for the arrival of their “grown-up teeth”.

To achieve this, we collaborate with a specialist pediatric dentist.


Our entire team approaches children’s dental appointments with a sense of calm.

Hear what our littlest patients have to say!

You may now be thinking

“but each child is different. Mine is a real handful; how can I make them feel comfortable?”

Because we care about both the relationship we form with our younger patients and the fact that the child’s wellbeing comes before any dental treatment we carry out, Kravos & Guadagno have chosen never to use any anesthetics or gas on children. Instead, we’ve chosen to make full use of our staff’s expertise; this allows us to calm even the most difficult of children, letting them participate in their treatment and making them aware of what will happen. We allow the children to treat our appointments as a game.

    How old should my child be for their first dentist’s appointment?

    According to the Clinical Recommendations from the Ministry of Health “we recommend the first dental appointment be carried out between 18 and 24 months, regardless of any potential dental problems.”

    >>> Don’t wait for your child to experience pain or issues with their teeth before taking them to the dentist. It’s best for children to get used to the dentist from a young age, to build their confidence with healthcare professionals. This will make their experience at the dentist pleasant rather than traumatic, forming a collaborative and trust-based relationship between our experts and our littlest patients!

    Should baby teeth undergo treatment?

    Absolutely. Baby or “milk” teeth can develop tooth decay and should be treated! Baby teeth contain an ample pulp chamber with a thin layer of enamel. Because of this, tooth decay can progress quickly and cause a lot of pain in a short amount of time. In addition to aesthetic and functional damage, if these issues remain untreated, tooth decay in baby teeth can lead to significant problems in adult teeth and throughout the entire mouth of the patient.

    >>> It’s essential not to overlook the oral hygiene and treatment of baby teeth!

    What are dental sealants?

    Dental sealants are a means of preventing tooth decay which consist in closing over the ridges and grooves on the chewing (occlusal) surface of the back teeth in order to create a physical barrier which protects against destructive and bacterial agents. The occlusal surfaces of the back teeth are at the highest risk of tooth decay: it is estimated that around 80% of cavities in patients between 5 and 17 years of age occur in these positions.

    >>> Dental sealants are particularly recommended for the first permanent molars which come through for children between 6 and 7 years of age, either on newly emergent teeth or existing adult teeth. Treatment and susceptibility will vary based on the oral health of each patient!
