Preventive dental care to complement check-ups by paediatricians
Information for paediatricians
Dear colleagues in and around Nuremberg!
Early childhood caries (ECC) is and remains a challenge. One that we would like to face in collaboration with you! You already do a great deal to ensure children’s best chance at a healthy life thanks to your U1 to U9 early detection check-ups. Unfortunately, however, the risk of ECC has not yet diminished. On the contrary, early childhood caries is now one of the most common chronic childhood diseases in Germany. In particular, the number of extreme cases with lots of affected teeth and a high degree of decay is rising among very small children. This is why we want to work actively with you to combat caries in (small) children in Nuremberg!
