Abstract

  Hospital Dentistry is a dental specialty that aims to perform oral care and procedures in the hospital environment. Child hospitalization is considered a traumatic experience that leads the child to different feelings, such as anguish, anxiety and fear. The child will have to deal with different and noisy environments, lights, constant routine procedures, exposing him to great stress. The dentist's role in this context becomes very important, being part of the multidisciplinary team. The dentist, in the condition of examining children in a hospital environment, verifies the real need and the best opportunity to intervene in the oral cavity in order to maintain their healthy clinical condition as a whole. General health may be at risk if oral health is compromised, which can interfere with the recovery process. Treatment should include all dental specialties, considering a patient's clinical condition. The patient can be submitted to emergency procedures in the case of trauma and preventive procedures when the systemic condition worsens or is not affected by hospital infection.
