PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY
SPECIALIZED DENTAL CARE FOR CHILDREN

WE ARE HERE FROM YOUR FIRST TOOTHBRUSH

Children can’t handle pain like most adults do, so our treatments for dental problems in children are planned accordingly, to protect your child from pain or discomfort during dental procedures.

Fillings: When cavities destroy small portions of the teeth, the affected areas have to be cleaned thoroughly and filled to reduce any further damage. For children’s teeth, we generally use glass ionomer, which is strong, durable and colour-matched to natural teeth. It also bonds with natural tooth enamel and helps to fill in gaps between uneven teeth.
Pulpotomy/ Pulpectomy :
The best treatment for cavities in a child’s tooth is pulpotomy if the infection hasn't reached the pulp and if it has then we opt for pulpectomy. To prevent further gum or tissue damage, a stainless steel crown is placed on the treated tooth. During this procedure, we educate the child on the long term problems and effects of tooth decay, as well as preventive measures for good oral hygiene.
Fluoride Application :
Fluoride plays a crucial role in preventing formation of cavities, especially for children. We encourage regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste. In cases where brushing alone is ineffective during the stages of permanent teeth development, fluoride may need to be applied either, topically or systemically twice a year to reduce the likelihood of cavities being formed.
Space Maintainer :
When milk teeth falls off, permanent teeth comes up to replace it. This happens in a proper chronologic sequence. However, if a milk tooth exfoliates prematurely with permanent tooth bud taking long time to form, the surrounding teeth can shift into the gap, causing problems in space orientation of  permanent teeth. Thus, the child would require orthodontic treatment later. Therefore, a space maintainer is used to maintain an empty space for the upcoming permanent tooth if the milk tooth has exfoliated prematurely. The space maintainer clip ensures sufficient space for permanent tooth and supports the surrounding teeth too.
