Children’s Dentistry

Dental problems affect all ages - infants, children and adults. If   left   untreated,   they   can   affect   the   normal   growth   and   development   of the child and may lead to dental disability   At our clinics we offer the following dental services for children :

Paediatric dental counselling

Milk   teeth   begin   to   erupt   by   6   months   of   age,   rarely,   they   can   even   be present   at   birth.   Most   parents   are   ignorant   about   the   importance   of   milk teeth and how to take proper care of them. Dental   neglect    is   the   wilful   failure   of   the   parent   or   guardian   to   seek   and follow    through    with    necessary    dental    treatment    and    it    can    have physical,     mental     and     emotional     effects     on     the     child.     Learning, communication, nutrition - all can be affected.   The   American   Academy   of   Pediatric   Dentistry    recommends   that   a child’s   first   dental   visit   be   at   the   time   of   eruption   of   the   first   tooth,   and no   later   than   the   12   months   of   age.   You   can   read   the   full   guideline here. Pediatric   dental   counselling   includes   sessions   not   only   on   diet,   nursing, oral   hygiene,   habit   (thumb   sucking   etc.)   and   dental   sports   injuries,   but also involves clinical evaluation and risk assessment of the child.   

Paediatric fillings & root canal treatments

Children   behave   differently   than   adults,   and   it   gets   difficult   for   them   to remain    patient    for    a    long    time.    Treatment    of    children    may    involve multiple short visits. They require special attention, materials and techniques. Materials    used    at    our    clinic    for    children    include    Glass    Ionomer Cements, Resin Modified Glass Ionomers and Composites.  Pediatric   Root   Canal Treatments      for   children   may   also   differ   somewhat from   what   is   carried   out   in   adults   in   terms   of   technique,   materials   and treatment objectives. Special     cases     include     root     canal     treatments,     wherein     there     is incomplete formation of the root with a wide open apex.

Stainless steel crowns

At   our   clinics,   we   use   stainless   crowns   made   by   3M   ESPE.   Placing them is a painless procedure. These    are    extremely    durable,    pre-fabricated    crowns    made    out    of stainless steel, that can be easily adjusted for use on milk teeth. These   are   primarily   used   after   a   root   canal   treatment   on   milk   teeth and/or   on   milk   teeth   with   defects   wherein   a   filling   is   not   likely   to   stay. They   help   in   maintaining   proper   chewing   function   and   space   for   the permanent tooth. When   the   milk   tooth   falls   off   naturally   with   age,   these   crowns   also   fall off with them.

Space maintainers

If   a   milk   tooth   is   pre-maturely   lost,   then   there   is   a   greater   danger   of   the adjacent   teeth   moving   into   the   open   space   and   blocking   the   way   for   the permanent tooth later on. This   is   easily   prevented   by   a   space   maintainer.   These   are   painless   and help   maintain   the   space   for   the   permanent   tooth   to   erupt   into.   Once   the permanent tooth erupts, they are removed. These   can   be   fabricated   in   different   designs   depending   on   the   clinical situation. The most common design is the simple band and loop. Placing space maintainers is a painless procedure. Click here  to read more about space maintainers.

Sealants

These   are   thin,   flowable   dental   materials   that   are   used   to   seal   out   the grooves   on   the   tooth   surface.   These   grooves   on   a   newly   erupted   tooth can be deep and narrow. The     toothbrush     does     not     reach     deep     into     these     grooves     and accumulation food can lead to cavities.  Sealing    blocks    out    food    accumulation    in    the    groove,    and    prevents cavities. Placing sealants is a painless procedure. Click here  to read more about sealants.

Topical Fluoride applications

Topical   Fluoride   applications   in   children   is   also   a   preventive   treatment that   is   not   only   painless,   but   takes   just   one   minute,   and   goes   a   long way to prevent tooth cavities. A   fluoride   gel   is   placed   in   soft   mouth   shaped   trays,   and   placed   on   the child’s teeth for a minute and then removed.
