Your Child’s First Visit
Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around their first birthday. One of the most important reasons of this visit is to familiarize your child with the dental office environment and to ease any anxiety associated with future visits. During this time the dentist can examine your child’s dental development and address dental issues such as baby bottle decay, or any teething tenderness while providing preventive care when needed.
On this first visit, a gentle but thorough examination will be performed to monitor growth and development and address any problem areas. Early examination provides your child with preventive dental care while establishing healthy dental habits at an early age. Ensure that your child’s future smile is a healthy, confident one.
How do I prevent CAVITIES?
A sealant is a tooth-colored material that is applied to the chewing surfaces (grooves) of the back teeth, where 4-out-of-5 cavities are found in children. This sealant acts as a barrier to food, plaque and acid, protecting decay-prone areas of the teeth. Sealants have been used for many years to help prevent biting surface cavities. No numbing is necessary.
Fluoride treatment helps to strengthen teeth against decay. Fluoride treatments are typically recommended every 6 months to help strengthen any weak areas of the teeth and help prevent cavities.
Injuries can occur when a child begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports like cricket, football, basketball. Custom made mouth guards can be fabricated for your child. In addition to preventing injuries to teeth, they help prevent brain injuries and trauma to the gums, jaws, and surrounding tissues.
Cavities and repaired with tooth colored fillings to prevent further progression of decay and to protect the integrity of the tooth.
Both Zirconia and stainless steel crowns incase decay involves more than one surface of the tooth.
SPACE MANAGEMENT :
Milk teeth are very important to hold the bone and create a pathway for the permanent teeth to erupt correctly. If milk teeth are lost prematurely its Space should be maintained to ensure uninterrupted eruption of the permanent tooth, failing which crowding occurs and the natural tooth alignment is hampered to a great extent. We believe in and deliver Space Maintainers wherever required pertaining to the individual child’s needs. A space maintainer is an appliance that is custom-made in acrylic or metal material. It can be either removable or cemented in a child’s mouth. Its purpose is to keep the space open to allow the permanent tooth to erupt and come into place.
If tooth decay begins to involve the nerves the child will start complaining of pain. Such teeth are routinely treated with a root canal followed by a crown. The material used in root is compatible with the child’s tooth and dissolves along with the tooth with age.
Teeth removal is done when needed. We will extract primary and permanent teeth when needed.
We also provide support for trauma involving the mouth including avulsed (knocked out), loosened and fractured teeth.
We are confident that you and your children will feel right at home in our caring,
comfortable, and friendly office. Come visit us and make it your child’s ‘Dental Home’
