Best Dentist For Your Kid

We Love Working With Kids

There is a world of difference between adults and kids, and so is their dental care.

Early detection and treatment can go a long way toward keeping your child’s teeth healthy. We perform all the preventive, interception, and corrective treatments for children with smiles and care.

These include routine check-ups, treating decay, correcting irregular teeth, regular fluoride applications to prevent decay, and nutrition counseling.

Preventive Measures During Fluoride Application in Children: A child’s teeth are more prone to decay due to a lack of proper dexterity in brushing and due to their dietary habits.

Pit and fissure sealants: Pit and fissure sealants are preventive measures to seal the deep fissures of milk teeth and thereby prevent the penetration of fermentable sugars and the bacteria that lead to tooth decay.

Root Canal Treatment in Milk Teeth: In cases where tooth decay extends deep into the nerve portion of the tooth, it might be necessary to perform a root canal as described for the permanent tooth. It might still be considered a better alternative to tooth extraction as saving a milk tooth will not only improve chewing but also Milk teeth serve as a space maintainer for the proper spacing and alignment of the future permanent teeth.

Tooth Extraction

In a large number of patients, successful early treatment ensures that all permanent teeth get accommodated, and more often than not, there is no need to extract permanent teeth at a later stage to create space.

Broken/Chipped Teeth

Broken or chipped teeth may require specialized treatment, i.e., root canal treatment. Early orthodontic treatment corrects such teeth rapidly, thereby preventing permanent damage.

Bunny-Rabbit Appearance

This tremendous facial improvement is always accompanied by a wonderful personality change. Thus, there is not only a dental but also a mental advantage. These conditions go unnoticed if you wait till 12 years of age.

The Oral Habits

Thumb or Finger Sucking: Finger and thumb sucking is common in infancy and early childhood and, in the majority of cases, is spontaneously discontinued by about 5 years of age. In a minority of cases, however, the habit may continue for several more years, even into adolescence and beyond. The habit may produce deformity both of the finger/thumb and the dental occlusion.

Tongue Thrusting: Tongue thrusting, abnormal tongue position, and deviation from the normal swallowing pattern, tongue thrust is normal in infants until approximately the age of six months. If a child suffers from tongue thrusting, this continuous pressure tends to force the teeth out of alignment. Many children who have tongue thrust lead to open bites, the force of the tongue against the teeth is an important factor in contributing to “bad bite” (malocclusion).

Mouth Breathing: Mouth breathing has been classified according to etiology into three groups: obstructive, habitual, and anatomic. The nasal airway may be compromised partially or completely obstructed. Such individuals may find it difficult or impossible to breathe through their noses alone. In about 85% of cases, mouth breathing is an adaptation to nasal obstruction.
