We provide all possible dental treatments, for children.

1.WHAT ARE PIT AND FISSURE SEALANTS?

  • A sealant is a resin material that is applied to the pits and fissures of back teeth.

  • A sealant acts as a barrier, protecting the enamel from bacterial plaque in cavity prone areas.

  • Children are much more susceptible to tooth decay than adults and should have their back teeth sealed as soon as the teeth grow in fully.

  • Applying sealants is a quick, easy and painless procedure. They are painted on and bonded in place.

How does the pit and fissure sealants work?

Most often, chewing surfaces of the posterior teeth prone to more amount of decay. This is because these teeth have numerous pits and grooves on it. Even if a child brushes carefully, it is difficult to clean the small grooves and pits, which is present on these teeth. Food debris and bacterial products tend to accumulate on these surfaces making them more prone to decay. Pit and fissure sealants are material introduced to fill these grooves so as to resists the accumulation of food debris within it.

For how long do the sealants last?
Research shows that sealants can last for many years. If a child is capable of maintaining good oral hygiene and can avoid biting hard objects it can retain the sealants for a substantial amount of time.

2.Space Maintainer

What are Space Maintainers?                  
Space maintainers are small appliances which are either fixed or removable type, used to maintain space in the jaws if a milk tooth is lost or removed prematurely.

What are the advantages of having Space Maintainers?
Once Space maintainers are placed they prevent the adjacent tooth from moving into the space created by the premature loss of milk tooth. This in turn preserve the space for the permanent tooth as well as prevent malocclusions from developing. It has been estimated that 60% of malocclusion is because of premature loss of milk tooth and lack of space maintenance.

4.Pulpectomy

Also known as a “baby root canal.” This is a treatment done on a living baby tooth that has a cavity that extends to the inside of the tooth. Once a cavity reaches the inside of the tooth, the living part, the inside of the tooth becomes infected with bacteria and needs to be cleaned out. When we do this, we clean (or drill) out the cavity and make a hole into the inside of the tooth. All of the infected living tissue inside the tooth is then removed. The inside of the tooth is completely cleaned out and is now hollow. Medicine is then placed inside the tooth to help prevent infection and fill the empty space. A crown will then be placed on top of the tooth to help prevent further infection and to replace the tooth removed due to the cavities.


5.Fluoride Treatment


Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride Treatment is a safe and effective treatment for the prevention of cavities in children. Fluoride is a mineral that fortifies teeth and makes the teeth less susceptible to decay. Although we receive fluoride from food and water, professional fluoride treatments are sometimes necessary if there are pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of teeth or if the root surfaces are exposed or sensitive. Frequent intake of sugar and carbohydrate, inadequate saliva productions and insufficient fluoride intake also call for a professional fluoride treatment.

We use the latest proven technique for applying fluoride to your child's teeth without causing any risk. Contact us to know more.
