Paediatric Dentistry

Paediatric dental care ensures your child's primary teeth stay healthy and free of decay and other dental diseases. Dentistry for children provides parents with a guide for oral care so that they will have excellent dental hygiene as they mature..

Fluoride Application
The benefits of fluoride in creating resistance to dental caries and reversing early dental decay in some cases during the formative years of the teeth is well documented. A systematic fluoride application programme is carried out for children at regular intervals as a preventive therapy. Keeping in mind the high carbohydrate diet children are exposed to, fluoride application is one of the most popular non- invasive treatment options available which has a high compliance rate as there is no drilling of the teeth. It is also helpful in getting a child accustomed to a dental chair.

Pit and Fissure Sealants
The anatomy of children’s teeth may sometimes work against them and make their teeth susceptible to dental decay. Sealants are used to make the pits and fissures on their teeth ‘shallow’ thereby preventing unnecessary lodgement of food and future tooth decay. This preventive measure goes a long way in ensuring that the the caries prone grinders remain decay free until it is time for the permanent teeth to erupt.

Single sitting procedures under General Anaesthesia / Conscious Sedation
In case of extensive procedures to be carried out in a child’s mouth or in case of an uncooperative child, the services of an anaesthetist might be required for administration of general anaesthesia. All the dental procedures are then carried out in that single sitting in the best interest of the child.

Proper Brushing Technique and Diet Counselling
Prevention is better than cure. This is an adage that holds true particularly in dentistry. We believe in not only treating the dental condition but also going a step further and educating our patients on preventive measures to ensure that they enjoy good dental health..

Our consultation is incomplete without awareness on preventive measures which include proper brushing and flossing technique and the ideal toothpaste and toothbrush for you. We educate patients on the correct time to discard a tooth brush and whether they need a fluoridated toothpaste or not.

Diet constitutes an important factor in the maintenance of good oral hygiene and dental health. Eating the right kind of foods not only keeps dental cavities at bay, but helps in maintaining your weight and overall health. We educate you on foods that are cariogenic and those that help prevent tooth decay and are good for the gums.
