We offer following dental services for children:
We offer services of best pedodontists in India trained at PGI and AIIMS, India.
Pediatric dentists have had special training, which allows them to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of children's' dental problems. They are trained and qualified to treat special patients who may have emotional, physical or mental handicaps. Because of this specialized training and commitment to comprehensive oral health, many parents wisely choose a pediatric dentist to treat their children.
Our clinic provides dental care for children in a delightful, fun dental atmosphere. Among the services provided by our pediatric dentist include fissure sealant, fluoride applications, space maintainers, tooth – colored fillings, stainless steel crown, and habit breaking appliances.
Dental Sealants or pit and fissure sealants, are made of a thin plastic material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth — premolars and molars. Dental sealants along with daily oral hygiene can keep your children's teeth free of tooth decay.
Why to use Dental Sealants
How do Dental Sealants work
Application of pit and fissure sealants
Dental sealants are easy for the pediatric dentist to apply, and painless for the child. After the tooth is cleaned and dried, the chewing surfaces are roughened with an etching solution or gel to help the sealant adhere to the tooth. After a few minutes the tooth is cleaned and dried again. Then the dental sealant is 'painted' on the tooth enamel and hardened with a special 'curing' light. It takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Dental sealants can last as long as five years and often longer.
Pit and fissure dental sealants should be applied soon after the molars have erupted, before the teeth have a chance to decay.
As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface could be almost 100% protected from tooth decay. During regular dental visits, your dentist will check the condition of the dental sealants and reapply them when necessary.
The use of pit and fissure dental sealants in combination with fluoride is the most cost-effective way to protect the teeth of children who are at higher risk for tooth decay.
Does the Process Hurt?
Sealants are easy and painless for your dentist to apply, and it only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth. As long as the sealant remains intact, the sealed tooth surface will be protected from decay. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and usually last several years. During your regular dental visits, your dentist will check the condition of the sealants and reapply them if necessary.
A child may loose a baby tooth prematurely (i.e. before it was supposed to fall out naturally). The reason for this is usually the dentist removes it because it is decayed or there is an abscess.
This early loss of a baby tooth may cause problems with the development of the permanent dentition.
The space in the dental arch for the successive permanent tooth may be lost causing a permanent tooth to become impacted.
To prevent the
development of these problems sometimes a space-maintainer is fitted.
There are a number of different designs of space maintainers to suit different
situations. They may be fixed or removable
Two types of crowns are available and can be used in children. The first is the stainless steel crown, which is used to restore a largely decayed primary molar, or a pulpally treated molar. The second is the cellulose crown and is used to restore an anteriorly decayed incisor.
