Child Dental Care

Child Dental Care / Periodontics Dentistry

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.


The very young, pre-teens and teenagers all need a different approach in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.


Sealants are primarily a preventive treatment for the permanent teeth, not the milk or baby teeth. The first permanent teeth emerge between five and seven years of age. Another set comes about six years later. Teeth sealants last longer than four years for more than half of the children and young people who have them done. During this time the risk of cavities in the sealed teeth is about halved. The resins applied as sealants these days are generally believed to be reasonably safe.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments commonly are given to children as their teeth are developing. If your child has a history of cavities or is at high risk of decay, he or she should use additional fluoride to promote remineralization. Often, children get fluoride treatments every six months for extra protection against cavities, even if they already drink fluoridated water.

Space Maintainer

Baby teeth (we call them primary or deciduous teeth) aren’t just for chewing. Each one also acts as a guide for the permanent tooth that replaces it. If a primary tooth is lost too early, the permanent tooth loses its guide and can drift or erupt incorrectly into the mouth. Neighboring teeth also can move or tilt into space, so the permanent tooth can’t come in.

A space maintainer is made of stainless steel and/or plastic. It can be removable, or your dentist can cement it in your child’s mouth (called a fixed space maintainer). A removable space maintainer looks like a retainer. It uses artificial teeth or acrylic blocks to fill in space or spaces that need to be maintained. This type of space maintainer often is used when space is obvious to other people. Removable space maintainers work well in older children who can reliably follow directions about caring for this appliance.



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.


Orthodontic Treatments

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening and correcting the tooth alignment and the dental specialist who does this is called an “Orthodontist”.


Generally, the first Orthodontic consultation with a qualified Orthodontist should be done when the child’s first permanent incisors, usually lower central incisors, start erupting in the mouth i.e. at the age of about 7 years. After the complete evaluation of your child, the Orthodontist may suggest beginning with early Orthodontic treatment.


We offer simple and innovative plans to prevent children undergoing complicated procedures. Fixed appliances techniques available for children and adults from eminent orthodontists.

Advantages Of Treatment

A fear of the dentist is quite common, so going to the dentist can also help ease a child’s fear of that next dental appointment.
Cavities are a form of tooth decay, and regular pediatric dental services can help prevent those and other forms of tooth and gum decay. Detecting cavities in baby teeth are absolutely critical, as a lack of care could lead to even more severe tooth issues in the future.
While your child might not need an intensive cleaning session at age two, it’s important to start teaching good oral hygiene habits as soon as possible.
Regular visits can help you track the health of your child’s teeth, as well as provide regular cleanings and detect any potential issues that might make an appearance in the future.
