Visiting our dental clinic with your little one is a great idea to ensure optimum oral health for them. After all, children, too, suffer from many dental problems. Similar to adults, it is essential to keep your child's oral health in check. It is because kids are often exposed to eating sugary and sticky foods and drinks, and they don't usually follow proper dental hygiene.
We will examine the dental health of your child and then perform pediatric procedures like cleaning, fluoride treatment, fillings, etc., depending upon their condition.
- Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are one of the most common dental procedures we perform on our little patients. Children's teeth are prone to decay, and if no action is taken on time, it may lead to cavities. In most cases, we treat cavities with a straightforward dental filling procedure.
We will numb the infected teeth and remove the damaged or decayed areas. After this, we will fill the teeth with the material of your choice. Some of the most common materials used for this procedure are ceramic, porcelain, and silver amalgam.
- Dental Cleanings
Regular sessions of dental cleaning keep your child's dental health in check. During the procedure, we remove the accumulation of plaque, tartar, and other substances from the surface of their teeth, thus cleaning them thoroughly.
We advise you to bring your little one to our clinic once every six months for dental cleaning. This procedure also saves their gum from decay or infection.
Many children may require dental extractions during their youth. When your child's teeth get overly infected, and they do not have enough room in their mouth for a root canal or other procedure, we perform a dental extraction.
We ensure that your child feels relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure, which is why we use mild sedation such as laughing gas or any other form of sedation.
- Dental Crowns
We may recommend dental crowns when your child's teeth are severely infected. We also perform this procedure to renew and restore their poorly damaged teeth.
- Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride treatment is effective in keeping tooth decay and cavities at bay. It prevents the build-up or hardening of plaque on the teeth of your little ones, thus keeping their dental health in check. This non-invasive treatment also strengthens their enamel.
This procedure requires single sitting only. After the treatment, ensure that your child doesn't eat, drink, or rinse for at least 30 minutes to let their teeth absorb the fluoride.
