As we know, `Prevention is better than cure`. At our office we are most concerned with all aspect of preventive care so that every child has the right to grow with a healthy smile. Our goal is to make your child`s experience as comfortable and positive as possible by creating a `child-friendly` environment.
It is recommended that your child should see a dentist when the first tooth appears. Baby teeth are important as they not only hold space for the permanent teeth but are important for chewing, biting, speech and appearance. Parents play a vital role in the success of their child`s dental health by showing their interest, understanding and motivation towards them.
A milk tooth usually stays in until a permanent tooth underneath pushes it out and takes its place. Unfortunately, some children loose their milk tooth too soon. If this happens, the teeth beside it may move into the empty space resulting in the lack of space for the permanent tooth to erupt and hence leads to irregular arrangement of teeth. This can be prevented by an early visit to the dentist. We also provide treatment under sedation for mentally challenged and uncooperative children.
As the children`s permanent teeth erupts we provide fluoride and sealant treatment to prevent cavities. We also help children discontinue habits like tongue thrusting and thumb sucking by habit breaking appliances.
