Pediatric dental services are a branch of dentistry that deals with the oral health care of children, from their birth to adolescence. Under pediatric dentistry, children with special needs are also treated with exclusive care. Children nowadays are exposed to various tooth diseases such as tooth decay, gum infection, tooth infection, and others. There are many reasons why your little one may fall prey to them – poor oral care, consumption of sugary and starchy food, and skipping dental cleanings, to name a few.
It would be best to bring your child to our clinic when they experience pain or bleeding in their teeth and gums. We will check their oral health and provide a suitable pediatric treatment.
Your little one’s teeth are prone to decay, and if not addressed on time, the decay may lead to cavities. We use dental fillings to treat the decay and cavity and restore the functionality and appearance of your child’s teeth.The procedure starts with numbing their infected teeth, after which we remove decay and infection from the area. Once the decay is removed, we will use materials like ceramic, porcelain, silver amalgam, or any other to fill the cavity.
Dental cleanings constitute one of the essential parts of pediatric dental services. Visiting our clinic for regular dental cleaning of your little one ensures that their teeth remain free from bacteria and germs. This procedure also removes the accumulation of plaque and tartar from their teeth and gum line, thus keeping it clean.Dental cleaning involves scaling and root planing. We recommend bringing your little one twice a year for this treatment to maintain their dental hygiene.
Many children may require tooth extraction during their growing years, especially when their teeth get so severely infected that no other procedure could save them. Another reason for tooth extraction in children is when they do not have enough room in their mouth for the new teeth to erupt.We perform both simple and surgical extraction on your little ones. Before the procedure, we give them sedation so that the treatment is carried out comfortably.
Dental crowns are the cap-like structures that we place on your child’s teeth in case of chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Crowns also come as a rescue when their teeth are severely infected. The application of crowns restores and renews their poorly damaged teeth. They are made using several materials – ceramic crowns are the most popular choice.
