Paediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry includes all phases of oral health care for growing children. It is the practice and research of preventive oral care in children from birth through puberty. A Paediatric Dentist can perform various type of procedures on a child, depending on his/her needs and medical past.

It is recommended that children should visit a dentist for regular exams and teeth cleanings a minimum of twice a year (every six months), starting from six months of a baby’s first tooth eruption and 1 year.

During a child’s visitation to the clinic, a pediatric dental exam and teeth cleaning should be performed on the child to help reduce disease chances and keep the mouth and teeth healthy throughout their lifetime.

What are the common
Paediatric Dentistry Treatments?

Extractions: There are cases where the primary teeth become over-retained (which is the loosening and tightening of the teeth back into the gums), preventing the growth of permanent teeth.

Mouthguards: Mouthguards help preserve the teeth and gums from injury, especially if your child plays sports. However, selecting the right mouthguard is crucial. A good mouthguard must be tear-resistant, comfortable and doesn’t obstruct breathing.

  • Sealants: This is a safe, efficient, and painless way to shield a child’s teeth from developing cavities for a long period of time. This procedure, though not so common, can also be used for adults on their permanent teeth.
  • Flouride: After professional teeth cleaning, we apply topical fluoride to your child’s teeth to help prevent cavities and reduce the chances of dental plaque buildup while keeping primary tooth enamel strong over time.
