Pediatric dentist

plays an important role in the education of good oral habits to children. Having a dental home is the key to a fun and happy dental experience.






Pediatric Dentistry

involves prevention through home care modalities, proper diet, and periodic check-ups and cleanings. Fluoride Varnish application at cleaning appointments is a safe and effective preventive measure. Varnishes have advantage over gels, foams, rinses, and pastes because of their ability to retain on the tooth surface for hours. Children can eat and drink right after application and it has a good taste!




Sealants

are used to protect molars from oral bacteria and harmful oral acids and help cavity prevention. Early intervention is part of a pediatric dentist's mission and may include the following:




"CAVITY Repair"

The most prominent cause of Early Childhood Caries is frequent exposure to sweetened liquids. These liquids include breast milk, baby formula, juice, and sweetened water – almost any fluid a parent might fill a baby bottle with.

"Habit control"

Children who continue to suck thumbs or pacifiers after the age of five are at high-risk for developing dental complications. Also grinding habit can shorten and blunt the teeth. This can lead to headaches and muscle pain and should be intercepted.


 


"Growth modification"

Growth modification is an amazing opportunity for pediatric dentists to help their young guests reach their optimal growth potential. This is done through arch development, habit control, bite modification and other easy and simple modalities.


 


"Kids Orthodontics"

  • Anteroposterior deviations – like overbite or an underbite

  • Overcrowding – when there is an insufficient space for the normal growth and development of adult teeth.

  • Aesthetic problems – A beautiful straight smile may be marred by a single misaligned tooth. 

These problem can be addressed by Orthodontics, click here for before and after results.
