Kids dental treatment or Pediatric Dentist
As an adult, we take care of our dental health with the habits taught to us in childhood. These habits stay with us our whole life; we may improve gradually but the basics remain the same. It is fundamentally important to inculcate kid's good dental habits and keep a constant check on them.
Children go through many body changes, including their teeth. These changes hugely impact the facial structure and teeth position. In this period of change, regular visits to the dentist can make sure of the health and proper alignment of a child's teeth.
Kid's dental treatment is a widely different and sometimes difficult procedure than adult treatment. It can be challenging for a kid to describe the exact problem he/she is facing. Unlike adults, kids cannot understand the treatment as adults do and are often scared of so many instruments and new faces. In such cases dentists need to be friendly with kids, make them comfortable and recognize their exact problem. Our dentists, Dr. Mili Gupta is super child friendly and loved by all the kids treated at the AMD Dental Clinic.
In India, parents still hesitate to take their child to see the dentist, and most of them take it for granted, but kids should be visiting a dentist twice a year for regular check-ups.
Let's understand the common dental problem faced by kids.
1. Dental Caries/Cavity
Cavities present the most widespread dental problems in children. Cavities are also known as tooth decay, permanently damaging areas in a tooth. Cavities occur when dental plaque eats at an outer surface of a tooth called enamel and causes a hole. Cavities frequently develop when children don't properly brush their teeth. White spots on the tooth, Sensitivity to cold foods or drinks, Swelling, Dark spots on the tooth are typical symptoms of cavities.
Our dentists treat cavities with a dental filling procedure. This involves the removal of tooth decay and filling the hole with a high-quality tooth-colored tooth filling material. A dental filling can save or preserve the tooth.
If the tooth pulp is infected, pulpotomy and pulpectomy procedures are carried out. Here, the infected pulp is removed, and canals are shaped and cleaned. The obturation is done using metapex which resorbs as the permanent tooth grows in its place.
However, if the tooth affected has a poor prognosis, then our dentists extract the milk tooth. Our best dentists at AMD Dental Clinic acknowledge the importance of milk teeth and if they extract the tooth, they use a space maintainer to maintain the space for the growth of the permanent tooth.
2. Teeth Extraction
Dental crowding and teeth alignments are common scenarios that are found in kids. The primary reason for these issues is the non-removal of the primary teeth. These primary teeth are also known as Over-retained milk teeth. They do not allow enough space for permanent teeth to grow in which can further lead to many dental issues. Our best dentists recommend extracting these over-retained milk teeth to allow the correct eruption of adult teeth.
If primary teeth are not extracted at the right time, it can lead to malaligned teeth, which later require treatments like braces for proper alignment. Teeth extraction is required according to the patient's needs.
Tooth extraction may be carried out for dental braces treatment.
Also in case of trauma, avulsion, and fracture of the tooth, tooth extraction may be required.
Painless tooth extraction remains our promise to your kids. Therefore don't hesitate, procure an appointment now for painless tooth extraction
3. Dental Braces
Teeth Braces are orthodontic devices that help in correcting the misalignment of teeth in kids as well as adults. Teeth Braces (Tooth clip) help realign the teeth and the jaw and correct a patient's smile. Children between 13 and 16 years of age are the most common age group to get dental braces. Dental Braces principally consist of brackets and archwires. Our best dentists affix brackets on the patient's teeth, these brackets are attached with the archwire. Our dentists position archwire in such a way that it applies gentle and constant pressure on teeth to reposition them. AMD Dental Clinic, being the best dental clinic in Jaipur offers various types of dental braces for kids. Major types of braces for children are Traditional Metal braces, Clear Braces and Clear Aligners. Braces improve your child's smile and boost confidence. They also correct the alignment and minimize the unwanted teeth gap to equally distribute the force of mastication. In addition, we have removable orthodontic appliances available for minor misalignment.
4. Fluoride varnish to prevent tooth decay
Fluoride varnish is a dental treatment to help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride varnish slows down or stops tooth decay from getting worse. Fluoride varnish is painted thoroughly on each tooth with a small brush by our dentists. Varnish over teeth hardens once it comes in contact with saliva in your child's mouth. Fluoride varnish is extremely safe and it is employed and recommended by dentists and doctors all over the world. It is the most convenient way to help prevent tooth decay in children. Our best dentists recommend this treatment 2-4 times a year for kids, depending on the likeliness of children to get a cavity. Most importantly, the child can go back to eating normal food within 4-6 hours.
5. Trauma to teeth and bleeding/Injury to teeth/ tooth chipping
Kids are playful and always learning some new things, while doing that they take falls, get themselves hurt. Kids are prone to damage their teeth by this trauma or injury or small accidents while playing. It causes chipped, cracked, or completed detachment of tooth which results in immense pain and increased sensitivity. In such cases, our kid specialist dentists perform a thorough scan of the full mouth of a kid, look for the exact impact and cause, which helps them decide the severity of the damage. If the fractured portion is limited to enamel, we can do tooth filling. If the fractured portion extends up to a pulp, pulpectomy is required followed by a tooth crown. If the level of fracture is below CEJ then orthodontic and various other factors are taken into consideration. If at all the tooth is impossible to save due to the quality of trauma, we provide painless tooth removal for your kids. Our dentists use space maintainers until the permanent tooth grows in its position. Dentists at AMD Dental Clinic further prescribe medicines and antibiotics that help to put off a child at ease.
6. Space maintainers
Space maintainers are dental appliances that are ordinarily used to manage premature baby tooth loss. Space maintainers prevent misalignment of teeth also known as malocclusions and overcrowding. If your child loses teeth prematurely, due to any incident, disease, decay, or trauma, space maintainers ensure ample space for permanent teeth to grow without misalignment. Space maintainers can be fixed or removable and they can be unilateral or bilateral. Fixed unilateral space maintainers maintain space on just one side of the mouth while bilateral space maintainers are placed after teeth are lost on both sides of the mouth. Space maintainers minimize the need for dental braces in the future while encouraging the appropriate growth of permanent teeth inside the bone. It does not cause any pain to the child and is safest to use. Our dentists recommend space maintainers for kids as it has the highest success rate and it can help beautify your kid's smile with the smallest treatment.
