Most parents are well aware of the importance of taking care of their children’s teeth, so it comes as a shock when they learn their toddlers have cavities during a medical examination. Dental caries in young children is on the rise – and many experts believe that sippy cups containing sugary drinks are responsible.
Experienced pediatric dentists
Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence. We at quality dental care have experienced pediatrician’s who take care of child’s teeth, gums, and mouth through the various stages of childhood.
Children begin to have their baby teeth begin erupting in the first seventh month of their lives. At the age of 6 or 7 years, they begin to lose their first set of teeth, which are eventually replaced by secondary or permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children are confronted with possible oral decay that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood tooth decay – an infectious disease – is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more frequent than hay fever.
Stress-free first dental visit
We at quality dental care ensure that the first experience a child has in the dental hospital must be positive, which ensures good oral health. We aim to be teachers as well as healers, focusing on inculcating habits such as brushing, flossing and a sense of comfort in the dental office right from the first appointment.
Around the first birthday of a child would be the ideal time for the first dental appointment. Another visit at age seven for an orthodontic assessment could ensure that preventive measures rather than full orthodontic treatment could be a solution to uneven teeth.
Both pre and post treatment care
Baby teeth or deciduous teeth lay the foundation for a permanent, healthy tooth. It is important to keep teeth clean and to teach the children to brush and care.
Deciduous teeth act as responsible for space and are the guidelines for the eruption of permanent teeth. Dental visits should be early and frequent to monitor the development of teeth.
Preventive measures in the form of sealants and fluoride are essential from an early age.
Dental sealants are placed on the biting surfaces of the rear teeth that can prevent cavities in children.
Professional cleaning routine and fluoride treatment are essential to ensure a healthy teeth life.
Dental Doctors in Quality Dental Care Encourage your children to brush their teeth at least twice a day and bring them for a regular dental check once a month
Children who need full mouth rehabilitation are treated to quality dental hospital under general anesthesia.
To keep your child safe and comfortable during a dental procedure, our pediatric dentist may decide to use a general anesthetic in the operating room. General anesthesia can be used in children requiring multiple procedures and who are unwilling / non-cooperative all the procedure can be completed in one sitting without any hassles.
General anesthesia causes your child’s entire body to fall asleep. It is necessary for certain procedures and dental treatments so that its reflexes are completely relaxed. Your child will not feel any pain during the procedure, nor has it suffered.
After treatment, we regularly follow up the patient until the child feels painless and feels satisfied with our treatment.
