Experience The Care Of The Best Pediatric Dentists (Pedodontists) For Your Child. Specialized Dentistry For Children In Mumbai
Start early and save dental trips. Bi annual dental checkups are recommended for the entire family including your tiny tots.
The first tooth appears before a child’s first birthday. Ask us how to be dentally aware to prevent early cavities.
The first physical check up at the dentist should be completed at least by the age of 6. This is the time when the child is losing his milk teeth and gaining the permanent teeth, which are going to last the rest of his life. Contact us for a check up for your little ones.
Persistent Lip/Thumb sucking and/or over retained milk teeth which refuse to shed off as per schedule can lead to crooked, protruded or even absent permanent teeth which may progress to the need for Braces. Our Specialist Dentists at our World Class Dental Clinic in Mumbai will be happy to guide on the subject.
Regular Check-ups and Consultations for children are conducted at our Dental Clinic in Khar – Bandra
Regular dental visits are an important element of your child’s oral health. If your child has an increased risk of tooth decay or unusual growth patterns she/he may need more frequent dental visits.
During the initial dental check-up we will discuss your child’s medical and dental history at The Dental Arch, Bandra. Your child’s teeth will be examined and cleaned to remove any plaque or unsightly stain build-up that could irritate gums or cause tooth decay. Your child’s systemic fluoride status will be evaluated and a fluoride varnish may be applied to prevent cavities and strengthen teeth. Your child will also learn the proper techniques for brushing and flossing and the importance of limited snacking. Schedule a visit at our Dental Clinic in Bandra, Mumbai to know more.
Even if your child has never had a cavity, she/he can still benefit from regular visits to assess any changes in your child’s oral and facial growth and development. Your child may need fluoride supplements or sealants. We will also identify any orthodontic problems and suggest treatment to keep your child’s smile beautiful.
Our Child Specialist Dentists in Mumbai are specially trained to work with children and will talk to your child in a way that they can understand using words, pictures and ideas. We want our patients to be motivated and able to take responsibility for their health.
How do sealants work?
When the back teeth (Molars) develop, irregularities in the chewing surfaces of these teeth, called “pits and fissures”, form. Even the best toothbrusher will not be able to clean these areas since a single toothbrush bristle is too large to reach the bottom of these areas. Cavities form in these crevices because food becomes trapped and bacteria grow in these tiny spaces.
Pit and fissure sealants can only be applied to the chewing surfaces. The sides of the molar teeth are still cavity-prone. It is important to brush all areas of the tooth well. This includes regular flossing.
Sealants usually last several years. They will be checked regularly at your child’s six-month preventative visits. Reapplication may be necessary if chipping occurs. It is important that we detect any loss of sealant material early; therefore, regular check-ups are very important.
