The first visit to a dentist is an important day in a child’s life. Depending on how the first visit goes, either the dentist will become the child’s best friend, or the child will suffer traumatic experience with possibly life-long consequences. Therefore ideally the first visit should be of prophylactic nature.
Fissure sealing is one of efficient methods of decay prevention.
This procedure consists in covering biting surfaces of back teeth with special composite sealants, which prevent decay. These teeth have numerous grooves and fissures, which assist in chewing. However, even thorough cleaning cannot remove food remnants from these fissures. Sealants create a protective coating or barrier, which prevents bacteria and food remnants from contaminating tooth surface. Studies have shown that this coating decreases the rate of decay of the most vulnerable teeth. Fissure sealing is absolutely painless and can be performed within one visit.
Some parents wonder why primary teeth should be treated if they will eventually fall out anyway. Unfortunately this opinion is shared even by some ‘specialists’.
However, if not treated, a primary tooth becomes a source of chronic infection that almost certainly will damage the permanent tooth. This source of infection is dangerous for the whole body as well, because it carries the risk of toxic effects causing disease.
Our dentists use modern anesthetics in order to make dental treatment completely painless. Additional topical anesthesia (using anesthetic jellies) makes even the injection itself unnoticeable.
At our clinic we can treat patients from the age of 3, and we find a way to approach every little patient and to solve their problem.
However, there is more to pediatric dentistry, than just treatment of baby teeth. It is not at all uncommon to see decay in children’s permanent teeth. In these cases we utilized the whole range of adult dental techniques, including dental restoration using composite material and dam placement.
Orthodontics plays a special role in pediatric dentistry, because it is best to correct the bite in childhood. Also, prophylactic measures to prevent bite abnormalities are possible in childhood.
Removable devices are used to correct bite in children much more often than in adults.
A removable device is a plastic plate for the lower or upper jaw. The custom-made plate is manufactured using an impression. It is kept in place with special hooks. Typically the plates are worn overnight, but some patients keep them on at daytime (except when brushing teeth). Removable devices are equipped with springs and hooks for bite correction.
A screw is placed between the two halves of the plate, if jaw dilation is required.
Correct your child’s bite in the early age, when it is still easy to do. Remember, your child completely depends on you in caring about their health. Later your child will be grateful to you for this care.
We know how to care for your children!
