We seal off the decay before it happens, by applying pit and fissure sealants on the tooth surface. Sealant is a clear resin material that is painted on the surface of the tooth. It acts as a barrier to food, plaque and acid, thus protecting the decay prone areas of teeth.
It is recommended to visit a Dentist every six months from the child’s first birthday. Routine visits will start your child on a lifetime of good dental health and also motivate the child in keeping their mouth clean. Healthy eating habits lead to healthy teeth. Like the rest of the body, the teeth, bones and the soft tissues of the mouth need a well balanced diet. The children should be advised not to eat hard candy etc. as it remains in the mouth for long time and is precarious. Your partnership with your Dentist will help ensure your child’s healthy teeth and a confident bright beautiful smile.
Tooth decay begins with dental plaque, a soft, sticky substance that builds up on your teeth. Plaque is mostly made up of bacteria, which feed on sugar from food and drink, producing acids as a waste product. The acids attack the teeth and tooth decay results. For patients who have lot of decay, we recommend extra fluoride, either as tablets or drops, or as a varnish painted onto the teeth.
Morning appointments are best for your child’s first visit. Coming from a good night’s sleep, your child is more rested and much more cooperative in the morning. Also, morning appointments will not pose conflicts on your child’s mealtimes or naps.

We would recommend that you take your child for their first orthodontic evaluation when they turn 7. By this age, most children will have a mix of adult and baby teeth, which will help the Orthodontist to determine if there are any developing problems such as misalignment of the jaws, crowding, or overbites.
As a parent, it can be difficult to tell whether your child will benefit from early orthodontic treatment. However, Orthodontists have the specialist training to know when and how it is appropriate to treat, when to wait and when no treatment is required.
