Pediatric Dentistry

Pedodontics or Pediatric dentistry specializes in children’s oral health. We try to make your children visits to the dentist as smooth and comfy as possible. Children visits should be early starting the second year of their age. First visit to the dentist is introductory to manage the children’s fear.

 

We offer a variety of treatments depending on the teeth’s conditions:

 

  • Prevention: Following the international guidelines, fluoride should be applied to the children’s teeth every 3 to 6 months depending on their caries risk. In addition, fissure sealants (white coatings) are applied on the grooves of the back teeth when they start to come through, usually lasting 5 to 10 years.
  • Restorations: teeth are restored with permanent fillings after caries removal.
  • Pulpotomy versus pulpectomy: when caries are reaching the nerve, taking out part of them or the full nerve depends on the tooth’s condition.
  • Extraction and Space maintainer: deciduous teeth should be extracted while maintaining its space free to allow the eruption of permanent teeth in their exact positions.
  • Use of sedation if needed.

 

For a successful treatment, parents or guardians should maintain their children’s oral health by at least brushing their teeth twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste and reduce sugar consumption.
