Dentistry For Children (PEDODONTICS)

Dental Patient Education: Children's Dentistry
( Video )

The American Dental Association recommends a dental check up by the child's first birthday. In addition to checking for decay and other possible problems, the dental surgeon will teach you how to properly clean your Child's teeth daily, evaluate any adverse habits such as thumb sucking and identify your Child's fluoride needs.

CARE FOR MILK TEETH

Starts as soon as the child is born. After feeding, the baby's gums should be wiped with a clean cloth or sterile gauze. Begin brushing your Child's teeth with little boiled water as soon as the first tooth appears. Once the child learns how to rinse out, a pea-size amount of toothpaste is used. Fluoridated toothpaste is recommended as it helps to protects against cavity (decay) formation.

DECAY IN MILK TEETH

Food residue which gets stuck on the teeth forms a soft layer called 'Plaque'. This plaque has injurious bacteria which form acids that dissolve the tooth structure. This is called decay/caries that leads to teeth breaking & formation of cavities. One serious form of tooth decay among young children is ‘baby bottle tooth decay'. This is caused by frequent and long exposures of infants teeth to liquids which contain sugar such as milk (including breast milk), fruit juices and other sweetened drinks. This is generally observed in children who are given bottle while they are sleeping. The milk forms a rich sugary layer on teeth. Bacteria consume this & start forming acids which dissolves the tooth structure to form cavities. This is generally seen in upper front teeth.

NEED TO TREAT MILK TEETH

Early loss, decayed, over retained milk teeth can directly affect the development and position of the permanent teeth erupting beneath and cause irregularities in them. Hence, the child unknowingly becomes a candidate for future dental treatment. Thus milk teeth are very important for healthy eruption of permanent teeth.

PREVENTION OF DECAY IN MILK TEETH

1) Fluoride Treatment: a specialized treatment in which a concentrated fluoride Gel is applied to the teeth to reduce the chances of decay. The fluoride reacts with the enamel and makes it more resistant to attack by decay producing bacteria. It is done at regular intervals of 6 months.

2) Pit and fissure sealants: Sealants are special free flowing materials which seal (fill) the pits and fissures (grooves) on the chewing surfaces of teeth. This prevents the food from getting stuck in these areas and hence reduces cavity formation.

GOOD HABITS:
  • Brushing after meals.
  • Minimizing sticky food in between meals.
  • Using fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Eating fibrous foods like fruits and vegetables.
  • Regular Dental check-ups.
Attitudes and habits established at an early age are important in helping your child maintaining good dental health throughout life.

Wisdom Tooth Surgery

Dental Patient Education: Wisdom Teeth ( Video )

What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are third permanent molars. They erupt in our late teens or early twenties. We can have a maximum of four wisdom teeth, two in the lower jaw and two in the upper. However, not everyone will have all four wisdom teeth.

Should wisdom teeth be removed?

Often, the lower wisdom tooth is "jammed" or prevented from erupting. This is called an impacted wisdom tooth. This creates problem as food is trapped between the teeth, causing a painful infection of the gum around it and decay to the tooth in front. Therefore, it is often advisable to remove the impacted wisdom teeth even when there seems to be no problem with them.

How is the impacted wisdom tooth removed?

The removal of impacted wisdom tooth requires a simple operation that is carried out on the dental chair under sedation & local anesthesia.
  • The gum around the tooth is incised and moved to one side. Some bone around the tooth is then removed.
  • Often, the tooth is divided into two pieces before it is removed.
  • The gum is then replaced and stitched. The stitches will be removed one week later.
Will there be pain during and after the operation?

Injection for local anesthesia will be given before the operation to numb the area. You should not feel any pain during the operation though you may feel or experience some pressure and discomfort. Antibiotics & Painkillers will be prescribed to you after the operation. Slight swelling of the cheek which may last 1-2 days is expected.

What to do before the Surgery?

Inform the dental surgeon of any existing or past medical conditions and as advised by the dental surgeon get the OPG x-ray and start the pre-medication.

What to do after the Surgery?

After the operation, you should:
  • Bite firmly on the gauze piece and apply ice from outside for at least 30 minutes.
  • Take all medications prescribed.
  • Change to soft diet for the next few days.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise, smoking and alcohol.
  • Consult your dental surgeon if your wound is bleeding badly.
Tooth coloured filling

Bonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, fluoride releasing nano composite resins is the material of choice. Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored filling for cavities additionally, it can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.

Complete Denture

Full dentures are meant for patients who have lost all of their teeth. Specially molded dentures slip over the gums and fit the specific contours of the patient's mouth. Full dentures aid chewing, improve speech, and help to keep the mouth and surrounding facial area in correct alignment. Thankfully, modern advances have made it almost impossible for the average person to differentiate between full dentures and natural teeth. In order to make patients more comfortable, flexible dentures are recommended.

Partial Dentures

For some people, partial or removable dentures are the most suitable option available for replacing absent teeth. Partial dentures, which are kept in place with metal or tooth-colored clasps, aid chewing, prevent sagging of the cheeks and lips, and improve speech. Modern advances have made it almost impossible for the average person to differentiate between dentures and natural teeth.

Flexible Complete and Partial Dentures

Flexi dentures provide people with an aesthetic, comfortable and affordable way of replacing missing teeth which can bring back your appearance and confidence, making something to really smile about.
