Why Is It Important For Your Child To See A Dentist ?

Visiting our Pediatric Dentist at Emerald Glow Dental Centre, you can guarantee that your child gets the dental care they need as well as prevent further problems.  A routine checkup is a great way for your child to get familiar with the dental clinic, which reduces anxiety and ensures a smooth visit. One negative experience can adversely impact your child’s attitude towards dentistry for the rest of his life. 

As per the recommendations of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child’s first dental visit should be as soon as the first tooth erupts and no later than her first birthday. This early care enables to address various issues that can threaten the dental health of the child, such as poor eating habits, use of pacifier, thumb sucking, bottle feeding etc. It also helps to put into place a preventive plan and strategies such as diet plans, use of specialized toothbrush, mouthwash etc. which eventually will prevent dental problems. Keep in mind that dental problems in your child can affect the growth and development of his face and jaws. Baby teeth can get cavities which can be very painful for your little one.

Children’s Dental Services Available at Emerald Glow Dental Centre
Diagnostic Care

Comprehensive oral exams help to assess the oral health of your child. They can help to detect and prevent common problems like tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, abnormal tooth alignment and temporomandibular joint issues.

Digital X-rays are taken as a part of the check-up if required. They reduce the radiation exposure by more than 90 percent. The high quality images produced help to diagnose cavities, bone structure and the status of developing teeth

Preventative  Care
Dental cleaning
Professional cleanings also known as scaling and polishing gently remove the deposits and stains on teeth, making them smooth and shiny.
Dental sealants
Dental sealants are thin coatings applied to the chewing surface of molars. They seal the narrow grooves, where the toothbrush bristles do not reach and which act as a trap for bacteria. Cavities can form in such grooves. Research has shown that sealed molars have a much less chance of developing cavities.
Fluoride treatment
Fluoride treatment strengthens your child’s teeth and keeps them free of cavities. It is applied in the form of a gel or varnish. Fluoride treatment is absolutely safe and highly effective to prevent tooth decay.
Restorative & Cosmetic Care
Dental fillings
These include white composite resin filling and other dental fillings.
Dental Crowns or Caps
Crowns are done when the tooth is damaged to an extent where a filling will not suffice. They are most commonly required following root canals on baby teeth. Emerald Glow Dental Centre offers stainless steel crowns as well as tooth-colored crowns.
Baby/ Pediatric Root Canals
At times either due to deep untreated dental decay or trauma the dental pulp of the baby tooth is damaged and needs to be repaired, requiring a baby root canal. If such inflamed tooth is left untreated, it can lead to the formation of pus, abscess, swelling, damage to the bone leading to pain and can possibly damage the permanent tooth.
Importance of Baby Teeth

Although baby teeth fall out after a certain age, they are essential. Preserving them with the help of baby root canals is vital to

  • Prevent damage to the surrounding bone by removal of the damaged pulp
  • Enable proper speech and chewing
  • Retain space for permanent teeth to avoid crowding in the future
  • Preserve the shape of your child’s face
  • Prevent pain to your child
Tooth Extractions

Sometimes baby teeth are damaged beyond repair and need to be extracted to protect your child’s health. The removal of the tooth leaves a space that can lead to problems due to migration of the adjacent teeth into the open spaces, leading to orthodontic and bite problems. Hence our Pediatric Dentists recommend the use of Space Maintainer to maintain the space of the extracted tooth until the permanent tooth erupts

Orthodontic Screenings
Children are screened by Orthodontists at Emerald Glow Dental Centre for issues associated with growth and development; not only limited to crooked teeth but also harmful habits like thumb sucking, mouth breathing, tongue thrusting.  When problems are identified at an early age the treatment is faster with better results. We offer metal braces as well as invisible aligners to correct problems with teeth alignment.
Care for patients with Special Needs
Children with special needs, such as those with developmental disorders, physical disabilities, differently abled and those with special behavioral needs can have a challenging time at the dental visit. Our Pediatric Dentists are extensively trained and have experience in treating such patients.

The child should visit a Pediatric dentist till the age of 14, which is the age by which the last of the baby teeth fall out. Beyond this age the child would have all adult/ permanent teeth. Hence thereafter it is the choice of the child and his/her parents.

They are usually advised for kids who are at higher risk of developing cavities, such as those with poor oral hygiene, history of tooth decay, white spots due to braces, poor diet, and enamel defects.
