Child Care Dentistry / Pediatric Dentistry

Early dental care gets a child habituated to a clean cavity free mouth.

Pediatric Dentists/ Pedodontists are dedicated to the oral health of children

WHY SHOULD WE WORRY ABOUT CAVITIES IN MILK TEETH WHEN THESE WILL BE REPLACED BY PERMANENT TEETH LATER ?

Milk teeth/ Deciduous teeth serve a very important role.

Neglect of milk teeth can cause severe problems. Consequently it is important to make sure that even these temporary baby teeth remain healthy and cavity free.

  • Healthy baby teeth are crucial in proper speech development
  • Deciduous or milk teeth maintain proper space and alignment in the arch for the developing permanent teeth. If milk teeth are lost before time, permanent teeth can erupt in wayward positions.
  • Healthy and nice looking teeth are important in building self-confidence and self-esteem. Teasing/bullying by peers due to decayed or broken down teeth can lead to low self esteem in children.
  • Baby teeth are important in proper feeding and nutrition.

It is crucial to note that proper care of baby teeth is not only important now but for the future dentition as well.

Tooth Decay In Children

Causes of tooth decay in children are the same as in adults, but occurs more quickly. Since milk teeth are smaller in size, the decay reaches the nerve of a primary tooth very fast and can cause pain and discomfort.

If children are on bottle feeding, it can cause rampant decay of teeth. This is called as nursing bottle caries or baby bottle syndrome.
