Childrens Dentistry

Teeth are an important part of growth of children. Not only will they help in proper nutrition but are also a gateway of a beautiful smile and confident future. We understand that for many adults and children alike, going to the dentist is generally not a favourite activity. That is why we ensure that we make every visit as relaxed and comfortable as possible.

Right from that first baby tooth appearing it is important to look after your children’s dental health. We specialize in working with families to ensure that from toddler to teenage years, your children’s teeth are well looked after and your kids are educated on the important needs to know facts of oral hygiene, so they can have a future of beautiful smiles ahead of them.

Visits to the Dentist

Children’s first dental visit can start as early as 12- 18 months of age. It is good to take them along with you to the dentist when you have your own check-ups, so they get used to the environment. At the first appointment we ensure that child is familiar to a dental surgery set up. We give them a ride in dental chair and carry out an examination with mirror.

On their second visit minor treatments like fissure sealants and cleaning with a soft rubber polishing cup are carried out. Demonstration on right brushing techniques is also given in this visit. In saying that, every child is different and has different acceptance to dental treatment. Our dentists are cognizant of this fact and plan the treatment of each child accordingly.
