      In the early stages, cavities don't always cause pain or exhibit noticeable symptoms. That's why regular dental check-ups and preventive care are so crucial – they help steer clear of any painful or traumatic experiences for your little one.

      There are several ways to help protect your child from oral health problems, including fluoride varnish, sealants and routine dental cleaning. Sealants are a quick, safe, and pain-free way to shield your child’s back teeth from cavity-causing bacteria. Fluoride keeps your child's teeth strong and more resistant to decay. Routine dental cleanings help prevent the buildup of plaque and gum disease.

      Dental Treatments for Children

      Dental Sealants

      Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of children’s molars and premolars to prevent cavities. They act as a barrier, sealing off the grooves and crevices where bacteria and food particles can accumulate, leading to decay. This quick and painless procedure is especially beneficial for the little ones, offering long-term protection against cavities in their vulnerable teeth.

      Fluoride Treatment

      Topical fluoride treatments at the dentist helps prevent cavities in children. Getting a fluoride varnish is painless and easy, taking only a few minutes to apply. The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend application of fluoride varnish at least every 6 months to both primary and permanent teeth of children at high risk for decay.

      Dental Treatments Under General Anesthesia

      Young children who require long, extensive dental treatments such as full mouth rehabilitations may require getting their treatments under general anesthesia. General anesthesia can also be helpful for the little ones who are uncooperative, anxious, or have special needs. Under a controlled state of unconsciousness, our pediatric dentists can do all the necessary procedures while your little one remains unaware and pain-free.

      Conscious Sedation for Kids

      Laughing gas is considered one of the mildest and safest sedation techniques used in children's dentistry. Administered through a mask placed over the nose, it induces a relaxed and euphoric state, helping children remain calm during dental procedures. The effects wear off quickly, allowing your child to resume normal activities after treatment with minimal recovery time.

      Endodontic Treatment for Children

      When a child experiences a deep cavity or dental trauma, it can affect more than just their ability to eat. The pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels, can become inflamed and infected. This infection can be quite painful for your child. Endodontic treatments are essential for preserving your child's natural tooth and preventing further complications.

      Children’s Dental Crowns

      Crowns are the best option in restoring and protecting children’s teeth that are badly decayed, fractured, or too weak to hold fillings. This is especially true for larger cavities which are often associated with broken-down teeth and pulp (nerve) infection. They are often recommended following an extensive cavity treatment, pulpotomy, or pulpectomy.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      You can use any soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head. These are especially designed for infants and must be used at least once a day before bedtime.

      Primary teeth are important because they help your child to speak properly and chew normally. These baby teeth also prepare the space when it’s time for the permanent teeth to grow.

      Rinse the affected area with warm salt water and apply a cold compress on your child’s face in case it is swollen. You can give your child some over-the-counter medication such as acetaminophen for pain relief. Avoid placing aspirin on the kid’s teeth or gums. And of course, visit your pediatric dentist as soon as possible.

      From birth, you can begin cleaning and massaging your child’s gums with a soft infant toothbrush or a clean cloth with water. As soon as the baby teeth erupt, you can start applying a smear of fluoride toothpaste on the child’s toothbrush.

      When the child turns 3, you can increase the amount to a pea-sized dollop and make sure you assist him/her while brushing. Make sure to let your kids spit out the excess toothbrush after brushing.

      If your child needs to nurse to fall asleep, refrain from putting anything other than water in their feeding bottle. In case your baby falls asleep while feeding, remove the bottle when he/she stops sucking. Slowly introduce your child to drinking from a cup at six months. Make sure to regularly brush and floss your kid’s teeth as soon as two primary teeth are touching.

      If your child has been thumbsucking and using the pacifier for a long time, this might cause some problems on the way their teeth would line up. While most kids stop these habits on their own, your pediatric dentist may recommend a mouth appliance if your child finds it difficult to stop the habit.

      When you prepare your child’s meals, make sure to include one serving of each: fruits and vegetables, bread and cereals, milk and dairy products, as well as meat, fish and eggs. Limit the serving of sugary and starchy foods to protect your child’s teeth from decay.

      Dental sealants are used to protect the crevices of the chewing surfaces of the teeth. These prevent any food particles from getting stuck on teeth which may eventually cause cavities. Your pediatric dentist may recommend dental sealants as a painless and preventative way to protect your child’s teeth for a long time.
