DENTISTRY FOR CHILDREN - LAYING THE FOUNDATION FOR THEIR FUTURE HEALTH
The right dental care for children is of paramount importance. It is one of their core establishers of proper health. The fact that oral healthcare in children is deeply interlinked with their well-being is indisputable. It is only natural therefore, to want services of the finest quality when it comes to the welfare of your young ones.
Our philosophy is fairly simple. We lay great emphasis upon preventative and proactive dentistry, to ensure that your child does not have to undergo any major dental work in the future. Our time spent in educating children regarding various habits builds in them a strong foundation of oral well-being. We identify detrimental habits such as mouth breathing, thumb sucking etc and offer constructive solutions that help remedy them before they cause any serious destruction to their oral and general health. This also minimizes the need for major reconstructive work in the subsequent years.
Tending to a child is never the same as tending to an adult. Children come with their own set of apprehensions which must be taken into account while treating them. Communication is the key here. Our team of dentists and oral hygienist have been trained to communicate effectively with children and put them at ease. One of our aims is to educate them on the importance of oral hygiene and good habits.
With various behaviour guidance techniques in place, we ensure stress-free visits for both the child and the parent.
Ignoring fundamental dental care in the formative years can lead to serious complications in the future. Dentistry for children begins to get challenging as and how the quantity of work involved increases. To avoid this, we heavily advocate preventive dentistry. We believe children shouldn't have to experience the pain of tooth decay, damage or sensitivity to warrant a dental visit, when they can be avoided by precautionary measures.
Our oral hygienist and dentist administer a teeth cleaning procedure using fluoride gel. They recommend a child get this treatment every 3-6 months. Fluoride increases the inherent strength of the enamel of the tooth decreasing the chances of decay.
Additionally, using sealants in the deep grooves of teeth (which act as catchment for bacteria and food) prevent the formation of cavities, and dental decay. This is a simple 10-minute procedure which, if done regularly, greatly fortifies your child's dental foundation.
Part of our preventive process is education on at-home dental practices. We educate both the child and the parents regarding proper brushing techniques based on the age of the child.
IN DEPTH CONSULTATION
The first appointment of a consultation / examination, is a very important process before initiating any dental procedure.

The time required for the completion of the treatment and the exact fee estimate would be clarified during this appointment.
Various alternative treatment plans would be given to you as well to suit your budget and time constraints if any. All your doubts and queries would be solved by the doctor at this stage. After this appointment, you can choose to proceed with the treatment only if you feel comfortable as there are no obligations. Only a one time consultation fee would be charged.
