Preventive Dentistry

Sealants are resins or plastic materials which are usually applied on to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth i.e. molars and premolars. These materials flow into the natural grooves and pits, and seal them, thus protecting these susceptible areas from decay.

Professional fluoride applications at regular intervals helps strengthen tooth enamel against cavities.

Treatment of dental decay Decay can be caused due to a multitude of reasons such as improper maintenance, tooth position, diet habits etc. Once decayed the tooth can be treated using a suitable filling material to replace the lost portion of the tooth. If the tooth has extensive damage, a root canal treatment and/or a crown may be advised. Sometimes if the tooth is not salvageable an extraction may be advised.

Space Maintenance These are devices used to maintain the space of a prematurely lost or extracted primary tooth until its permanent tooth is ready for eruption in its place.

Injuries to teeth Injuries or trauma to teeth, mouth and face of infants and children occur frequently and should not be ignored even in the absence of pain or bleeding. Early observation and treatment of such injuries determines the success of treatment rendered to a great extent.

Special Needs of Special Children Special children are very susceptible to dental decay, trauma and gum disease. Prevention of these problems is possible, if the parents and the dentist can work as a team.
