Pediatric dentistry is an area of specialization that focuses on the treatment of children from birth to adolescence with a concentration on growth, development, and behavioral guidance for both healthy and special needs children. We will take any X- rays that are required for diagnostic purposes. Everything is situated under one roof at Race Course in Ramanathapuram, Coimbatore.
The initial appointment will include a detailed examination of the oral cavity and a discussion of dental and oral development, diet, oral hygiene, and fluoride. Additional services are generally scheduled for a subsequent visit. This allows Crown Dental Care to create a treatment plan that is specific to your child and addresses present concerns as well as any problems that we anticipate may arise in the future.
Parents and would-be-parents beware; tooth decay can still be a common problem in infancy and childhood. Over the past few decades, despite the general reduction in dental tooth decay, early childhood tooth decay is still common.
The approach that baby teeth are not essential is a fallacy. We would not be born with them otherwise. Baby (milk) teeth are necessary not only for appearance, eating and smiling, but also serve to hold spaces for developing permanent (adult) teeth. In addition, baby teeth play a role in the development of speech.
Teeth normally affected are the top front teeth. The back teeth in top and bottom may also be affected. Bottle and breast-fed babies are both susceptible. Babies left with a bottle as a pacifier and those who are frequently nursed, especially at night, run the danger of bottle or nursing decay due to the prolonged exposure to milk (human milk is no exception) or juice.
Early visits can prevent minor problems from becoming major ones. Your dentist will be able to detect early decay. Teach good habits early, as good habits start young for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Brush frequently to keep plaque levels low, reduce snacking and begin dental visits early.
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are a set of four teeth that erupt into the back four corners of the mouth, behind the 12 year old molars. This usually occurs between the ages of 17 to 21.
All dentists are trained in removal of teeth, however sometimes you may need to be referred to a specialist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who can remove your wisdom teeth for you.
