Special Pediatric & Orthodontic Care

Pediatric Dentistry works with patients ranging in age from birth to adolescence. By being an age-specific specialty, pediatric dentistry encompasses behavior management of children, supervision of orofacial growth and development, and prevention of oral diseases.

It includes all the preventive and restorative procedures for the most commonly occurring oral condition “Dental Caries”, commonly referred to as tooth cavities in children.

 It includes interceptive procedures for correction of thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, and lip biting habits in children which can lead to irregularities of teeth or jaws at a later age.

It involves procedures aimed at restoring fractured or broken teeth due to dental trauma in children.

Correction of poor alignment of developing teeth with orthodontic appliances (Removable or fixed) is also undertaken.

It focuses on the management of children with special health care needs and physically and mentally challenged children under sedation and general anesthesia in a hospital setup. It deals with dental management of conditions like Cleft lip and palate seen in neonates.

Pediatric dentistry involves parental counseling regarding home oral hygiene practices and diet counseling for the overall general well-being of a child.
