Children dentistry is dental care for the children from infancy to teen years.
In Confydentz , we have specialists to take care of dental health in children. We do following treatments:
Baby teeth or milk teeth or primary teeth start to erupt at the age of six to twelve months. All these Baby teeth shed out in few years and permanent teeth take their place. However they have really important functions and proper care should be taken for good oral health.
If they are not treated properly the child eventually
In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when the first tooth appears or no later than his/her first birthday. Your child should be taken to a dentist when the first tooth starts erupting or before his/her first birthday in order to prevent dental problems.
By the age of 5yrs to 6yrs most children stop these habits. Thumb sucking and pacifier habits become a problem only when they are prolonged for longer period. If the child uses a pacifier constantly and aggressively it can become oral health problem which needs to be addressed as early as possible, and a habit breaking appliance may be recommended We at Confydentz Dental Clinic in Guntur have a well-qualified Pediatric dentist who treats our children with all dental needs.
Sealants are thin layer of coatings placed on the teeth with deep fissures(grooves) mostly back teeth, on their upper or chewing surfaces. In the depressions and grooves they are bonded immediately and they help in protecting the enamel of each tooth. They will not allow the tooth to form caries by forming a barrier between tooth surface and bacteria. Sealants with fluoride combination have more potential of driving away caries in children.
The American academy of pediatric dentistry has developed this brief guide to help parents and caregivers be prepared for the most common types of childhood injuries.
1) A BABY TOOTH/MILK TOOTH IS KNOCKED OUT
2) A TOOTH IS CHIPPED OR BROKEN
3) A PERMANENT TOOTH IS KNOCKED OUT
4) AN ACTIVITY INVOLVES RISK OR FALLS OR COLLISIONS
Risk with dental x-rays is very little. The radiation to which the children are exposed is carefully limited and monitored by the pediatric dentist. For the safety and minimized radiation lead aprons and high speed films are used. It has been proved that the radiation exposure is almost equal to that from short airplane flight.
Treatment in young children is called as early orthodontics or interceptive orthodontics. Early orthodontics can enhance your child’s smile, but the benefits far surpass appearance. It can be started as early as 6-7 years of age. Teeth are not yet erupted fully and jaw is in growing stage.

When teeth begin to appear start brushing twice daily. Before three years child’s teeth are cleaned with water and tooth brush or with soft bristles or finger brush. Brushing by children after 3 years should be supervised by the parents. Toothpaste used should be pea-sized amount and children should not swallow excessive toothpaste. Fluoridated toothpaste should not be used until age 3yrs as they cannot spit it out and excess fluoride is not good for children at that age.
