Kids Dentist in Mallapur-Nacharam, Hyderabad
Humans start teething when they are as young as 6 months old and develop their set of primary ‘milk’ teeth.
At the age of 6-7 years, humans start losing their milk teeth and the permanent set of teeth start emerging. Because the milk teeth will eventually fall off, some parents tend to ignore taking their child to a dentist.
However, these milk teeth form the basis of developing permanent teeth. If proper care is not taken the problems can emerge which will last a lifetime. In recent years the cases of caries in children have grown manifold. Therefore, it is always advised to start taking care of your baby’s teeth in the very early stages of their life. This includes setting Oral Hygiene routine and regular visits to pediatric dentist.

At Khushi Dental Clinic, we typically use a fixed habit-breaking appliance for tongue thrusting or thumb sucking because they’re the most effective and the success isn’t dependent on a child following instructions for wearing it. We leave it in place for about 12 months so that the habit is fully broken.
Early (Interceptive) Orthodontic Care
Early interceptive orthodontic treatment has proven to be extremely beneficial for the overall oral health, development and desired result for a straight, beautiful smile that can last a lifetime. This preventive evaluation, prior to a child’s permanent teeth erupting allows the opportunity for early action and treatment. Our goal is to thoroughly assess the front-to-back and side-to side tooth relationships so we are able to address any impending concerns at the earliest of stages.
A pulpotomy is a dental procedure in which the pulp of the tooth in the crown (the crown is the part of the tooth that is visible) is removed and the pulp in the root canal is left intact. It is mainly performed on primary teeth (on children) and is used to treat tooth decay that has extended to the pulp.
Space maintainers are used when a primary tooth has been prematurely lost (or extracted) to hold space for the developing permanent tooth. If space is not maintained, teeth on either side of the extraction site can drift into space and prevent the permanent tooth from erupting into its proper position. The space maintainer will be removed from your child’s mouth once his/her permanent tooth replacing the extracted tooth comes in.
Fluoride is a natural element that is found in water, tea, meat, eggs and fish. It helps prevent tooth decay and speed up the remineralization process in which tooth enamel is built back up. Along with dental sealants, fluoride treatment can be highly effective in preventing tooth decay, even on difficult-to-clean grooved tooth surfaces.
Baby root canal treatment
Baby Root canal treatment is the most common treatment performed on baby teeth. Root canal treatments are typically performed on a tooth that has been infected. This is usually a result of tooth decay that has made its way into the pulp chamber.
Stainless Steel Crowns
Stainless steel crowns are metal caps used to repair a decayed baby molar (back tooth) and prevent it decaying further. They are made to fit the exact size and shape of a child’s molar. They are used to cap teeth with large or deep cavities.
If a kid has a cavity in a baby tooth, it often means that bad oral bacteria are eating away at the structure of the tooth and causing decay. To stop the process of decay, a small drill will be used by the dentist to remove the infected area. The hole will then be sealed with filling material. Several different types of fillings can be used by a dentist.
Pit & Fissure Sealant
Dental sealants are materials placed in these pits and fissures to fill them in, creating a smooth surface which is easy to clean. Dental sealants are mainly used in children who are at higher risk of tooth decay, and are usually placed as soon as the adult molar teeth come through.
