Sealants are primarily a preventive treatment for the permanent teeth, not the milk or baby teeth. The first permanent teeth emerge between five and seven years of age. Another set comes about six years later. Teeth sealants last longer than four years for more than half of the children and young people who have them done. During this time the risk of cavities in the sealed teeth is about halved. The resins applied as sealants these days are generally believed to be reasonably safe.
Fluoride treatments commonly are given to children as their teeth are developing. If your child has a history of cavities or is at high risk of decay, he or she should use additional fluoride to promote remineralization. Often, children get fluoride treatments every six months for extra protection against cavities, even if they already drink fluoridated water.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with straightening and correcting the tooth alignment and the dental specialist who does this is called an "Orthodontist". Generally, the first Orthodontic consultation with a qualified Orthodontist should be done when the child's first permanent incisors, usually lower central incisors, start erupting in the mouth i.e. at the age of about 7 years. After complete evaluation of your child, the Orthodontist may suggest to begin with early Orthodontic treatment. We offer simple and innovative plans to prevent children undergoing complicated procedures. Fixed appliances techniques available for children and adults from eminent orthodontists.
