When a child is diagnosed with tooth decay, the decay must be removed and the tooth restored. Depending on the size of the defect, the treatment usually involves the placement of a filling.
It is the treatment of Root canal in kids. The first treatment decision in young patients with one or more badly decayed teeth is whether to retain or extract these teeth. In most cases, primary teeth can be saved by performing a pulpectomy, a method which removes the infected nerve tissue in the crown of the tooth, while the nerve in the root of the tooth remains vital. After a pulpectomy, the tooth will need some structural support and a tight cover that protects the tooth from bacteria. This is achieved by using a crown. These can be silver (stainless steel) or tooth-colored (zirconia). Both types will be cemented onto the tooth and remain until the tooth will naturally exfoliate. They can be fitted in a single appointment as they are pre-manufactured and can be amended and shaped to ensure tight fit. This is the process of how root canal in kids done.
Some cavities in children’s teeth are too large or too deep, and a simple filling will no longer be sufficiently effective. In these cases, a children’s crown can be used, which are pre-made and designed to cover the entire tooth. These crowns can be white or silver and they are pre manufactured in different sizes and shapes and can be adjusted so they fit perfectly to your child’s tooth. The silver crowns are made of stainless steel and the white of zirconia ceramic. They are sufficiently enduring to typically last for the life of a baby’s (deciduous) tooth. A crown will protect the deciduous tooth and root, until it is naturally lost.
Our philosophy is to save primary teeth whenever possible, but there are occasions when an extraction may be necessary. If this is the case then your child should not participate in any physical activities for the rest of the day. Try to give him/her as much rest as possible but keep the head upright to avoid bleeding. Furthermore avoid hot food and drinks until the anaesthesia wears off and be careful that he/she does not chew his/her cheek or lip and does not rinse out the area for the first 24 hours.
Primary teeth maintain the space for the permanent teeth. If a primary molar is lost prematurely, fixed or removable space maintainers can take over this important function
Sometimes children lose more than just one of their teeth due to an accident, sickness or caries. If this creates a psychological problem a pediatric prostheses is a good option to help your child to regain the ability to chew, bite, and smile as normal (helps in phonetics)

What your child eats affects his/her teeth. A diet rich in carbohydrates, sugar, and starches can potentially result in tooth decay. Healthy food choices include vegetables and cheeses for snack time and sticky, chewy foods like caramel, candies should be avoided. Sugary snacks, juices or soda should be avoided and, if consumed at all, limited to meal times. Dietary choices have a great impact on the health of your child’s teeth
Brushing is key in maintaining healthy teeth-not only does it remove remnants of food, but dental plaque as well. Dental plaque is comprised of bacteria and metabolic waste products. The bacteria multiply rapidly and form a sticky mass that adhere to the teeth and produce aggressive acid. This acid attacks the enamel and initiates the decaying process.
We highly recommend the following:
Brush at least twice a day.
Brush all the teeth, not just the front ones and spend at least 2 or 3 minutes brushing using age appropriate fluoride toothpaste.
Fissure sealants are tooth coloured coatings that are painted onto the biting surface of the back teeth. Pit and fissures are grooves which provide a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.To prevent cavities in these pits and fissures you can cover them with special composite varnish fissure sealant.The application of these fissure sealants are easy to do and children as young as six years of age are able to be comfortable with the procedure.
Fluoride is a soft colourful mineral and a natural constituent of many food sources and drinking water. Evidence suggests that the caries reducing effect of fluoride is mostly exerted by its topical effect. The amount of fluoride in toothpaste (1000-1450 ppm depending on the age of the child) is sufficient to significantly reduce the risk of decay. Nevertheless, if your child is already suffering from tooth decay or shows increased risk for it, we can apply fluoride gel to your child’s teeth. At Denté we perform an individual risk assessment and will inform you how much and what type of fluoride is best for your child.
