Children’s teeth are important to the child’s nutrition, confidence and mental health
Children’s teeth are small and decay penetration is rapid, so parents should visit the dentist every six months even if the child is not in pain.

The importance of primary teeth in children:

  • Keeping the necessary distance for the permanent dental arch.
  • Directing and regulating eruption of permanent teeth.
  • Compensation for a back tooth when it is missing.
  • Induction of growth of the jaws through the process of chewing.
  • Help develop speech.
  • Prevent the development of abnormal habits.
  • Have an esthetic role.

Pediatric dentistry provides full care for your children through a set of procedures performed , including:

Treating caries on temporary teeth and restoring them with the best materials in terms of durability and aesthetics.
Treating the nerve of the temporary, inflamed teeth in one session.
Apply preventive materials to your children in order to prevent decay and preserve temporary teeth until they fall out.
Fluoride application for its benefits in preventing dental caries.
Application of a sealant to permanent teeth to prevent dental caries.
Implementing some early orthodontic procedures to prevent potential future orthodontic problems.
Treating all dental trauma that your children may have at any time.

Nitrous gas:
Nitrous gas or laughing gas is a mixture of oxygen and nitrous gas. When applied, the child feels relaxed, which helps him overcome the fear of dental treatment, and it is very safe and well tolerated by children.

General anesthesia
General anesthesia is recommended in the following cases: in uncooperative or very fearful children who have multiple dental treatments, or for a young child who is not able to cooperate well, and it is very useful for children with special needs such as autism and cerebral palsy.

Children’s treatments:

Pulpotomy: is the removal of the inflamed part of the pulp (the nerve), placing a filling in its place, and then restoring the tooth.

Root canal treatment: is the removal of the entire inflamed pulp (nerve), cleaning and filling of the canals, and then restoring the tooth.

Crowning the deciduous teeth: There is also a crowning of temporary teeth. After the nerve is removed, the tooth becomes vulnerable to fracture, so it must be crowned to preserve it until the time of its natural fall.

Space preservation: for one reason or another, we may have to extract a temporary tooth before its natural time of falling , so the distance left by this tooth must be preserved for the permanent tooth that will emerge in its place after years. This is achieved by placing space maintainer, either one-sided or two-sided.

Fluoride application: Fluoride is a gel-like substance applied to the teeth once every 6 months, which protects the teeth from decay.

Preventive fillings: They are a hard plastic material placed on the grinding surfaces of the posterior teeth, acting as a barrier to prevent  decay.
