Pedodontics

It means "dentistry for children". It is a very important branch of dentistry, which focuses on overall good dentition and in turn favours good overall growth of the child.

Pedodontia encompasses:

  • Use of pit and fissure sealants on milk teeth in children prone to cavities.
  • Topical fluoride gel application in dental office. It is ideally done at the age of 3 years, 7 years, 13 years and 18 years.
  • Serial extraction: It is an intervention treatment plan which is used to correct discrepancy in jaw growth and teeth eruption and allow the new teeth to erupt in place.

Conservative/ Restorative Treatment:

This treatment modality is for decayed teeth. It includes fillings, tooth coloured fillings and root canal treatment.

It is of utmost importance to maintain the milk teeth in a good condition for the following reasons:

  • Allow permanent teeth to erupt in its natural position.
  • To not hamper speech of the patient.
  •  Psychological well being of the patient.

Orthodontics:

Preventive

It is indicated when a child has various habits like thumb sucking, lip biting, tongue thrusting etc. These habits cause the upper font teeth to procline, leading to speech problem, mouth breathing habits and poor esthetics.

Preventive orthodontics involves habit breaking appliances, counselling to the child and an attempt to take care of the cause.

Preventive orthodontics is also indicated when a child loses a milk tooth permanently due to cavity/infection/trauma and the permanent teeth have time to erupt. In such cases a removable/fixed "space maintainer" is used to maintain the space and allow the new permanent tooth to erupt in its proper place.

Corrective

This modality is used to correct irregular or malpositioned teeth, correct the bite and enhance the dental as well as general health of the patient.
