Is children’s dentistry important?
Also known as pediatric dentistry (or simply paedodontics), it is a discipline of dentistry that is concerned with the dental health of children. Most people are unaware of the importance of cultivating good dental habits right from a young age.
We advise parents to introduce their children to regular dental visits in order for early-identification of dental issues and ensure proper jaw and teeth growth. This will reduce the likelihood of oral complications in the later part of their lives.
How much do dental treatments for children cost?
This is a form of cleaning procedure that ensures that the teeth is thoroughly cleaned. Prophylaxis is a crucial preventive treatment that stops the progression of oral diseases (e.g. gingivitis and tooth decay) in children.
Fillings (Baby Teeth)
Fillings are used to replace tooth structure that has been damaged by decay, abrasion and acid erosion. The dentist will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill it up with a filling material. The closing of gaps with fillings would prevent bacteria from infiltrating the tooth, which helps to prevent further decay. We have a range of fillings made from different materials, as no one type of filling is best for everyone. Our dentists will assess your child’s condition and provide you with more details during the consultation.
Extractions (Baby Teeth)
Tooth extraction refers to the removal of a tooth from the mouth. The need for extraction arises when a tooth is severely decayed or beyond repair.
