Childhood is a very important time to develop good oral hygiene and practices. Children need to be given dental care in a way they relate to.
Unlike adults, children have specific dental needs and need to be approached uniquely
Decay Prevention – In children who are prone to cavities, modalities like fluoride gel & fissure sealants serve effective means of prevention.
Braces – Sometimes children pick up habits like thumb sucking, lip biting etc. These habits cause malposition of teeth, which can lead to problems in speech and poor facial growth. Every child must be checked for the need of orthodontic treatment from the age of 6 years.
Stem Cells – Stem cells can be collected from milk teeth which are on verge of exfoliation. They are then sent for preservation & future use to stem cell banks.
