Different Paedodontic Treatments

Management of rampant caries


Rampant caries can be described as decay that spreads quickly, destroying the crowns of many or all of the erupted teeth. These affect the anterior teeth of the child and cause them to turn brown or black in colour.

 

This is typically the case when the child is left with a bottle and fed during the night or before sleeping. Although the condition is most often associated with drinking from a bottle, it is rare, but possible to develop rampant caries from breast milk if feeding is carried out on-demand management. This condition

is preventive from parent education about the feeding of the child and regular brushing of the child‘s teeth.

Fissure sealants
 

Sealing is a procedure performed on healthy premolar and molar teeth. The anatomic structure of their occlusal surfaces is conducive to bacterial activity as soon as your teeth erupt. Occlusal surfaces contain deep pits and fissures which are not properly brushed and are not rinsed by saliva. The unique structure of these teeth is conducive to bacterial activity and causes uncontrolled development of dental caries.

To prevent dental caries, pit and fissure sealing is performed. This procedure, performed by a dentist, is completely painless and comfortable for the patient.

Fluoride Therapy


This method consists of applying solutions, gels, and fluoride varnishes to the teeth. The fluoride, which is released from these substances, integrates into the enamel and makes it more resistant to dental plaque acids while increasing the hardness degree of the enamel. Fluoride also causes remineralization (regeneration) of tiny enamel losses.

 

Dental Visits

Here are 3 reasons to take your child for regular dental check-ups:

> You can find out if the cleaning you do at home is working.
> Your dentist can find problems and fix them right away.
> Your child can learn that going to the dentist helps prevent oral problems and also learn more about oral health.

 

In most cases, a check-up every 6 months will let your child’s dentist tackle small problems early on. Your child needs to see the dentist by the age of 2 or 3 when all the deciduous teeth (milk teeth) have appeared.

 

Your dentist may want to take x-rays to show decay between teeth. They will also show if teeth are appearing in the right orientation. Your child’s dentist may talk to you about fluoride use to ensure better oral health.
 

Once your child has permanent molars, your dentist may suggest sealing (fissure sealants) them to protect them from cavities if they have deep molar crevices. A sealant is a kind of plastic that is put on the chewing surface of the molars, the plastic seals the tooth and makes it less likely to trap food and germs.
