WHY IS KIDS DENTISTRY IMPORTANT?
People usually start teething when they are as young as 6 months old and start developing their set of primary ‘milk’ teeth. At the age of 6-7 years, kids start losing their milk teeth and the permanent set of teeth start emerging. Because the milk teeth will eventually start to fall off, some parents tend to ignore taking their kid to a dentist.
However, these milk teeth made the basis of developing permanent teeth. If proper care is not taken the problems can arise which will last a lifetime. In present years the cases of caries in children have grown manifold. Therefore, it is always advised to start taking care of your baby’s teeth at the beginning of their life. This includes setting Oral Hygiene routine and regular visits to the best Pediatric dentist in BTM Layout, Bangalore.

TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR KIDS
1. Root Canal Treatment In Milk Teeth
If you think your kid is too young to need root canal treatment, think again — there is no age limit for this treatment. If baby teeth have been injured, or if decay has advanced deep into the roots of your child’s teeth, a root canal treatment to stabilize teeth may be required.
Root canal treatment in HSR Layout removes the infection from the pulp, the living tissue that is found inside the tooth’s roots. The pulp contains the tooth nerves, so toothache is often an indication that decay has moved into the pulp.
Root canal treatment is the easiest procedure wherein instruments are used to clean the root canals of teeth followed by inserting a medication so as to maintain the teeth properly in the oral cavity.
2. Oral Habits In Children
Frequently children acquire certain habits that may either temporarily or permanently be dangerous to teeth and tooth-supporting structures. These habits are procured as a result of repetition. Some common oral habits seen in kids include thumb sucking, mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, lip biting, grinding of teeth, and nail-biting, etc.
Certain reminding appliances called habit-breaking appliances to assist the kid who is willing to quit the habit but is not able to do so as the habit has entered the subconscious level. They may be removable or fixed appliances.
