Professional treatment options to prevent decay of teeth in a child?

Ans. Tooth decay is the most common dental problem in the children and some adults too. If it is left untreated it may cause some other dental problems. Therefore, it is necessary to prevent your child’s teeth from decay.

If you see any chalk like spot or brown spot over the teeth, or notice foul smell coming from the mouth, or swelling on the gums, then all these are indications of impending dental decay. You must take to your child to the dentist. The best way to prevent dental problem is to maintain the oral hygiene. Best dentists in Mumbai use various preventive treatment methods in dentistry, like:

  • Pits and fissure sealant: the occlusal surface of posterior teeth, i.e. the molars have some grooves, pits and fissures. This can be suitable surface for bacteria to grow, and cause decay. Pit and fissure sealants are tooth coloured resin material that have fluoride in it, these close off the vulnerable spots and prevent the infection from spreading or taking its roots.
  • Fluoride treatment: it is a preventive treatment. Fluoride is an essential mineral that has a property to re-mineralize. It protects the tooth from cavity.
  • Habit breaking: Some habits like tongue thrusting, thumb sucking or mouth breathing are very harmful for children. These cause so many dental problems. Therefore, the dentist will give some habit breaking appliances for this.

Space maintainer: If there is an early tooth loss, due to any reason, the nearby tooth occupy their space, leading to crowding and tooth decay. There are various space maintainers that are available, that are given to the child as per requirement.
