Teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis, is a preventive dental procedure performed by a dentist. It involves the thorough cleaning of teeth and gums to remove plaque, calculus, and stains that may have accumulated over time.
Pediatric extractions refer to the removal of one or more primary teeth from a child’s mouth.
A pulpotomy is a dental procedure performed on primary teeth with significant decay or trauma that has reached the pulp, which is the innermost part of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels. The objective of a pulpotomy is to preserve the affected tooth and alleviate pain while allowing it to remain functional until it naturally falls out.
Pediatric fillings are dental restorative procedures performed on the primary teeth of children. Just like in adults, pediatric fillings are used to repair teeth that have been affected by dental caries or minor fractures.
Dental sealants are highly beneficial for pediatric patients, especially for children with newly erupted permanent molars and premolars. As children’s teeth have deep grooves and fissures, they are more susceptible to trapping food particles and bacteria, making them prone to cavities.
Pediatric fluoride treatment is a preventive dental procedure used to strengthen the tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay in children. Fluoride is a mineral that helps to remineralize weakened enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria and sugars in the mouth.
A pulpectomy is a dental procedure that involves the complete removal of the pulp tissue from the root canal system of a tooth. It is typically performed on a primary tooth when the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or irreversibly damaged due to dental decay or trauma.
Dental trauma management
Pediatric dental trauma management involves the assessment, treatment, and care of dental injuries or trauma that occur in children. Dental trauma can result from various accidents or incidents, such as falls, sports-related injuries, or other types of trauma to the mouth and teeth.
