Pediatric Dentistry FAQ

In Essex and London, UK

When should my child visit a pediatric dentist?
It is never too early to begin thinking about your child’s dental health.  If you have concerns about the way your child’s baby teeth are coming in, don’t hesitate to make an appointment.  As soon as teeth are in, you can start with check-ups.  We recommend children undergo a thorough dental check-up and cleaning at least semi-annually.

What is a dental sealant?
A dental sealant is a tooth-colored “mini-filling” used to stop small cavities in the permanent back teeth molars. Dr. Basrai can fill in starter signs of decay quickly and in one visit with plastic sealant material.  Sealants may also be used in places where teeth are particularly grooved to prevent any decay.  Once sealants are in place, children have an extra level of protection from bacteria-causing decay.

Why are dental visits so important for children?
Not only do regular dental visits ensure your child is on the right track with teeth development, it is also is a tool for prevention.  Any signs of decay can be quickly uncovered and treated before they become bigger problems.  Regular and early dental visits help children become educated about dental health and empower them to take responsibility for the care of their teeth and gums.  Regular cleanings also help reach deeper areas of plaque that they cannot reach on their own.  Another key facet of pediatric cleanings is the essential fluoride treatment to strengthen teeth and assist in cavity prevention.

How can I help my child stay cavity-free?
First make sure your child is following regular brushing, flossing and rinsing schedules.  Once they get into a habit on their own, it will be that much easier to follow.  Another thing you can do is regulate your child’s sugar intake and limit snacking between meals.  Thirdly, make sure you take your child to the dentist at least twice a year for optimum oral health.
