Every tooth in a mans head is more valuable
than a diamond.

Most Popular Pediatric Dental Procedures
Stainless Steel Crowns
If your childs tooth is completely decayed and
is unfit for white fillings, then your pediatric
dentist will recommend Stainless Steel Crowns.
The SSCs are prefabricated and are cemented onto
the teeth to prevent further damage, until and
unless it is lost naturally.
Dental Cleaning
This procedure aims at thoroughly cleaning your
childs teeth to remove plaque and calculus
completely, which otherwise may cause cavities
and gum disease. Once the cleaning is done,
fluoride will be applied to safeguard the week
areas against decay.
Fluoride is incorporated into the enamel of teeth
in order to make it more resistant to decay.
Although fluoride is present in your toothpastes
and drinking water, it is always recommended
getting the fluoride procedure done for added
Mouth Guards
Sports related injuries are very common. Thus,
make sure that you protect your childs smile
with mouth guards while playing sports. Mouth
guards play an important role in protecting teeth
and gums from injury. American Dental
Association (ADA) recommends mouth guards to
children who specialize in the following sports -
basketball, weightlifting or wrestling, boxing,
hockey, gymnastics, lacrosse, martial arts,
racquetball, rugby, football, skiing and
snowboarding, skydiving, soccer, surfing,
skateboarding, volleyball and water polo.
