    Fun Station

    The early years in a child's development are the best time for a child to learn about oral health and to develop a positive attitude about good dental habits. Fun station at Smiline dental hospitals is aimed for kids to learn about tooth care through fun dental activities. At Smiline, we teach children through enjoyable dental activities how important good hygiene and oral care are for a beautiful smile.

    Since children learn through play, we stimulate their interest with fun videos. We show them the right way to brush,floss etc through animated videos making it all a very interesting and fun way to learn. We also talk about how to improve their diet for healthy teeth..what foods to eat and what to avoid. For example, Carrots, apples, celery, and other crunchy fruits and vegetables help clean our teeth, milk and milk products help to keep the teeth strong etc. Overall we make the child's visit to Smiline, a very enjoyable one.

    Preventive Treatments

    WHY PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY?

    The primary reason is that infants, children, and young adults have special needs. Their developing bodies need a focus on preventive care even more so than with adults. Problems identified and treated in childhood and adolescence can effect lifetime of dental health.

    • Parent counseling

           Risk of caries in children can be reduced by following these :

      • Even before teeth begin to erupt, thoroughly clean your infant’s gums after each feeding with a wet wash cloth or gauze pad to stimulate the gum tissue and remove food.
      • When the baby’s teeth begin to erupt, brush them gently with a small, soft-bristled toothbrush.
      • Discourage thumb and pacifier sucking as soon as possible. Most children stop by age two but prolonged sucking can create dental problems.
      • Avoid putting the child to bed with a bottle or sippy cup containing anything other than water.
      • Limit foods containing sugar to mealtimes only.
      • Schedule a visit to the dentist between six and 12 months of age.
    • Fluoride Applications

       

      They are one of the best defenses against tooth decay! Dental Sealants and fluoride together can prevent almost all (95%) of all tooth decay! Fluoride is documented to be safe and highly effective. Only small amounts of fluoride are necessary for the maximum benefit.

       

      Proper toothpaste amount must be supervised, and other forms of fluoride supplements must be carefully monitored in order to prevent a potential overdose and unsightly spots on the developing permanent teeth.

       

      • Makes teeth more resistant to decay
      • Repairs tiny areas of decay before they become big cavities
      • Makes germs in the mouth less able to cause decay
    • Dental Sealants

       

      The chewing surfaces of children's teeth are the most susceptible to cavities. Sealants are applied to the tops or chewing surfaces of back teeth and are highly effective in preventing tooth decay. By placing sealants deep grooves will become easy to clean. Sealants can be applied on new and fully erupted teeth with open and or sticky grooves and fissures.

       

      Age ranges :

      • 3-4yrs : Primary Molar
      • 6-7yrs : 1st permanent molar
      • 11-13yrs: 2nd molars
    • Scaling and Polishing

       

      Cleaning of your child's teeth to remove plaque and calculus (bacteria) that can cause gum disease and tooth decay.

    • Mouth guards or Night guards

      Dental Implants have to be taken care in a similar manner as your natural teeth, brush, floss and get regular dental checkups.

    Corrective Treatments

    Primary teeth are more commonly known as milk teeth. These are the temporary teeth that make up a great proportion of your child's mouth until they are between 6 and 12 years.

    Why to fill baby teeth when they fall out anyway?

    While it is true that baby teeth do eventually come out, it is also true that they are important to a child in the meantime.

    • Even before teeth begin to erupt, thoroughly clean your infant’s gums after each feeding with a wet wash cloth or gauze pad to stimulate the gum tissue and remove food.
    • As they hold space for the permanent teeth to erupt in correct place.
    • Not only it is esthetically more pleasing but also allow your child to chew and speak properly.
    • Left untreated, dental caries can result in a broad range of functional impairments that have far- reaching implications for growth, development and school performance.

    Brushing Station

    Designed to help demonstrate the right way to brush and floss. Time spent on brushing your teeth is as critical as how often you brush.

    • Tips for brushing

      • Many people simply brush for a few seconds, spit, and place the toothbrush back in the cup. It is very important to spend at least 2-3 minutes brushing your teeth. This helps to ensure that the brush doesn't miss hard-to-reach or often neglected surfaces.
      • Use short, circular motions and brush at a 45-degree angle.
      • Brush all surfaces of your teeth, the sides and chewing surfaces, as well as the lower portions near the gum line.
      • Gently brush other areas of your mouth, including your gums, tongue and "roof" of your mouth. These can be prime areas for bacteria to hide.
      • Choose toothbrushes with soft, round-headed bristles to reach the small areas of your mouth.
      • Choose brushes with wide handles. This helps you control the toothbrush better.
      • You should replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months. Replace it - more often if you fall sick.
    • What is flossing

       

      Flossing is a proven method for loosening debris from hard-to-reach surfaces of your teeth and gum lines. Floss is available in different materials and colors, but essentially, it is a very thin cord you hold between fingers of each hand and insert between adjoining teeth. The cord, or floss, helps loosen debris by gently moving it up and down and back and forth between the teeth.

    • Advantages of flossing

       

      • Next to brushing, flossing is a highly effective method for removing plaque on tooth surfaces your brush can't reach very well.
      • Flossing helps increase blood circulation in your gums. Gum stimulation is one of the necessary means of keeping gum tissues healthy; strong gums are the foundation of your teeth.

       

      How Often To Floss:

      We recommend that you practice flossing once a day. Many people find it convenient to floss at bedtime. moreover, nighttime flossing helps to protect your teeth during sleep, when harmful plaque can do a lot of damage.

    • Flossing techniques

       

      One effective way is to break off about a foot of floss. Wrap one end of the floss a few times around the middle finger of each hand. You can use your forefinger and thumbs to maneuver the floss inside your mouth. We advise you to leave plenty of floss in between to allow you easy maneuvering inside the mouth.

       

      Press the floss in between two teeth and gently press downward (or upward if doing an upper set of teeth). Next, glide the floss up and down a few times against the surfaces of both teeth, carefully doing so at and below the gum line as well. Repeat this procedure for each tooth, taking up the slack when floss becomes worn or frayed.

    Education Station

    First Visit

    • When should your child first visit the dentist?

      It might be earlier than you think.

       

      Toddlerhood is a great time to instill good dental habits.

      "Baby teeth are important because they hold space for permanent teeth." Decay in baby teeth also increases the risk of decay in permanent teeth.

      At Smiline dental hospitals,we usually recommend that kids see a dentist for the first time by their first birthday, twice-yearly dental checkups and proper care at home are the keys to ensuring pearly whites throughout childhood.

       

      Primary teeth typically begin growing in around 6 months of age.

       

      In the first dental visit strange instruments, loud noises and new faces can scare the kids. If you begin taking your child to the dentist around the time the first tooth erupts, then they are probably too young to be nervous and at the same time with careful preparation (and plenty of prizes) a first trip to the dentist can actually be fun.

       

      We at Smiline dental hospitals are providing a complimentary first dental checkup for kids under 5 years of age

    • What's the best way to prepare your child?

       

      Before the first visit, ask the dentist about the procedures of the first appointment, so there are no surprises. Plan a course of action for either reaction your child may exhibit – cooperative or non- cooperative. Very young children may be fussy and not sit still. Talk to your child about what to expect, and build excitement as well as understanding about the upcoming visit. Bring with you to the appointment any records of your child's complete medical history.

       

      • Give your child a firsthand experience. Take your child with you for your next checkup to see you having your teeth examined and cleaned..
      • Timing is everything. Plan plenty of time so that the dental visit isn’t rushed, and make sure your child is well-rested before the visit so that he or she feels relaxed and comfortable.
      • Play around. Take turns being the dentist and the patient with your child. Examine each other’s teeth with a mirror or use your fingers to count each other’s teeth so that your child will be familiar with the feel of a dentist examination.

       

    • Follow these tips to put your child on the way to a bright and healthy smile.

       

      • Stop sucking habits as soon as possible as they lead to potential tooth malalignment.
      • Replace the brush every three months. Choose a soft, kid-size brush for them, children less than 8 years brush with parents' help twice a day.
      • Use no more than a pea-size amount of toothpaste on your child's brush. This offers adequate fluoride and protects the teeth.
      • Avoid starchy and sugary snacks. They stick to teeth and increase the risk of decay .As a precaution, rinse their mouth with water to wash away food particles and sugar after every feed.

    F.A.Q's

    F.A.Q's

    • What is plaque?

      At Smiline Dental Hospitals, our mission is to deliver the highest quality care along with unprecedented hospitality while keeping you relaxed and comfortable

    • What is calculus (TARTAR) ?

      Calculus is dental plaque that has mineralized. Calculus can form when plaque is not removed from the tooth surfaces. This plaque becomes old and eventually forms into calculus. Calculus can form above or below the gum line. The bacteria that sticks to calculus can cause gum disease (gingivitis) or periodontal disease. Calculus cannot be removed by brushing and flossing. A dental hygienist checks for calculus formation when you visit the dental office. It is removed with special instruments designed to adapt to the tooth surface affected without causing trauma to the soft gums.

    • What is gingivitis gum disease ?

      Gingivitis or gum disease causes the gums to swell and bleed easily. Gingivitis is often caused by lack of or improper oral hygiene. If your teeth and gums bleed when you brush and floss, you are at risk for gum disease. Untreated gum disease or gingivitis can advance to periodontitis. Plaque may grow below the gum line if not taken care. Plaque has bacteria that produce toxins and this irritates the gums and stimulates inflammatory response. In turn the tissues that support the teeth are broken and destroyed.

    • What is abscess ?

      Abscess of teeth is a painful infection at the root of the tooth or between gum and a tooth. Causes of abscess are tooth decay, trauma to the tooth such as when broken, or chipped or having gum diseases like gingivitis. These conditions allow bacteria to infect the center of the tooth called the pulp. If not treated this infection may spread from the root of the tooth to the bones supporting the tooth.

    • What is periodontal disease ?

      Periodontal disease affects the periodontium (the supporting structures of the teeth). The cause of this disease is multifactorial, but the presence of bacteria in plaque certainly plays a major role. The supporting periodontal structures begin to breakdown. This can mean that part of the bone that supports the teeth or the ligaments that hold the teeth securely in place are destroyed. This disease process is generally not reversible and may require treatment from a dental professional specializing in periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can develop as a result of poor daily plaque control (e.g. brushing and flossing). However, not everyone with poor brushing and flossing techniques will develop this condition. It is wise to visit your dental hygienist or dentist regularly in order to detect early stages of the disease and to prevent further damage.

    • What is cosmetic dentures?

      Cosmetic dentures are used to fill up the gaps caused by missing tooth or teeth or for an entire set of teeth. Partial cosmetic dentures are supported by the remaining gums and teeth and can be placed in place of single tooth or many teeth. There is a metallic clasp that fits the dentures into position. These clasps are out of view. Cosmetic dentures are designed to function and blend with the natural teeth ensuring patient’s comfort.

    • What are dental implants?

      Dental implants are a revolutionary alternative to people who have lost teeth due to accident, decay, disease etc. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns bridgework or dentures by a variety of means and are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible, which means that it is not rejected by the body.

    • What is cavity or tooth decay?

      Tooth decay or cavity is a common and persistent problem that many patients walk into our hospital with. It is often the decay that leads to holes otherwise known as cavities or caries in dental terminology. Cavities are a very common disorder in the world and more so in children and young adults.

    • How often should i see my dentist ?

      Systematic dental check-ups and having your teeth professionally cleaned are critical for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Most dentists recommend a dental check-up at least twice a year. Regular visits allow your dentist to check the teeth as well as soft parts of your mouth, including the tongue and cheeks. These examinations are important so the dentist can spot any infections, mouth conditions or even mouth cancer at the earliest stages.

    • What are dental x-rays?

      Dental x-rays are used to understand the damage of teeth and plan the treatment. Advances in dentistry over the years have led to the low radiation levels emitted by dental X-rays. Some of the improvements are new digital X-ray machines that limit the radiation beam to the small area being X-rayed, higher speed X-ray films that require shorter exposure time compared with older film speeds to get the same results, and the use of film holders that keep the film in place in the mouth (which prevents the film from slipping and the need for repeat X-rays and additional radiation exposure.
