With this changing phase, kids learn different and new ways of eating, speaking, and smiling and this is the time when you should be aware and educated on how to take care of your child’s teeth and oral hygiene.
Pediatric dentistry is performed on kids, for problems related to teeth. It is a branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth to adolescence. If you have a kid who is in his/her growing, then you take your kid to the dentist for a regular checkup.

Everyone should have a pediatric dentist for a child, as having one and getting a regular checkup done is a good idea for kids’ oral health. A lot of activity keeps happening in a child’s mouth in their growing stage, till they attain 14-15 years. At Roots Dental Care, our expert dentists help to detect and avoid cavities at an early stage.
Taking care of a child’s mouth at an early stage, when they have no teeth is extremely important. The cleaning of the child’s mouth must be done twice a day, with a cotton or soft cotton wet cloth by running it over the gum pad, wrapped around the index finger. One of the most important and most avoided things is that, after feeding a kid with milk at night, just make sure that no milk is left on the teeth.
X-rays used in dental clinics are safer than any other X-rays, as they use minimal radiation. Our team of best dentists in Lucknow is more careful regarding this.
The first visit is an orientation visit where the child gets familiar and comfortable with the dental office, dental chair, and instruments. In the 1st visit, the dentist develops a rapport with the child and creates trust. The dentist will examine the child’s existing teeth for decay, and child bite. They will also look for any potential problems with the gums, jaw, and oral tissues. If indicated, the dentist will clean teeth and assess the need for fluoride.
Milk teeth play a very important role in a child’s mouth in guiding the permanent tooth to erupt at the place. Treating milk teeth is equally important as treating other ones. Cavities in kids’ teeth increase the bacteria in the mouth, which not only affects their oral health but also affects overall health. Treating them at the right time is extremely important.
If your child is 5 years old or younger with a cavity in his or her tooth, they fall under the category of early childhood cavities. They are also known as nursing bottle cavities. These appear suddenly and spread rapidly. It may start with one tooth and eventually spread all over.
Dental treatments for kids and adults are almost the same, it’s just that in the case of kids we try to handle them more delicately and carefully. At Roots Dental Care Lucknow, we try to provide patients with a most comfortable and friendly environment. With the help of local anesthesia and procedures for kid’s treatment, we make implants as painless and comfortable as possible.
