Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentristry is the branch of dentistry that deals with child tooth problems i.e. from infant to adolescent age. Managing child, addressing his and parents fears /apprehension is the major challenge. We consider every child uniqueness and mould our way to ensure he is all comfortable and cooperate with procedure.

The set of milk teeth completely erupt into oral cavity by two and half years. The first permanent tooth to erupt is at the age of six years. A child should depend on his milk teeth i.e primary set of teeth for almost 4-5 years until the permanent teeth completely erupts for his nutrition. Moreover this period of growing requires good nutrition.According to researchers it was proved that “A Healthy child is the person who have healthy set of teeth.”

Treatments which are offered by our Dr Sekhar’s dental Care & Implant centre to the children are :

  1. Restorative Fillings
  2. Root canal treatment for milk teeth & permanent teeth.
  3. Braces for malaligned teeth
  4. Preventive treatments like application of pit & fissure sealants & flouride varnishes
  5. Treatment for oral habits like thumb sucking, mouth breathing,tongue thrusting ,teeth grinding etc.
  6. Protective dental sport guards
  7. Space maintainers to preserve the space for erupting permanent teeth when milk teeth are removed at an early age
  8. Treatment for medically compromised/special children
  9. Interceptive Orthodontics: Preventive measures can be taken in the childhood to reduce the occurence of malalignment.


Premature loss of primary molars can cause a number of undesirable consequences including loss of arch length, insufficient space for erupting premolars and mesial tipping of permanent molars. Pulpectomy of primary molar teeth is considered as a reasonable treatment approach to ensure either normal shedding or a long term survival in instances of retention. The main objective of pulp therapy in the primary dentition is to retain every primary tooth as a fully functional component in the dental arch to allow for proper mastication, phonation, swallowing & preservation of space required for eruption of permanent teeth.

Partial pulpectomy or pulpotomy:

Pulpotomy is the process of removal of entire coronal inflammed pulpal tissue leaving vital radicular pulp.


  • Decayed primary molars with no clinical signs of pain, swelling and fistula
  • Decayed primary molars with no signs of radiographic perapical infection
  • Accidental pulpal exposure during cavity preparation


Pulpectomy is the process of extirpation of entire pulpal tissue( i.e, both coronal and radicular pulp)and disinfecting followed with resorbable filling material of preferred choice.


  • Primary molars with entire pulpal infection
  • Decayed primary molars with clinical signs of swelling ,abscess and fistula
  • Primary molars with evident radiographic periapical infection
  • Non vital teeth that are to be maintained in arch
  • Pus discharge from canals


Crown is actually a tooth shaped covering which is cemented to the tooth structure and its main function is to protect the tooth structure and retain the function.


  • Following pulpotomy or pulpectomy procedure
  • For teeth with developmental defects or large carious lesions involving multiple surfaces
  • Localised/generalised developmental problems. Ex: Enamel Hypoplasia


  • Full coverage of fractured or large carious tooth
  • Increased durability and longevity
  • It acts as semipermanent restoration which doesnt interrupt any natural process of tooth eruption.

There are wide variety of crowns avaliable for primary teeth. Some of them include stainless steel crowns, polycarbonate crowns, zirconia crowns etc..
