Pediatrics

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), dental caries, or tooth decay, is present worldwide in 60-90% of school age children. Patterns are noticeable of greater incidence in western countries, probably owing to a greater sugar content in the average diet. But although this figure may seem startling high, dental caries is so easily controlled and minimized by lower diet sugar levels, judicious use of fluorides at home and at the dentist’s, and simple regular dental check-ups and cleaning.

Fluoride Application
Fluoride is a major component in the prevention of childhood dental caries. This is because fluoride alters the molecular structure of the tooth, making it more resistant to acid attack and decay. However, children require the right balance of fluoride treatment. Too much fluoride can be problematic and lead to fluorosis.

Sealant Application
Dental sealants are used to protect teeth from decay and are appropriate as early as the first tooth erupts.
