An advocate of early preventative dentistry, Dr. Reddy believes in establishing a dental home for infants, toddlers, and adolescents. In accordance with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry children should have their first dental visit as early as 6 months or shortly after eruption of the first tooth. This establishes early intervention, developmental assessment, nutritional counselling and parental education to prevent early childhood tooth decay. It helps to keep parents informed as to the growth, development and proper oral health care of their children from the very beginning. It also makes our little ones get familiarized with the dentist, dental office and staff.
It is our goal to ensure that children and parents are educated and informed on the ways to care for these new teeth and the negative consequences of poor diet, nutrition, and dental care. We provide all services for children including X-rays, exams, cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatment, fillings, pulpotomies (root canal on baby teeth), crowns, space maintainers etc.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
Easy to apply,sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
