Pedodontics is a vast field that deals with the overall dental health of children including those with special healthcare needs. It comprises of not only the treatment aspects, but also education, motivation and prevention of dental diseases.
Our duty here is to treat the patient from their preschool age through their late teenage period and hence regular followup and maintenance is given special consideration.
In dentistry for children, we emphasize on prevention, which is he ultimate goal for all medical sciences. Hence, counseling of parents and children on diet and behaviour is done for the prevention of tooth decay. Our treatment procedures include filling of teeth, root canal treatment, crowns, cleaning of teeth, removal of teeth and minor surgical procedures. Our department also provides treatment done under sedation for children with special needs, like handicapped and highly uncooperative children
