Dentistry For ChildrenLaying The Foundation For Bright And Healthy Smiles
Your child’s oral health is precious, and a key factor in their overall well-being. When it comes to your little ones, it is only natural to want the finest quality of treatment and comfort. At Dentzz, we assure just that. From habit counselling to monitoring their overall dental development, our panel of well-established pediatric dentists ensure your child's journey to perfect oral health is a happy and memorable one.
We understand that children tend to associate dental visits with feelings of fear and anxiety. Therefore, we carefully curate every step of our approach to guarantee a wholesome and positive experience for your child. We emphasise preventative and proactive dentistry so that your child does not have to undergo any major dental work in the future.
Readjusting Our Approach
Tending to a child is drastically different from treating an adult. Children come with their own set of apprehensions which we take into account. Our dentists and staff are trained to break the ice with each child, assuring they are at ease before we begin their check-up or treatment. We start by assessing the children’s cooperation level on that day, incorporate creative solutions like storytelling to engage them, and work towards making their visit as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
Ignoring fundamental dental care in the formative years can lead to serious complications in the future. To curb this, we heavily advocate preventive dentistry. We believe children shouldn't have to experience the pain of tooth decay, damage or sensitivity to warrant a dental visit when they can be avoided by precautionary measures. Our pediatric dentists administer the procedure using fluoride gel, as it increases the inherent strength of the enamel of the tooth, thereby decreasing the chances of decay. We recommend children get this treatment every 3-6 months. We also conduct a simple 10-step procedure to protect the teeth from cavities and decay. Additionally, we encourage at-home dental practices by educating both the child and the parents about proper brushing techniques.
It is a common misconception that milk teeth don't need dental attention as they are meant to fall off and give way to permanent teeth. However, this is far from the truth. Milk teeth are natural space maintainers, which are vital to a child's oral maturation. They are essential in developing the child's occlusion, for chewing, and for speech development. If infected before their time of exfoliations, milk teeth can cause a lot of damage. At Dentzz, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments, which ensure total infection control that prevents the decay from percolating into the permanent teeth.
Restraint On Antibiotics
We hold very strong views on the abuse of antibiotics. We promise to never prescribe antibiotics or any medications unless absolutely necessary. Unwarranted medications come with several side effects, and we would never jeopardize your child's well-being since most infections can be treated effectively at the source (teeth).
Strict Sterilization Protocols
We follow the most rigorous sterilization processes with utmost precision in order to prevent secondary and cross infections. Our standards of sterilization are in accordance with international protocols.
Decay Control In A Growing Child’s Jaw
Teeth can often decay to a point where basic remedial measures, like cavity fillings, may not suffice. If unchecked, the infection breaches the hard structures of the teeth and reaches the pulp of the tooth, which has a network of blood vessels. For adults, decay at this stage would require a root canal treatment. For children, however, this can be treated by a simple pulpectomy procedure followed by a crown that restores the shape and function of the tooth.
Indirect Pulp Capping, Fillings, Fluoride Releasing Fillings
Apart from infection control, our preventative measures stop the decay of teeth. Filling the teeth with white, tooth-friendly, fluoride-releasing materials prevents the decay from reaching the core of the tooth (pulp). This not only spares your child from unnecessary pain but also maintains the tooth's inherent strength through the fluoride release.
Aesthetics For Little Teeth
Rampant decay in the front teeth can hamper a child's self-image and confidence. At Dentzz, we design a brand-new smile for your child by rectifying the damage done by decay. This process also helps with speech development.
Rectifying habits like thumb sucking and mouth breathing at an early stage can prevent crooked teeth, and subsequently eliminate the need for braces altogether. We recognize conditions like sleep apnoea, which are the root cause of habits such as mouth breathing. While mouth breathing may not appear to be a critical problem, it actually affects a child's sleep pattern, the regulation of oxygen in their system and their concentration level in school. Counselling parents about these habits is a part of our pre-orthodontic approach to ensure healthier smiles for children.
Children are prone to minor accidents, given their active nature. Fracturing the front teeth, permanent tooth falling out or even chipping off of teeth can be traumatic experiences for children. Our pediatric dentists are well-equipped to promptly deal with such situations. We aim to either place the fallen tooth back into the jaw or build the bone structure in a seamless manner so that the child is never self-conscious of the lost tooth.
Our panel of highly trained orthodontists provide fixed, semi-fixed and removable orthodontic care for children of all age groups, starting as early as 4 years of age for the correction of non-aligned teeth. While parents tend to reserve orthodontic care for their children until their permanent teeth erupt, we believe in straightening crooked teeth for our young patients of all ages.
Tending to a child is never the same as tending to an adult. Children come with their own set of apprehensions which must be taken into account while treating them. Communication is the key here. Our team of pediatric dentists have been trained to communicate effectively with children and put them at ease. One of our aims is to educate them on the importance of oral hygiene and good habits.
Dentistry That Makes A Difference
Been blown away by how professional it is, the cleanliness, everything is sterilized. It's a wonderful centre. It's been a lot of fun to see the quality and the first class way that I have been treated.
What I really love about this place is that, they really attend you with very personal care, they customise things for you. Doctor Karishma has given me a beautiful and bright smile. Hats off to dentzz and thank your for giving me a nice bright smile. I would want you all to come visit dentzz and get a perfect smile.

I have always hated going to the dentist. Dr. Karishma at dentzz was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and gentle. I went to have my teeth cleaned, an experience I usually dread..i won't say it was pleasurable because that would be a stretch but the clinic was bright and soothing, her manner was warm and caring and my teeth look and feel great! They have state of the art technology, modern equipment and gentle bedside manner. I have already recommended dentzz to five friends and family members and I ve promised to go for my regular check ups!
I was so conscious of my smile earlier, until I got my teeth done with these Magicians - Dr Shantanu and Karishma. I am so much more confident and I smile with ease now.The ambience at Dentzz is very relaxing and soothing, with the soft music playing in the background, its almost like being in a lounge, whilst I am being grilled, with no pain.The result – I am a new laughing Buddha, amongst my family and friends.
