Children get tooth decay resulting in cavities that are often the result of a high sugar diet and poor teeth brushing techniques. When a cavity does occur your dentist will be required to perform a filling procedure. A filling is required to stop the cavity from deepening and affecting the nerve or root. If the cavity has reached the root then a pulpotomy, or root canal for baby teeth, may be required.
Pulpotomy (Root Canal for baby teeth)
Root canal for baby teeth, also called pulpotomy is carried out when tooth decay reaches the nerve of the baby tooth and includes the partial or complete removal of the infected pulp.
A Fissure Sealant is a protective plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to protect from decay. The coating seals the grooves on the surface of the teeth preventing any food particles or bacteria from collecting. The Fissure Sealant does not affect the normal chewing function of the teeth.
Children sometimes lose their teeth early and adjacent teeth may move into the space before the new permanent tooth erupts. A Space Maintainer is a custom made appliance made by the dentist that aims to maintain the space for the permanent tooth until it comes through. Although AL MANSOORI DENTAL CENTER highly recommends delaying the extraction of baby teeth if this is unavoidable then a space maintainer is vital.

Functional Orthodontic Appliances
Functional appliances are devices used to correct a disharmony between the upper and lower jaws and help influence the growth direction and development of the jaws in young patients. Commonly used to encourage the forward growth of an under-developed lower jaw, the functional appliance holds the lower jaw forward until the teeth, jaws and joints have adapted and the desired jaw position has been obtained.
