Some most common questions asked by parents to dentist
Q- Milk teeth are not important as they are going to “fall down anyway”.
A-Not all milk teeth will fall down at age of 6 or 7. Only the front teeth (incisors) will fall at this age. Molars or the behind teeth which are most commonly used for chewing will fall at around 10 years of age.
Q- Baby teeth can’t get cavities or treatment is not necessary.
If you have a tooth, it can get cavities. If left untreated, a cavity in a baby tooth may cause the tooth to become infected or abscessed, which can cause pain and swelling,” In addition, the permanent tooth is forming right at the ends of the root of the baby tooth, so any infection in the baby tooth can damage the permanent tooth. In fact, it is found that children who had cavities in their baby teeth were three times more likely to develop cavities in their adult teeth. kids dental health is completely ignored in such cases.
Q- Is brushing milk teeth necessary?
A – yes and absolutely. Brushing twice daily is necessary
Q- Will brushing reverse the decay?
No. dental decay is irreversible and tooth is the only organ which cannot heal itself. Only a professional can help your child.
Q- Why visit a pediatric dentist and not a general dentist for my child’s teeth problems.
A pediatric dentist has a specialized degree in treating dental problems related to children. Along with that a pediatric dentist can also foresee and prevent future dental problems such as crooked teeth. kids dental health is best understood by pediatric dentist only.
Q- At what age should my child visit a pediatric dentist?
A. Ideally a child should visit a pediatric dentist at 1 year of age.

Their team visits you with a portable dental chair and dental unit that is equipped for all types of dental procedures.

They have been consistently providing dental check up and fluoride treatments at school levels for all the children. Other services available at Dental Park are braces, preservation of stem cells and diet counseling.
Diet counseling does not include simply eliminating sweets and chocolate. It is customized according to every child with the help of a high end software which is used to determine the future risks of decay as well.
