 MY CHILD IS HAVING THUMB SUCKING HABIT, NAIL BITING HABIT ETC. WILL THIS EFFECT HIS/HER TEETH? WHAT SHOULD I DO IF HE/SHE IS NOT LISTENING TO US?
 
Yes! Such habits directly affects the child’s teeth as well as child’s upper jaw and chin, which may make his face look ugly. Take your child to a good Pedodontist (Child Teeth Specialist) who gives habit breaking appliance to your child and make him look good in future and he/she can avoid the need of Orthodontic (Braces) treatment.

 Should I Take my Child for a dental visit every six months and why? How will it benefit my child?
 
Advantages of visiting the Pedodontist (Child Teeth Specialist) every 6 months from age 3 years to 14 years are:-

1) Pedodontist keeps a check on child’s growing jaws, lips and teeth, and can redirect its position to achieve good facial looks and avoid the need of Orthodontic(Braces) treatment in future.

2) Pedodontist advises you, which milk tooth is going to fall off now, so you can keep a check at that region to avoid permanent tooth coming from a wrong direction from below.

3) Pedodontist keeps a check on the child’s teeth, and any cavity developing, can be stopped and filled in the first layer only and avoid it becoming deep and painful for your child.

4) Child gets motivated for proper dental care right from his early age and becomes dental friendly.
