Wether if you are looking for a new pediatric dentist, preparing for your child’s first visit to our clinic or looking forward to your child’s routine checkup, our top priority at Dental One is to help children feel confident and to achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile into adulthood.
Dental One is a state-of-the-art clinic and our pediatric dental specialists ensure that your children are receiving the highest standard of dental care in Panama.
At Dental One we will also help you and your child develop a positive attitude about dental care. We do this by providing a relaxed, supportive and fun environment for both the child and the parents that eliminates uncertainties and helps your children understand the importance of taking care of their teeth while removing the fear.
Brushing and Flossing
One of the most important things you can do to help your child achieve a healthy smile is to teach them how to brush and floss properly. When you bring your child for a Pediatric dentistry in Panama, our paediatric dentists will review their oral hygiene routines, make recommendations on how these routines can be improved, and provide demonstrations to help them learn the correct ways to brush and floss.
We use dental sealants to help block plaque and food debris on certain areas of teeth and to prevent your child from developing tooth decay.
A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-coloured resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of teeth. By blocking out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant prevents decay and cavities. The dental sealant forms a smooth coating over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean teeth with normal brushing.
Dental sealants are frequently recommended for the permanent molars as soon as they come in, usually between the ages of 6 and 12 years.
Our paediatric specialists at Dental One use digital X-rays to closely examine your child’s mouth and quickly diagnose any developing problems before they can cause significant damage. Digital x-ray technology greatly reduces the amount of radiation needed; a day at the beach may project more radiation than a dental digirtal x-ray.
If your child feels too anxious or afraid at the dentist or if he or she have cooperation difficulties, we can coordinate for an anaesthesiologist to be present for the procedure and keep your child securely sedated.
Intravenous sedation is a form of conscious sedation that works by providing medication directly into the bloodstream to help your child relax and feel more comfortable while visiting our clinic. Before we provide your child with this treatment, the anaesthesiologist will talk with the parents and review their medical history, dental needs, and other relevant factors with you to determine if it really is the best choice to tend to your child.
Paediatric Dental Filling
Tooth decay, also known as caries, is one of the most common dental problems that children experience because of their eating and brushing habits.
Our experienced dentists can restore a decayed tooth with the help of dental filling. We will remove the decay in the tooth and replace it with aesthetic composite material filling to protect your child’s tooth and smile.
Age for Children Dental Visits
Your child should visit a paediatric dentist at the age of 6-months old. This visit helps establish your child’s confidence towards dentistry and also, instruct the primary care-givers on proper hygiene and balanced diet.
For children who are looking for a much more comfortable way of wearing their braces, at Dental One we offer Invisalign wich is a way to correct the alignment of your teeth without the traditional discomfort of regular braces. They also have the cosmetic benefit of being transparent.
They are easier to clean, require fewer dentist visits and users do not have any regular diet restrictions imposed when wearing traditional braces.
