Pediatric Dentist in Chhattisgarh
Your child’s oral health can impact their smile for the rest of their life. Great habits, good oral hygiene, and access to early preventative care with a children’s dentist can get your child off on the right start.
A pedodontist is a licensed pediatric (kids) dental specialist. These dental experts have an additional 4 years of formal dental training after four years of dental school. A licensed kids’ dentist will specialize in everything from behavior management to treating the anatomical differences found in a child’s rapidly growing mouth.
At SKR Dental Clinic, our team consists of pediatric dentists as well as other specialists such as orthodontists to provide the comprehensive care that your developing child needs.
Your Child’s First Exam
Both our pedodontists and orthodontists recommend early intervention, beginning with children’s dental screenings at a young age. Pediatric Dentists and dental experts recommend bringing your child in for a dental exam by age 1, or when their first tooth erupts (whichever comes first)
During your child’s first visit with our kids dental specialists, we’ll perform a thorough evaluation of their oral development and screen for risk factors. Older children may need to be checked for issues such as tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, or atypical speech patterns.
Our pediatric dentist will tailor the appointment to your child’s comfort level. If they’re cooperative and comfortable, we may be able to go ahead and complete a cleaning (on older children) and take a few small X-rays to evaluate tooth development.
Childhood treatment include:
- Limited time in braces later on
- Adult teeth guided into a healthier eruption alignment
- Improved oral growth patterns
- Healthier jaw width and length
- Reduced need for surgical intervention
- Prevention of expanders or other growth modification
- Enhanced oral function, speech, and diet
Oral Habits to Watch Out For
Your child’s oral habits and function can significantly impact their overall orofacial anatomy.
For instance, if your child still uses a pacifier, a training cup, or sucks their thumb on a regular basis, it can permanently alter the shape of their palate (roof of their mouth) and how those teeth tilt out of alignment. In turn, their tongue may not position itself correction during swallowing, resulting in a tongue thrust. These external factors can permanently impact their growth patterns as your child matures into a teen and then an adult.
Much of a child’s oral development is dependent on things like genetics, habits (including thumb or finger sucking), tongue movement, and eruption patterns of teeth. Myobrace for kids is a type of early interceptive treatment that can guide teeth and jaw growth into healthier, better-aligned relationships.
Myobrace helps correct crooked teeth by guiding them into a more proper alignment as they erupt into place. Problems like gaps or crooked teeth, crowded teeth, and misaligned teeth can be intercepted during your child’s oral development and before they cause bigger orthodontic issues. That way if they need fine-tuning later on, their orthodontic therapy will be less complex and more streamlined.
Utilizing the latest in dental laser technology, our dental specialists are able to provide minimally invasive, advanced care techniques for patients of all backgrounds.
Laser assisted dentistry is extremely safe and effective. With the use of medical-grade dental lasers, we’re able to treat both hard and soft tissues, offering a wide variety of therapies that boast better results and faster recovery times.

Frequently Asked Questions
You can clean a Myobrace appliance with room temperature tap water, antimicrobial soap, and a soft toothbrush. If you notice buildup accumulating on the appliance, soak it in an effervescent denture cleanser to loosen the debris, then rinse it clean before wearing it again.
For Myobrace therapy to be effective, your child will need to wear it as prescribed. In most cases, the easiest thing to do is to have your child wear their Myobrace during the day but taking it out during meals, then sleep in it overnight. Some children do not need to wear their orthodontic appliance for very long. The key is to follow your recommended care plan, as these wear instructions will determine how well the overall process works.
Myobrace works without braces to help guide your child’s oral development and tooth positioning well before fixed orthodontic appliances (braces) are even recommended. Your child may still require orthodontic treatment at a later stage. However, the extent of the treatment will be considerably lesser.
