J&J Dental Care is committed to improve your health. Our main emphasis is on prevention. Preventing disease is less costly and more rewarding than correcting problems once they occur. Total patient care is our treatment goal.
Paediactric dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence. Paediatric Dentistry focuses intimately on pediatric/adolescent growth and development, disease causality and prevention, child psychology and management, and all aspects of the highly-specialized Pediatric restorative techniques and modalities.
Paediatric Dentists work toward the maintenance of primary teeth (baby teeth) until they are naturally lost. This is due to the importance they serve in permitting children to chew properly and therefore maintain good nutrition, their role in speech development, and the maintenance of space for the eventual eruption of the permanent teeth.
Frenectomy is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far. It can refer to frenula in several places on the human body. It is related to frenuloplasty, a surgical alteration in a frenulum. Done mostly for orthodontic purposes, a frenectomy is either performed inside the middle of upper lip, which is called labial frenectomy, or under the tongue, called lingual frenectomy. Frenectomy is a very common dental procedure that is performed on infants, children, and adults. A similar procedure frenulotomy is where a tight frenulum may be relieved by making an incision in the tight tissue.
Space maintainer is an appliance that maintains the space by a prematurely lost tooth or space that will be filled by a tooth not yet erupted. Why need space maintainer? because the space of prematurely lost teeth usually change in the following 6 months period, sometimes a derease in space may occur within days or weeks which may cause loss of arch lenght, resulting in crowding of permanent dentition, impaction of permanent teeth, esthetic, malocclusion and other problems.
Crossbite is a form of malocclusion where a tooth (or teeth) has a more buccal or lingual position (that is, the tooth is either closer to the cheek or to the tongue) than its corresponding antagonist tooth in the upper or lower dental arch. Crossbite can occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and the sides of the mouth. This can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.
