Pediatric Airway

Pediatric Airway oriented orthodontics

        We advise our parents against the notion that a child should be examined and treated for irregular teeth/braces after the child turns 13 which yet times would be too late. There is enough evidence out there that crooked teeth/jaws manifest as early as three years if the child is suffering from constant allergies, stuffy nose, mouth breathing, adenoids/tonsils etc. They get worse and complicated as the child grows. Identifying and addressing them early would put the child on right/optimum facial growth trajectory with relatively simple and effective treatment strategies. So we strongly advocate periodical examinations right from the age of three for teeth/jaw irregularities. Maxillary/Madibular expansion (Rapid Maxillary Expansion RME) appliances, 2/4 appliances (Degainer mechanics) , growth medication appliances (Face mask therapy, twin block appliance) , comprehensive fixed orthodontics (Metal/ceramic braces and self ligating braces) are some of the modalities we use.



     Myobrace is the newer technique to have straight teeth without braces in children. It is absolutely painless, completely removable , comfortable and children of all age groups love to wear this. Contrary to the popular belief that crooked teeth in children are genetic in origin, recent research provides enough evidence that crooked teeth are due to improper breathing (Mouth breathing, snoring, sleep apnea etc), habits (Incorrect myofunctional habits) like lip-sucking, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking and open mouth posture. These improper functions happening in the face restricts the growth of the jaws thus resulting in small jaws, crooked teeth, prominent front teeth. Myobrace system aims at correction of these improper habits which are the base reasons behind the development of bad bite, crooked teeth , facial imbalance and breathing disorders so that teeth will get straightened automatically making use of the inherent growth potential in the child in a biological approach rather mechanical approach (Fixed braces). Minimal day time wear of 1-2 hrs along with overnight wear and series of activities (exercises) which are designed and tailored in a systematic manner helps in the correction of the issues in a well compliant child.

This is regarding my son's Tongue tie surgery (When we actually went for root canal treatment)Hi, I am Santosh and my wife Rohini. My Son Avijith (Five Year old) was suffering from cavities since an year. We went to nearby clinic first and they did half treatment and suggested to visit pediatric dentist. That is when my wife started searching internet and found "Childrens Dentistry" with positive reviews. So we visited Doctor Kranthi Garu.As soon as he spoke with my son and had a look at his teeth with all the deep cavities,Doctor informed that he has to perform four root canals and two fillings.Apart from this, he explained about how my son is suffering from tongue-tie.Because of tongue-tie, he was unable to clean his teeth with his tongue soon after eating.And we already noticed that my son was facing difficulties in pronouncing some words like letters "Da and Dha / Sa and Sha (Hindi)". But we thought that it was because of his small age but now we understood the problem and took a while to digest the news and little more time to share it with my parents and in-laws.Treatment:I was wondering how my son could bear the root canal for not one but four teeth.But, here are the things I liked.1. Ceiling has TV and they played the cartoons my kid wanted so that when he lie down, he can watch tv to deviate his focus from the treatment.2. Laughing gas inhale to make him comfortable and I immediately searched google to see if it is safe to inhale during treatment and "It's safe".3. Talking to my son, giving high five when my son was co-operating. Took his time to make my son comfortable and also multiple sittings.4. My son also supported well considering his age. We also took him to games after each and every sitting and he enjoyed eating ice creams after the treatment.5. We visited the clinic every couple of days because of multiple sittings.6. After all the dental treatments and just before dussehra holidays, we decided to go for surgery so that my son will have ample time to recover at home.Finally, the tongue tie laser surgery that took 1 hour (Including anesthesia, comforting my son, etc etc)7. My son suffered pain for next two days (He was silent when paracetamol was given)Current progress:1. Its been three weeks now. We are all happy with the outcome.2. We are continuing tongue exercises still. We clearly noticed the change in his pronunciation and tongue movements.3. We all started following good oral care practices.

We visited Doctor kranthi Kumar for my 5 years kid who is suffering from cavities and tooth decay. We visited few doctors in Chennai but not so happy with the treatment plan they advised and misguided too. Usually my kid was not so supportive to any kind of treatment but doctor make him more comfortable and dealt with him in such a way to respond and support to the doctor. My kid loved the ambience and friendly nature of doctor and he happy to co-operate with the doctor during the entire treatment stages.Doctor explained the treatment plan well and so supportive to the questions we have. We visited this hospital multiple times and every times doctor has treated my son with good care. Thanks for the staff for their support.I am sure we will strongly recommend to my relatives and friends about this hospital.

We made visit for our 6 yr old child's tooth ache and cavity. We were suggested to go for cavity filling and extraction of damaged tooth..the whole process was smoothly managed..hygiene and safety maintained at the clinic of top notch which is of prime importance dealing with oral care in the time of pandemic or otherwise also. Child was made very comfortable during the treatment process. Dr. Kranthi Kr Reddy has very good skill in pacifing the kid and making the kid very comfortable during the process. We thank you doctor for the whole process of treatment...The treatment is good and recommended for anyone looking for children dental need.

We had a great experience during our dental visit today. We brought in our nervous 5 year old. Doctor and staff made sure she was comfortable and happy, and the treatment recommended went quickly and smoothly! I highly recommend this clinic to anyone. They are very professional, clean, and most importantly very kind. Much better than any place I’ve been to in USA. Thank you all again
