We are always striving to ensure our younger patients are provided with a painless and comfortable experience when visiting our dental suite. Both parents and children who are under our care have been extremely satisfied with the dental care we have provided. Our team provide a caring and professional service for all children and our treatment fees are extremely competitive.

Management of rampant caries

Rampant caries can be described as a decay that spreads quickly, destroying the crowns of many erupted teeth. This results in a brown or black colour of the child’s anterior teeth. This is typically the case when the child is left with a bottle or fed during the night or just prior to sleeping. Although the condition is most often associated with high sugar content drinks, it can be possible to develop rampant caries from breast milk if feeding is carried out on demand. Management of this condition is based on preventive measures and parent education about the feeding of the child, brushing of the child 's teeth and preventive care for milk teeth.

Fissure sealants

Sealing is a procedure performed on healthy premolar and molar teeth, as the anatomic structure of their occlusal surfaces is conducive to bacterial activity as soon as the teeth erupt. Occlusal surfaces contain deep pits and fissures which are not properly brushed and are not rinsed by saliva. The unique structure of these teeth causes uncontrolled development of dental caries. To prevent dental caries, pit and fissure sealing is performed. This procedure is completely painless and comfortable for the child.

Fluoride therapy

This method consists of applying solutions, gels and fluoride varnishes to the teeth. The fluoride, which is released from these substances, integrates into the enamel and makes it more resistant to dental plaque acids, while increasing the hardness of the enamel. Fluoride also causes the remineralization (regeneration) of tiny enamel losses.

Dental Visit

Regular dental visits are essential for young children. Your child needs to see the dentist by age 2 or 3, when all the baby teeth have developed. Your dentist may want to take x-rays. This will help identify where decay may exist between the teeth. This will also show if the teeth are coming through in the correct way. Once your child has permanent molars, we may suggest sealing them to protect them from cavities. A sealant is a kind of plastic that is applied to the chewing surface of the molars. The plastic seals the tooth and makes it less likely to trap food and germs.

  • What some of our happy clients have to say

    I had been advised in New Zealand that I needed 2 expensive bridges. When our family decided to make a trip to Sir Lanka a friend recommended Dr Mayura as he had been pleased with the work done on his teeth. Besides the professional and safe practices the added bonus for me was the quick non-invasive cosmetic work on my front teeth that my New Zealand dentist had never suggested! So, I had the bridges completed at an affordable price and am so much happier with my smile .   The service Dr Mayura and staff provide is wonderful – they fitted my appointments around our 10 day itinerary, even organising all transport to and from his clinic and then when I returned home checked to find out how my teeth were.

    I visited Sri Lanka in July 2017 and was keen to get a “troublesome tooth” checked while I was there. In NZ, I had been advised to get a root canal or extraction/crown/bridge, all of which was unaffordable. I had a friend who had some dental work done in Sri Lanka and referred me to see Dr Mayura. I trusted my friend, visited Dr Mayura and was pleasantly surprised and reassured about my “troublesome tooth”. I didn’t actually need expensive work done, I had a clean, scale and polish and left feeling very happy and satisfied. Dr Mayura was very professional, his staff were friendly and welcoming and the clinic is spotless. I felt very comfortable and will visit him again if I am in Sri Lanka in the future. I would recommend my friends and family to pay him a visit too.

    I travelled from New Zealand to Sri Lanka for dental treatment in 2016 and chose Sri Lanka Cosmetic Dental as they were highly recommended to me. I was extremely satisfied with the service I received, the special care offered and the amazing value for money available when compared to dental costs in New Zealand.
