A child’s first dental visit should be scheduled within six months of the first tooth arrival or by a year of age. Without proper education regarding different factors which can promote tooth decay, very young children can establish dental disease early in life, requiring extensive dental treatment at a very young age. Educating parents and caregivers through anticipatory guidance on factors such as diet, oral hygiene, fluoride, trauma prevention, and non-nutritive habits is pivotal in the success of a child developing a healthy smile.
As a practicing Pediatric Dental Specialist for nearly 12 years ,Dr. Shifa Arshad has developed a few guidelines that seem to work best for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.
The use of inhalation conscious sedation, or nitrous oxide/oxygen, is a common and well known way to reduce a patient’s anxiety about dental treatment. Also known as “laughing gas”, this method involves having the patient breathe in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. with the state of the art MATRX sedation unit from USA, we are able to assure a safe and painless dental procedure for our clients. With our Dr.Shifa being a member of the SAAD (Society of Advancement of Anesthesia in Dentistry, UK), with more than 10 years of experience and have administered inhalation sedation for painless dental treatment. Her expertise has helped thousands of clients overcome dental fear.
The advantage of this method of sedation is that patients recover promptly after removal of the sedative and are able to leave the dental office unescorted, and never requires administration of drugs or hospitalization. We provide other forms of sedation apart from Conscious sedation, which include Sedation and General anesthesia, which is done by an experienced Pediatric anesthetist after complete evaluation of the patient
At we little, we help the children to remain comfortable & relaxed during their dental treatment & we strive to make dental care fun for every child.

"We Little is one of a handful of dental clinics that offers In-House General anesthesia that / sedation care for our children." These services are offered In-House by a highly qualified & experienced Pediatric Anesthetist after complete evaluation of the child.
Zirconia crowns are one of the most important and recommended types of crowns for children ,who wants aesthetic replacement for a natural teeth. Often, it is very difficult to differentiate between the zirconia crowns from the natural teeth. These crowns are biocompatible and the child can start functioning with the crowns like natural teeth within days of completion of the treatment. Zirconia crowns have longer life time and strength comparing to other forms of crowns and thus one of the best treatment options in the modern times for kids.
