A common Myth

Is there a need to get the teeth treated in children when they are going to be replaced with permanent teeth anyway? 

Short answer is –YES 


  • A child’s primary teeth usually last till the age of 13 years and these are the primary years when nutrition also needs utmost attention. A set of healthy teeth in a child will ensure that that the child eats well.
  • A set of healthy teeth teaches a child during their foundation years to maintain a good oral hygiene. The habit of maintaining good oral hygiene once formed stays with the child for life. Along with the habit of maintaining a good oral hygiene, the child also learns about healthy foods and what all foods to avoid in order to maintain a healthy set of teeth.
  • The primary teeth also guide the teeth to erupt in the right direction. If there is infection in the primary teeth which travels to the bone, it can deflect the teeth away from the path of eruption.
  • A set of healthy primary teeth helps in speech and in developing healthy jaw muscles and jaw bones
At what age should a child see the dentist?
  • The child should visit the dentist at about 6 months when the first set of teeth erupt or at the age of 1.
  • We normally do a general check and see if the teeth and gums are healthy. We advise parents how to care for a child’s teeth.
Is it common to see children with caries these days?
  • Children are being seen more commonly in dental practices these days than ever before. This is due to the refined diet and change in the eating habits. . Factors such as high sugar intake, lack of oral hygiene, lack of fluoride exposure, and enamel defects are some of the major factors responsible for the development of early childhood caries.
What does early childhood caries look like?
Childhood Caries
  • Early childhood caries are cavities that most often show up on a child’s upper front teeth but can also affect other teeth.
  • The caries can first be seen as white spots near the gum line.
What is nursing bottle caries?
Nursing bottle Caries
  • Nursing bottle caries typically affect the upper front teeth, but may affect other teeth too.
  • Tooth decay in infants and very young children is often referred to nursing bottle caries. This happens when sweetened liquids or those with natural sugars (like milk, formula, and fruit juice) cling to an infant’s teeth for a long time. Bacteria in the mouth thrive on this sugar and make acids that attack the teeth.
Is there a pediatric dentist available at your clinic?

Your first consultation will be with Dr Sajili Mittal who is the head and in charge of the dental clinic. She has training and years of experience in handling child common teeth problems. However, in case you specifically want to see the pediatric dentist, you can communicate that at the reception and we can directly schedule your appointment with the specialist.

Preventive Steps

  1. It is advised that the bottle feeding is weaned off by the age of 1. The child should also be weaned off any sugary drinks slowly.

  2. The child’s formula feed needs to stop by the age of 1 and the focus should be more on chewing foods. The child should be encouraged to feed on his/her own.

  3. Apart from tooth brushing twice day, regular visits to the dentist and good eating habits are a must.

  4. It is highly recommended that when the first sets of teeth appear, children go through fluoride treatment and sealants.

  5. Fluoride treatments help in reducing caries and can be safely carried out in the dental office. These can be done in patients younger than 6 years old as well and your dentist is the right person to assess the need for fluoride application in younger children.

  6. Sealants prevent the permanent teeth from getting caries as newly erupted teeth specially molars and premolars are highly susceptible to caries due to the deep fissures present in the newly erupted teeth.

Great experience

I got the periodontal surgery done by Dr Sajili. Initially I was a bit apprehensive about the procedure, but the Dr made the entire process very easy and smooth. She was very patient in explaining everything and very supportive in the post surgery follow-ups.

Most Ethical Dental Surgeon

“Visited Dr. Sajili Mittal’s clinic a few years ago after having a number of “not good” experiences. Was a bit scared too initilally. But the way my problem was handled at her clinic made me so at ease, comfortable and relaxed.

At Dr. Sajili Mittal’s clinic, everything is explained in detail & giving all the possible options to be decided by the patient himself. Since my first visit, I never felt uncomfortable and always feel free to discuss even the smallest possible issues. Besides being a good dentist, Dr. Sajili Mittal, is a very good human being too. She makes her patients comfortable, understands their issues and accordingly suggests possible and affordable options ( NOT creating fear factor).

Besides, being highly experienced and knowledgeable, Dr. Sajili Mittal is a person of ETHICS and MORALITY which is rare to find these days in our society. My Best Wishes to Dr. Sajili Mittal.”

Best Root Canal Treatment by Dr. Sajili


“Every experience I’ve had in the dentist’s chair has been miserable, until now. Citylife Dental has the most compassionate team of dentists I’ve ever seen. They understand (and therefore can eliminate) fear and pain. The work they’ve done on my teeth which includes root canal, scaling and whitening has been top quality. Add to that their ability to calm the nervous wreck in the chair and you have a combination of skills that can’t be beat. I’m no longer afraid, and that’s pretty much a miracle. I can’t recommend these guys enough.”

Brilliant Citylife Dental


My experience at Citylife Dental was very good.
Dr. Sajili is a very professional dentist and made sure I understood everything. Her patient handling and education skills are excellent. She is a confident doctor and knows the art of dentistry well. The staff at Citylife Dental was humble and courteous.
After I was done I expected a very large bill but the prices were nominal.
Even though I don’t like going to a dentist , but Citylife Dental made it a good experience.
Next visit due after 6 months!

Best Dentist for NRI’s in New Delhi


Well to start with I met Dr.Sajili and her team 10 years ago when i was planning to move abroad. It started with basic gum issues and root canal.

Now i am an NRI but whenever i visit India make sure my dental issues are handled properly. Thanks goes to Dr. Sajili for her warm, affectionate, caring and patient nature. A professional touch on the top is what everyone gets for sure. She is intelligent, confident, has a sound experience in her specialisation and makes sure the patient in contented at the end of the treatment. Well as far as her clinic is concerned she does not compromise on quality and hygiene.AT work front she even follows her patients after the treatment is complete for their concern if any. I was also given 2 implants by Dr. Sajili which are very much intact as i follow her advice regularly. Will recommend Citylife Dental, Yojana Vihar for overall satisfaction under the leadership of Dr. Sajili.

Good luck and Best wishes always

Very satisfied with Dental treatment

My wife Dr Roma Raj and I just walked into Citylife Dental for a complete dental check-up, soon after from the US. We found the clinic’s hygiene and comfort levels at par with any good clinic in the US. The doctor’s mannerisms were so good that we signed up with Citylife for our complete dental treatment plans and since then we have felt very satisfied with the treatment, rates, punctuality and professional approach of their team to our dental problems.
There are no short cuts in this clinic.
May God keep the healing touch of this centre alive for years to come.

One Stop Dental treatment for whole family

I didn’t take any treatment, but accompanied my niece and my father-in-law to Citylife Dental, and I believe that they really liked the treatment and benefited out of it. I would really like to comment about the quality of their resident specialist dentists, I feel that they are empathetic & ethical dentists, which I feel every doctor should be. They give sincere advice on ideal treatment options regardless of commercial considerations.

Very Caring Dentist


I came across city life dental for dental problems off and on for last 6 years. Though i live in west Delhi and clinic is located in east Delhi via Karkardooma metro station on blue line. From there taking shared e rickshaw up to red light crossing of Ashoka Niketan to reach A 85 Yojana Vihar made my life easy from transportation point of view. I visited this clinic first time in 2013 but the atmosphere, behavior, care, personal and detailed attention looking into minute details of health and history of patient is routine in this clinic. They treated me as if they are treating themselves. Such personal touch care quality sincerity, responsibility with lower cost as well made me my permanent destination to visit city life dental until now in 2019. Dr Sajili Mittal MDS renders multi-focal care with personal touch. She takes total responsibility of dental care if proper timely visits are made. I wish the clinic all the best.

Knowledgeable Dentist and Staff

My family and I have been coming to the clinic for the last one year.  What makes me come here is the cleanliness of the clinic, staff’s behavior, operational knowledge and the hygiene level of the staff.  My whole family is very satisfied here. The most important is the amount of time the doctors spend with the patient listening & explaining the treatment. Their patience level is fantastic.  Keep up the good work!
