Choosing Your Children’s Dentist Is as Important as Their
It is important to instill good daily dental care at a young age to have healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. Children’s teeth are more subjected to cavities for various reasons. They may not brush well without an adult’s supervision. We emphasize that a parent should make sure they brush correctly. A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will continue to build up plaque from eating and drinking. Kids eat more often throughout the day, which adds to the teeth’s exposure to acid from the food and can increase the development of cavities.
We can apply a fluoride varnish to mineralize the teeth. Together with a healthy diet and hygiene habits, this lessens the chance of your child getting a cavity.
An Easy Way to Prevent Child Tooth Decay!
Even careful brushing may not clean all the grooves and contours of the back teeth. As bacteria and acids build up, plaque forms and eventually decay occurs. Once there is decay in a tooth, it will need a filling.
There is a way to help lessen the chances of decay. Dental sealants add protection to the surface of teeth. The treatment is quick and easy.
The back teeth are cleaned, then sterilized. A light coating of the sealant is applied to each tooth. It is transparent and not visible. A curing light is used to bond the sealant to the tooth. This whole procedure takes only a few minutes. No shot or drills are needed, and none of the tooth structure is removed. It is a very effective preventive measure for children’s and adolescents’ teeth.
