Child’s Dentist is as Important as a Pediatrician
We encourage good dental hygiene in your children at an
early age and make it fun and comfortable so they keep those
habits for a lifetime.
Children’s teeth are more susceptible to cavities for
various reasons. They often do not brush like they should
and need parents’ supervision in their daily dental care.
This will help ensure they brush properly. Kids usually eat
more often during the day which prolongs their teeth’s
exposure to acid (from the foods they eat). This may result
in more cavities.
If a tooth is already not as clean as it needs to be it
will have a faster development of cavities due to more
frequent contact of food and juice. If poor dietary choices
and hygiene habits are identified and corrected, it will
help to decrease the chances of decay. Applications
of a fluoride varnish also help to remineralize teeth to further
reduce the incidences of cavities.
Easy Way to Prevent Child Tooth Decay
With all the contours and grooves in back teeth, even
thorough brushing may not reach these areas. This allows
bacteria and acids to accumulate and form plaque that leads
to decay. Once decay starts, the tooth is permanently
damaged and will require a filling or crown. We would like
to introduce to you another way to help prevent cavities.
One application of dental a sealant will work.
Here is how we do that:
Teeth are first cleaned and sterilized. A thin coat of clear
sealant is applied to each tooth and then bonded with a
curing light. No shots are given and no drills are used –
the entire tooth structure remains intact. It is completely
painless and one application will help both children and
adolescents preserve their natural teeth!
