Our Attentive Care for Your Kids
Children’s teeth are quite susceptible to cavities during their formative years. There are various reasons for this problem.
Children often do not brush and floss properly without supervision. We advise parents to be a part of their daily dental hygiene until they learn to take care of their teeth as needed on their own.
Kids eat throughout the day (also known as “grazing”), which exposes their teeth to acid while chewing food. If teeth are not cleaned properly to begin with, continual exposure to acid will speed up the rate decay develops and increase the number of cavities.
Maintaining good daily hygiene, making healthier food choices, and having one application of a mineralizing varnish to teeth can significantly reduce the chances of cavity development.
The Importance of Preventive Dentistry
Even thorough brushing sometimes misses hard-to-reach areas in the back teeth. As plaque forms and hardens into tartar and additional acid comes into contact with the tooth, decay will form. Any amount of decay is permanent damage.
There is a quick and easy treatment that can help prevent cavity occurrence. One application of dental sealants will work.
This is the simple procedure:
- After all teeth are cleaned and sterilized, one thin coat of the sealant is applied to each rear tooth’s surface. It is clear and invisible. To bond the sealant to the tooth structure, the dentist uses a curing light. And that is the whole procedure that takes just minutes!
- No shots, drills, or tooth removal are necessary. It is harmless but very effective in maintaining children’s and adolescents’ teeth for a lifetime.
