Child’s Dentist is as Important as Their Pediatrician
Children’s teeth are prone to cavities during their
growing years for many reasons. That is why we emphasize
good hygiene habits from their first visit.
Children do not always brush well by themselves. It is
important for an adult to help them develop good
brushing habits. As kids eat throughout the day, there
is continual exposure of the tooth surface to acid from
the food and drink. Excessive exposure to acid may cause
If a tooth is not already as clean as it needs to be,
more acid and bacteria will build up, which increases
the rate of cavity development. When dietary choices are
changed to healthy ones and hygiene habits are improved,
together with an application of a fluoride varnish, the
chances of a cavity are greatly reduced.
Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!
Children do not always brush their teeth as well as they
need to. With all the grooves and contours in the back
teeth, areas may be missed and not cleaned properly.
When bacteria and plaque start to form on the tooth’s
surface, decay begins. Once there is any decay, a
filling is needed, or if the decay is extensive, a crown
will be the required restoration.
There is a way to keep this from happening with an
application of dental sealants on all the teeth. Here is
how this easy treatment works:
• After the teeth are cleaned and sterilized, a thin, transparent
coating of the sealant is applied.
• A curing light is used for bonding the sealant to the teeth.
• No shots or drills are used and the entire treatment takes only a
• This sealant helps to prevent cavities for both children and
adolescents and preserve their teeth for a lifetime.
