It is our goal to have all generations of children grow up without any fear of dental care. As many parents have told us, their children are happy to come to our office. We are here to help you no matter what the age of your children. We can relieve their nervousness and make their visits a pleasant experience.
Your Child’s Dentist is as Important as Their Pediatrician
We want your children to take good daily care of their teeth starting at an early age. Children’s teeth are more prone to cavities at a young age for various reasons. Often children do not brush as they should. Parents can supervise how well their children clean their teeth, so they will develop proper habits. Kids also eat more often throughout the day (grazing), which results in more exposure to the acids produced from eating, eventually causing more cavities.
If a tooth is not clean enough to begin with, additional acids will speed up the rate of decay. If better dietary choices and hygiene habits are instilled, together with a mineralizing varnish, chances of cavities developing can be significantly minimized.
Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!
Children don’t always brush properly, and sometimes even meticulous brushing doesn’t clean the grooves and contours of teeth. If acids and bacteria build up, plaque will form and lead to decay. Any amount of decay is permanent damage for a tooth and it will need a filling. To keep all this from happening, we recommend one application of a sealant to their teeth.
Here is the quick and easy treatment. All the teeth are cleaned and sterilized. Our dentist applies a thin, clear plastic coat to each tooth and then bonds the sealant with a curing light. And that’s it! The procedure takes only a few minutes. Your children will feel very comfortable with this effective treatment as there are no shots or drilling, and all tooth structure remains intact.
This is one of the best preventive treatments children and adolescents can have to maintain their natural teeth for a lifetime!
