Dentist is a Part of Their Good Health
Your teeth and gums are part of your body, and good dental health plays an important role in staying healthy overall. Children’s teeth are more vulnerable to cavities during their formative years, so we teach them how to brush and floss properly and encourage them to continue with good daily dental hygiene. We also ask parents to make sure they do so each day, so these habits build a lifetime of good teeth and better health.
Children tend to eat throughout the day, which
exposes their teeth to acid more frequently. Every time food is
eaten, acids are produced in the mouth to start the digestive
process. However, if teeth are not cleaned properly, cavities will
start. The more frequent contact with acids will increase the number
and rate at which cavities develop.
This is why good daily dental hygiene is important. We also encourage better, more nutritional food choices to lessen the chances of cavities developing. One very important treatment for children and adolescents is the application of a mineralizing sealant, which will give added protection against the onset of cavities.
Children’s Healthy Teeth – The Easy Way!
Even the most careful brushing can sometimes miss hard-to-reach places, such as the grooves in the back teeth. This will allow acids and bacteria to build up, plaque to form, and decay to begin. Permanent damage to a tooth requires a restoration. But for children, there is an added layer of protection that can help to prevent cavities. One application of a thin coat of dental sealant will do the trick!
Here’s the easy
All the teeth are sterilized. The dentist then applies a thin layer of the sealant to the tooth surfaces. He uses a curing light to adhere the sealant to the teeth. That’s the entire procedure that requires no shots or drilling. All the teeth remain intact, and this simple and quick procedure will help children and adolescents keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.
