Your Child’s Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician
Instilling good habits early, in an environment that’s comfortable
and fun, is essential for a lifetime of good oral health. To ensure
healthy teeth, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
recommends a first visit by two years old. Children’s teeth can be
very susceptible to cavities at a young age due to many factors:
Children are not able to brush well on their own. Because of this,
it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily
dental care. This ensures both thorough cleaning and the development
of proper dental habits. Little kids tend to eat more often during
the day (grazing). This results in a prolonged exposure to acid
(every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.
A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will be exposed to acid
when food and juice contact it. This acid often speeds up the
development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor
dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish
to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the chance of
your child having a cavity.
Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!
We know that children often don’t do a very good job of brushing
their teeth. This even applies to adults too! Even meticulous
brushing often may not reach the deep grooves in the back teeth.
This results in bacteria, acids, and plaque formation, which will
lead to decay. And once the tooth has decay, it is damaged
permanently and will need a filling or crown.
What if there was a way to help prevent all this from happening?
Fortunately, there is! The application of dental sealants will do
Here’s how it works:
• The tooth (or teeth) is cleaned and sterilized.
• A thin plastic coating is applied. This is usually white or clear
• A curing light is applied to the sealant to bond it into place.
• The whole procedure takes just a few minutes. There are no shots
or drills or removal of any tooth structure.
• It’s totally painless.
Applying dental sealants is one of the best preventive things both
children and adolescents can do to preserve their natural teeth!
