Children’s Dentistry Protects Young Smiles
Some children are more susceptible to cavities in hard-to-reach areas, but problem teeth can be safeguarded with dental sealants. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to decayed teeth that have been filled, prepared, cleaned, and etched. Dental sealants shield your child’s teeth from bacteria and food residue that can cause decay.
Bottled drinking water lacks fluoride but is used in most homes; therefore fluoride treatments have become a common practice in children’s dentistry. Fluoride attracts other minerals to help strengthen tooth enamel and fight against cavities. Prevention is vital to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and our approach to children’s dentistry emphasizes warding off dental complications before they start.
