Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!
Children often need help in the prevention of tooth decay.
They may miss areas in hard to reach places like the grooves
of back teeth. As acids form, bacteria and plaque result and
eventually cause decay. Any amount of decay is permanent
damage that needs a restoration with a filling or crown.
We have a treatment that helps to protect teeth from
cavities. It is an application of a dental sealant in a
quick and easy procedure.
Every tooth is first cleaned and then sterilized. A clear or
white, thin coating is applied to the exposed surfaces of
each tooth. A curing light bonds the sealant to the tooth.
This invisible coating can greatly reduce the chances of
cavities. No shots or drilling are necessary, and the tooth
remains intact. It takes just a few minutes, but the
benefits will last throughout a child’s formative and teen
years, when they are most susceptible to cavities.
