Raising Cavity Free Kids
We help parents raise cavity free children. With improved technology it may be possible to eliminate tooth decay in children. In other words, the unpleasant dental experiences of your youth do not have to be repeated on your children. We do everything in our power to make sure you are aware of the specific ways to prevent tooth decay for your child. What that means is you save money and your child remains healthy!
We recommend fissure sealant treatment when your child's first permanent teeth come through, usually at the age of 6-7 years and the remainder of teeth be sealed as they appear thereafter usually between 11-14 years.
A fissure(or pit) sealant is a thin, plastic film that is applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth creatina protective barrier which prevents food and bacteria getting into these teeth.
This safe and painless technique thereby protects childrens' teeth and prevents dental decay.
• Are safe and effective
• Painless in application and unnoticeable after treatment
• Prevent decay of molars and premolars
• Should last for many years
• Easier to keep clean due to a smoother tooth surface
• Reduce the likelihood of fillings in your child's mouth
We are often asked "What is the best age to bring my child in for his first dental visit?" We believe that a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums starts at a very early age, at about 3 years old. We encourage parents to bring their young children into our office and show them around.
