Children’s teeth our very prone to developing cavities, so whatever we can do to help our children’s teeth stay healthy is a step worth taking. Children’s teeth our very prone to getting dental cavities for several reasons. To begin with, children have not yet particularly perfected their tooth brushing skills. Also, children love to eat foods with sweets and carbs in them. These materials will mix with the acids found in dental plaque and saliva, and will eat through your child’s tooth enamel. And, children’s teeth often have pit and grooves on them which may it very easy for cavities to occur. This is because the pits and grooves will make it easier for dental plaque to stick to the teeth. This is particularly true on the flat chewing services of a child’s molars. For this reason, our New City dentist office recommends that children get dental sealants to protect the flat chewing surfaces of the child’s premolars and molars. When children get dental sealants, their teeth are first thoroughly cleaned and dried. A dental sealant material is then actually painted on. It will dry in a short amount of time, and at this point your child’s molars will be protected. Dental sealants are extremely strong and will last for many years. We also offer fluoride treatments to help strengthen your child’s tooth enamel. This too will help to prevent dental cavities from forming.
