An Easy Way to Prevent Child Tooth Decay
With all the contours and grooves in back teeth, even
thorough brushing may not reach these areas. This allows
bacteria and acids to accumulate and form plaque that leads
to decay. Once decay starts, the tooth is permanently
damaged and will require a filling or crown. We would like
to introduce to you another way to help prevent cavities.
One application of dental sealant will work.
Here is how we do that:
Teeth are first cleaned and sterilized. A thin coat of clear
sealant is applied to each tooth and then bonded with a
curing light. No shots are given and no drills are used –
the entire tooth structure remains intact. It is completely
painless and one application will help both children and
adolescents preserve their natural teeth!
