Choose Your Child’s Dentist with Care
We want your children to have the best oral health. What we
teach during their appointments needs to become a part of their
daily hygiene, as kids are prone to cavities. Children do not
always brush well by themselves and need supervision to ensure
they do a good job. We encourage parents to assist their
children in daily maintenance so they develop good habits.
Children eat often throughout the day. Every time you eat, acid
is produced. An extended exposure to acid can cause more
cavities. If a tooth has not been cleaned properly, additional
contact with acids will increase the rate of cavity development.
If dietary choices are corrected and hygiene habits improved,
the occurrence of cavities is reduced. We also recommend a
fluoride varnish applied to all their teeth, as this mineralizes
the teeth and significantly helps to deter cavities.

Here’s how easy it is. All the teeth are cleaned and sterilized.
A thin coat of sealant is applied. It is clear or white and
therefore invisible. The sealant is bonded to the tooth
structure with a curing light. And that is the whole procedure
that takes only minutes! There are no shots or drills used and
no tooth structure is removed.
It is a safe and excellent preventive therapy for children and
adolescents to help them keep their natural teeth.
