If you want to help your child have healthy teeth, you should bring your child in to see one of our expert pediatric dentists at Children’s Dental Group. At our dental care practice, we offer excellent dental exams and gentle dental cleanings for children and adults as well. As part of our kids dental care Norwalk we also offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to protect your child’s teeth from dental cavities.
Dental sealants are very important since they can greatly reduce the number of cavities that your child gets on their molars, and premolars. These teeth are found at the back of the mouth and can be very prone to developing cavities. This is because your child may have trouble brushing back teeth well. Also, these teeth often have pits and grooves on them. These pits and grooves allow plaque to more easily stick to them. When plaque stays on teeth, materials in the plaque form with carbs in your child’s mouth, and cavity-causing acids are found. Dental sealants are applied to clean and dry teeth, and will fill in the pits in the grooves making it less likely that plaque can stick to them. The dental sealants will also act as a physical barrier between the harmful cavity-causing materials in your child’s mouth and your child’s teeth. Dental sealants can be used on the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars, and molars. They last for many years. At our dental practice, as part of your child’s kids dental care Norwalk, your child can also receive fluoride treatments. These treatments our offered after each dental cleaning, and will strengthen your child’s tooth enamel making it less likely that he or she will get dental cavities.
