If you want to prevent your child from getting dental cavities, you should bring him or her to see our top-notch dentist at Children’s Dental Group. Our 95122 dentist can provide your children with many different types of dental services to prevent early childhood tooth decay, as well as with gentle dental exams and cleanings.
It is very common for children to get dental cavities. There are many different reasons for this. First of all, children are not yet expert tooth-brushers; for this reason, they are not able to remove all harmful plaque, bacteria and food debris when they brush their teeth. In addition, children’s teeth often have many pits and grooves in them. Plaque will be able to better attach itself to these areas. When plaque is allowed to remain on teeth, the cavity-causing acids in the plaque will be better able to eat through their teeth. In addition, children like to eat foods with many sweets and carbs in them. These materials will combine with saliva and other materials in the mouth and cause cavity-causing acids to develop and exist within the plaque. In order to help your child to keep from getting dental cavities, our 95122 dentist offers several different types of cavity prevention treatments. Fluoride treatments are very easy for your child to get and tolerate. They will serve to make the tooth enamel on your children’s teeth stronger, and better resistant to cavity-causing acids. We also offer dental sealants which can act as a physical barrier between your child’s tooth and harmful substances naturally found in the mouth. These sealants are used to protect the flat chewing surfaces of molars. Coming to our dental practice for periodic dental exams and dental cleanings will also help to prevent early childhood tooth decay by detecting problems early, and keeping your child’s teeth clean.
