Your Child's Dentist Is Important for Their Good HealthKids Dentistry in Elk Grove CA

We educate our young patients on how to take care of their teeth with the best daily dental hygiene. We let them know how important it is to have a healthy smile with all their natural teeth. We instruct children in an environment that is fun and relaxed and that lets them take an interest in caring for their teeth and gums.

Children's teeth are prone to cavities in their early years of development due to various factors. They often do not do the best job of brushing and flossing without supervision. We encourage parents to participate in their kids' daily dental care. As kids tend to graze or frequently eat throughout the day, their teeth are exposed to acid more often. Every time food is chewed, acid is produced in the mouth, which can lead to decay if not properly cleaned on a regular basis.

Preventive Dental Sealants Elk Grove CAAn Effective Treatment to Prevent Child Tooth Decay

Even proper brushing can sometimes miss the contours and grooves of back teeth, even for adults. Left untouched, acids and bacteria can lead to plaque formation that will develop into a cavity. Even the smallest cavity is permanent damage that needs a restoration. But there is a way to help prevent this from happening. One application of a dental sealant is the easy treatment that makes a difference in the prevention of decay.

This procedure takes just minutes and does not require any shots, drilling, or removal of tooth structure. After teeth are cleaned and then sterilized, one thin application of the clear or white sealant is applied to the biting surfaces of back teeth. The dentist then bonds the sealant to the teeth with a curing light, and the whole procedure is quickly completed. It is invisible in appearance and not detectable by the patient. This treatment has been proven to be very effective for children and adolescents in maintaining their natural teeth to be cavity-free!
