trust you understand that oral health plays a vital role in a person's
It is well known that children's teeth are more susceptible to cavities than an adult's teeth. There are various factors that contribute to the easy onset of cavities. Children eat frequently throughout the day. Every time food is consumed, acids are produced in the mouth. A build-up and prolonged exposure to acids provide the right environment for cavities to develop. And even the smallest amount of decay is permanent damage to a tooth.
As children do not brush or floss well, we advise parents to be a part of their daily dental hygiene until they learn to take care of their teeth properly on their own. We also encourage healthier food choices, and one application of a mineralizing sealant to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime.
Even careful brushing sometimes misses the contours of back teeth. As
plaque forms and exposure to acids continues, a cavity will form. We
offer an excellent preventive technique that will help in the fight
against cavities. Dr. Berger can apply a thin layer of a dental sealant,
which adds an extra measure of protection against cavities.
It is a quick and easy treatment that is pain free with no shots, drilling, or tooth removal necessary. This is how the sealant is applied:
All teeth are cleaned properly and sterilized. A thin coating of the sealant is applied. It is invisible, as it is clear or white. With a curing light, the coating is bonded to the surface of teeth. And that is the whole procedure that takes just minutes! This is one of the best preventive measures to help children and adolescents keep their mouths cavity free!
