Cavities are no fun. Regular visits to the dentist can help prevent cavities or catch them before they hurt.
We offer fluoride…. The good news is that tooth decay is preventable. 1) Fluoride varnish, a high concentration fluoride coating that is painted on teeth, can prevent about one-third (33%) of decay in the primary (baby) teeth. 2) Children living in communities with fluoridated tap water have fewer decayed teeth than children who live in areas where their tap water is not fluoridated. 3) Similarly, children who brush daily with fluoride toothpaste will have less tooth decay.
Applying dental sealants to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth is another way to prevent tooth decay. Studies in children show that sealants reduce decay in the permanent molars by 81% for 2 years after they are placed on the tooth and continue to be effective for 4 years after placement.
Here are some things you can do to ensure good oral health for your child:
