Be Proactive To Preserve Healthy Smiles
More than 40 percent of kids will have tooth decay by their 11th birthday, according to data from the National Institutes of Health. The NIH also reports that 1 in 5 kids 5 years or younger has an untreated cavity.
You probably won’t be surprised if we pointed out that kids don’t always brush and floss their teeth as often or as well as they should. That can and does increase the likelihood that they will develop decay, cavities, and other oral health problems.
Fortunately, we offer services that can provide some added defense against bacteria and plaque build-up.
This starts with regular cleanings and exams. Professionals cleanings are how when we remove plaque and tartar buildup from your kids’ teeth. This in and of itself reduces their risk of cavities. The exams are equally important because they are when we identify existing problems, which means they can be treated as soon as possible.
Whenever possible, you want to prevent problems. That’s why you should take advantage of our dental sealants as well. Sealants are a special coating that creates a layer of protection over teeth at a relatively low cost. This means your kids will have a physical barrier between their teeth at cavity-causing bacteria. Think of this as an added layer of defense for those times when your kids may not brush their teeth like they should.
Stay In The Game
Of course, cavities and tooth decay are not the only potential threats to a healthy smile. Accidents and injuries happen more often than people would like.
While we can help in a dental emergency, we would much prefer to help you avoid those situations. If your kids play practically any sport, we strongly recommend that they wear mouthguards any time they are playing or practicing.
As part of our general dentistry, you can get custom-made mouthguards for any budding athletes in your family. Any mouthguard is better than no mouthguard, but personalized mouthguards are more comfortable to wear and provide the most protection against dental injuries.
