Pediatric Dentist Gillette WYChoose Your Child’s Dentist with Care

You probably spent a great deal of time choosing your child’s pediatrician. Who you choose to care for their oral health is just as important. A good dentist for children knows how important it is to instill good habits early, in an environment that’s comfortable and fun, to set up a lifetime of good oral health.

There are many reasons that children’s teeth can be prone to cavities, even at a very young age. Kids can’t brush well on their own, so parents must be involved in their child’s daily dental care. This ensures both thorough cleaning and the development of proper dental habits. Little kids also tend to graze, or eat more often during the day. Every time you eat you make acid, so children’s teeth have more exposure to that acid, which may cause more cavities.

The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the risk of cavities.

Dental Sealants - Prevent Tooth DecayYou Won’t Believe How Easy it Can Be to Prevent Tooth Decay

Most children (and even many adults!) can have difficulty doing a good job of brushing their teeth. Even diligent brushing may not reach the deep grooves in the back teeth. Our solution? We offer dental sealants for children as a barrier against tooth decay.

How do dental sealants work?
•  First we clean and sterilize the tooth or teeth (usually a set of molars is
   done at the same time).
•  Then we apply a thin plastic coating that is white or clear, so it’s almost invisible.
•  With the application of a curing light, the sealant is bonded into place.
•  From beginning to end, the procedure takes just a few minutes.
•  With no shots, drills, or changes to the structure of the tooth, it’s totally painless!

Applying dental sealants is one of the best preventive things both children and adolescents can do to preserve their natural teeth!
