Pediatric Dental Care in CincinnatiChoosing Your Child’s Dentist is as
Important as Choosing Their Pediatrician

We emphasize the importance of instilling good dental hygiene habits at an early age. Children are more prone to cavities, as they do not always brush well. We encourage parents to be a part of their children’s daily dental care for better cleaning and consistent daily care.

As children eat more often throughout the day, this extends the exposure of acid to their teeth. Every time you eat, acid is produced in the breakdown of food. As acid builds up and bacteria form, cavities will result. If a tooth is not clean to begin with, additional acid from contact with food and drink will increase the rate of cavity development.

With a healthy diet, improved hygiene habits, and an application of fluoride varnish that will mineralize teeth, the chances of decay can be lessened.

Dental Sealants Prevent Decay - CincinnatiPreventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!

Children often need help in the prevention of tooth decay. They may miss areas in hard to reach places like the grooves of back teeth. As acids form, bacteria and plaque result and eventually cause decay. Any amount of decay is permanent damage that needs a restoration with a filling or crown.

We have a treatment that helps to protect teeth from cavities. It is an application of a dental sealant in a quick and easy procedure.

Every tooth is first cleaned and then sterilized. A clear or white, thin coating is applied to the exposed surfaces of each tooth. A curing light bonds the sealant to the tooth. This invisible coating can greatly reduce the chances of cavities. No shots or drilling are necessary, and the tooth remains intact. It takes just a few minutes, but the benefits will last throughout a child’s formative and teen years, when they are most susceptible to cavities.
