Protect Your Children’s Beautiful Smiles
Are you concerned about protecting the health of your child’s smile? By saying, “yes” to dental sealants and fluoride, you help your child avoid tooth decay, while encouraging the growth of strong, healthy teeth.
What Are Sealants And Fluoride?
Sealants and fluoride are preventive services we offer to our younger patients to help safeguard their teeth against cavity formation. Look over the following explanations for a clearer understanding of each treatment:
- Sealants: A sealant is a thin layer of plastic that your dentist, Dr. Goguen, will paint over the surfaces of your child’s hard-to-reach back teeth. Sealants deter plaque and improve the effectiveness of brushing. The treatment is fast and comfortable.
- Fluoride: Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that assists in the fight against tooth decay, while strengthening young, developing teeth.
What Are The Benefits Of Sealants And Fluoride?
As your child first learns how to practice excellent dental hygiene, you can expect a learning curve and difficulty reaching hard-to-navigate areas for thorough brushing. Providing your little ones with sealants and fluoride gives them a safety net – teeth with added protection and strength are more likely to avoid cavity development and other oral problems. This will promote excellent oral health, so your child feels confident and proud about his or her hygiene efforts.
Does My Child Qualify As A Candidate For Sealants And Fluoride?
Nearly every child makes a wonderful candidate for sealants. When it comes to fluoride, every child is exposed to varying levels. Your pediatric dentist, Dr. Goguen, will determine whether your child is an excellent candidate for this treatment on a case-by-case basis.
