Product and Services

Tooth decay, or cavities can be a significant challenge for children and adults and if they are left untreated can lead to more serious dental concerns. They can be painful before they are treated, costly to correct and time consuming. To have better oral health and happy patients The Dental Health Center offers sealants and fluoride treatments to prevent invasive tooth decay.

Sealants are a clear or tooth colored plastic coating that is applied to grooves and deep pits. The sealant fills the areas where decay most likely occurs. Sealants are very effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces, for this reason our dentists place special emphasis on sealants. There is no need anesthetic or drilling while placing sealants. Preventing tooth decay is essential, that’s why sealants and fluoride are some of the most important preventive services we offer.

Most pediatric dentists will agree that regular dental care should begin by one year of age, with a dental check-up at least twice each consecutive year for most children. Some children may need more frequent evaluations and care. In accordance with this recommendation, the following dental checklist for infants and toddlers has been provided by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry:

Birth to 6 months of age:Clean the infant’s mouth with gauze after feedings and bedtime. Consult your child’s pediatrician regarding fluoride supplements.Six to 12 months of age:During this time, the first tooth should appear. Consult the Pediatric dentist for an examination. Brush teeth after each feeding and at bedtime with a small, soft-bristled brush. As the child begins to walk, stay alert of potential dental and/or facial injuries.

Twelve to 24 months of age:Follow the schedule of dental examinations and cleanings, as recommended by your child’s pediatric dentist. Generally, dental examinations and cleanings are recommended every 6 months for children and adults.As your child learns to rinse his/her mouth, and as most deciduous baby teeth have erupted by this age, brushing with a pea-sized portion of fluoridated toothpaste becomes appropriate.

Facts about deciduous teeth:Proper care of a child’s baby teeth is very important. These teeth hold space for the future permanent teeth.If a baby tooth decays or is removed too early, the space necessary for the permanent teeth is lost and can only be regained through orthodontic treatment.

Infected baby teeth can cause the permanent teeth to develop improperly resulting in stains, pits, and weaker teeth.Most children begin losing their baby teeth around the age of 4 – usually the front bottom teeth first. They continue to lose baby teeth until the age of 12 or 13 when all of the permanent teeth finally come through.

Thumb-Sucking and Dental Health.Generally, thumb-sucking before the age of two is normal and harmless. When thumb-sucking is not stopped by the appropriate age (generally by the age of five) then parents should discourage the act. Prolonged thumb-sucking may contribute to crowded and/or crooked teeth development and bite problems.
