The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a dental check-up at least twice a year for most children. Some children need more frequent dental visits because of increased risk of tooth decay, unusual growth patterns, or poor oral hygiene. At Tooth Factory we proactively provide preventative services to establish healthy habits that your children will carry into adulthood. Regular dental visits help your child stay cavity-free. Teeth cleanings remove debris that build up on the teeth, irritate the gums, and cause decay. Fluoride treatments renew the fluoride content in the enamel, strengthening teeth and preventing cavities. Hygiene instructions and nutritional counseling improve your child’s brushing and flossing, leading to cleaner teeth and healthier gums. Tooth decay isn’t the only reason for a dental visit. Dr. CC will provide an ongoing assessment of changes in your child’s oral health including functional habits that affect dental facial growth.
BPA Free – SEALANTS
BPA free sealants protect the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of back teeth where most cavities in children are found. They are made of clear or shaded plastic, sealants are applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity-free. Food and bacteria build up in these crevices, placing your child in danger of tooth decay. Sealants “seal out” food and plaque, thus reducing the risk of decay.
A properly fitted mouth guard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that can help protect your child’s smile, and should be used during any activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth. Mouth guards help prevent broken teeth, concussions, and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. A properly fitted mouth guard will stay in place while your child is wearing it, making it easy for them to talk and breathe.
