It is very important that your children’s teeth stay healthy; this also includes baby teeth. Baby teeth play very important roles in your child’s mouth, just one of which is acting as a placeholder for a specific permanent tooth. For this reason you want to be sure that your child’s teeth and gums stay as healthy as possible – both baby teeth and permanent teeth. At our pediatric dental office in South Gate we offer several different types of dental treatments to help your child’s teeth stay healthy. One of these treatments is dental sealants. Dental sealants are actually painted on to your child’s teeth and act as a physical barrier between your child’s teeth and the harmful substances found in tooth plaque. Dental sealants are used to protect the flat chewing surfaces of premolars and molars. The dental sealants will fill in any pits and grooves in your child’s teeth and make it more difficult for plaque to stick to these surfaces, as well. Dental sealants can be easily applied to your child’s teeth. First your child’s teeth are cleaned and dried. Then the dental sealants are applied to your child’s teeth; they will quickly dry. They will also last for many years. At our dental office we also offer fluoride treatments which will help strengthen your child’s tooth enamel. Having periodic dental cleanings is also important for your child so that all plaque, tartar, bacteria and food debris can be removed from their teeth. All of this will help to prevent dental cavities and even gum problems.
