Cavity Prevention Made Easy
A cavity-free smile is a happy, healthy smile. Charlotte pediatric dentist Dr. Bevin Malley recommends proper brushing and flossing at home, good nutrition, and regular dental checkups at Carolina Kids Dentistry to keep children’s teeth strong and healthy. But even the best brushers can fall prey to dental decay. That’s why Dr. Bevin offers professional-strength fluoride treatments and dental sealants to safeguard oral health and keep children (and their parents) smiling!
Dental Decay – Always on the Attack
Dental plaque continually forms on teeth. Fueled by the foods we eat, plaque releases acids that attack teeth and begin a process called demineralization. These acids lurk in ridges and pits of kids’ molars, often out of reach of the toothbrush. Left unchecked, demineralization weakens tooth enamel and allows cavities to form.
Dental Sealants Seal Out Decay
A dental sealant smooths the surface of a tooth to allow easier cleaning and provide a barrier against decay. Think of sealants as armor for teeth – thin, clear armor! Kids can’t feel the sealants on their teeth, and they don’t interfere with speech or eating. They do, however, make brushing more efficient and effective.
Fluoride Fights Cavities
Fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral, remineralizes teeth to safeguard teeth from decay. A professional-strength fluoride treatment from Carolina Kids Dentistry is safe, effective, and easy to apply. It provides added protection for kids’ teeth and gives parents peace of mind.
