No matter if you are a child, teen, or adult, your dental care matters more than you realize. Having healthy and beautiful teeth helps you to look and feel young at every stage of life. Beyond the appearance, poor dental care habits at any stage of your life lead to gum disease and further oral complications that may be irreversible. But the good news is, it is never too late to start with improving your oral health.
Sealants are a thin, protective coating over teeth that protect the chewing surfaces of the back teeth from developing cavities. They work as a great line of defense for cavities when done with regular flossing and brushing.
Deep narrow openings run across the chewing surface of molars. Even if your child brushes the teeth properly, the bristles of a toothbrush cannot skim across these surfaces. Therefore, bacteria start developing beyond the reach of bristles. The cavities there start affecting the tooth nerve and may destroy the valuable teeth structure of your child. The sealant shuts the food particles out and protects the groove from cavities.
Children, teens, and adults all have different dental needs. Family dentistry focuses on unique oral health at each stage of life. Dentists at Synergy Dental Arts are qualified to deliver comprehensive care for both primary and permanent teeth. Typical family dentistry services include cleanings, fluoride treatments, ortho screening, cavity fillings, orthodontics, sealants, and gum disease treatment. We create a positive dental experience for both adults and children.
Ortho screening is a visual inspection of the mouth performed by dentists to identify occlusion abnormalities in children. It uses x-ray and other examination techniques.
Children require frequent checkups to ensure their teeth are developing properly in their growing stage. They develop their first cavities by the time they turn two years old. Therefore, we recommend visiting a dentist as soon as their first tooth appears. With a preventative oral hygiene plan, we can prevent tooth decay and a related lifetime of problems for them.
