When your child comes to see us at our dental practice, he or she will be seen by our expert and gentle kids dentist in Sandy UT, Dr. Will Ellingson. It is very important that children have periodic dental exams to make sure that both their baby teeth and permanent teeth are remaining healthy. Baby teeth play many important roles in a child’s mouth, so they too need to remain healthy so that they will stay intact for as long as they are needed. Children’s teeth are prone to developing cavities for several reasons. To begin with, children have not yet perfected their tooth brushing skills. Also, children enjoy eating sweets, so they have more carbs in their mouth. These materials will form with saliva and materials found in dental plaque, to create acids which will eat through your children’s teeth. And finally, children’s teeth are likely to have many pits and grooves in them. These pits and grooves provide great hiding places for germs and dental plaque. Two great ways to help protect your child’s teeth from developing dental cavities are to have your child get fluoride treatments when he or she comes in for their dental visits. We also offer dental sealants for children. Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating that will protect the flat surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars. This coating will remain on your child’s teeth for a long time and keep food and germs from getting stuck in the pits and grooves which will create decay.
