Tooth decay is a bacterial infection that can affect the teeth and gums. In particular, children are highly vulnerable to cavities caused by tooth decay. Fortunately, it is pretty easy to decrease your child’s risk of developing this problem. At Unique Kids Pediatric Dentistry, we offer several effective preventative services, including fluoride treatments.
Fluoride treatment is the application of a topical fluoride gel to a child’s teeth using a small brush. Fluoride is a natural substance that helps to reinforce the teeth. A professionally applied fluoride treatment is effective at preventing mineral loss from the tooth enamel. Additionally, the treatment boosts remineralization in teeth that are facing early signs of cavity formation. When used in proper amounts, fluoride is safe to use and is hugely beneficial to a child’s teeth.
There are several benefits of fluoride treatments that include:
Dr. Roshan Roshannejad may recommend that your child start receiving fluoride applications as soon as their first primary tooth erupts. This preventative approach of fluoride application could play a vital role in stopping the formation of cavities.
There are many reasons why fluoride is helpful to a child’s growing smile. Children often possess some of the most prevalent risk factors, so a proper treatment plan can be created to better prevent childhood dental cavities. These risk factors can include:
A fluoride gel or varnish would be painted onto your child’s teeth. The gel will only take a minute to apply. Your child can eat and drink shortly afterward. At the most, an interval of about thirty minutes should be allowed. Fluoride treatments may be used once every three to six months to ensure the protection of your child’s teeth.
