Common Pediatric Dental Treatments

Posted on 10/15/2023 by Weo Admin
a smiling family in Madison, WIBaby teeth are vital in ensuring good oral and overall health. They allow the child to speak and eat without discomfort. This helps them get the nutrition needed to keep them healthy. In this case, taking care of the baby's teeth should be your priority.

Good oral care, such as scheduling dental appointments for kids, helps to prevent oral issues, thus, maintaining the quality of your baby's life. Learn 3 common pediatric treatments that help to improve oral health in children:

Dental Cleaning

Some children do not implement good cleaning habits without supervision. They also love sweet treats, which makes them prone to plaque buildup. While daily teeth brushing, flossing, and use of mouthwash can reduce the amount of plaque, they do not eliminate all the build-ups.

That's why you should schedule dental examinations and cleaning for your child. During a routine dental cleaning, a professional uses special tools to remove plaque and tartar. They can also perform X-rays to spot issues and take any necessary steps.

Dental Sealants

As you know, kids are more prone to cavities than adults. This makes it necessary for children to get dental sealants. Dental sealants are coatings applied on hard-to-clean areas. In most cases, a toothbrush may not reach the grooves of the chewing surfaces of the teeth. This creates a conducive environment for bacteria to thrive, which increases the risk of cavities. Luckily, dental sealants are a solution to keeping bacteria under control. While kids' teeth will eventually fall, preventing them from cavities ensures good development of permanent teeth.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is vital in modern pediatric dentistry. It helps to remineralize the tooth enamel, reducing the risk of cavities. They also treat early decay, keeping your child's teeth healthy.
