Tooth decay is something that is of particular concern for your child. The reasons have to do with the susceptibility of baby (primary) teeth, along with the fact that kids tend to love sugar, and maybe not brush and floss as diligently as they should. And because tooth decay leads to cavities, which then lead to toothaches, infections, and early loss of baby teeth, our pediatric dentist Warner Robbins, William L. Toler DMD is committed to helping prevent it.
Plaque is the bacterial film that is at the foundation of why tooth decay occurs. It is the coating that you feel when you wake up each morning. Sugar and starch in your child’s diet act as catalysts for the development of more plaque, putting your child at risk for tooth decay. Whenever possible, limit his or her sugar consumption, and try to make sweet treats a part of meals instead of as standalone snacks. Brushing and flossing are essential, naturally. Proper technique is vital. Our pediatric dentist Warner Robbins will show your child how to do it most effectively. And by doing so, most of the plaque that forms will be eliminated. Unfortunately, it’s a stubborn and sneaky substance, often staying out of reach, such as in gum pockets. It then turns into hardened tartar, for which no amount of brushing and flossing is likely to have much impact. For that, you need to bring her or him in for a twice-yearly visit where our pediatric dentist Warner Robbins will eradicate current tartar buildup and residual plaque with a professional teeth cleaning. This is a crucial component in the fight to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Ask us about sealants, also, and the role they play in keeping the effects of tooth decay to a minimum.
While you’re thinking about it, call our office today and schedule an appointment for your child to come in for a teeth cleaning and a six month dental exam.
