Growing up, everyone at one point experiences bacteria on their teeth known as plaque. This is why dentists say it is extremely important to brush and floss your teeth regularly, especially for children. Most people do not realize the damage that this build-up causes your teeth.
If your children develop small holes or cavities in their teeth, it is important that they have them cleaned and filled right away. Since primary teeth are not as strong as permanent teeth, cavities in primary teeth can progress quickly. There is almost no risk involved with removing bacteria from teeth and filling cavities.
Fillings are considered restorations for the teeth. At Woodbridge Kids Dentistry we offer a variety of treatment options:
- Composite (Resin)
- Amalgam (Silver)
- Stainless Steel Crown
- Zirconia Crowns (tooth colored)
There are many reasons why it is important to have your teeth filled and restored back to 100% hygiene. Decay, cavities, trauma including broken or cracked teeth, poor tooth development, and a change in the color of your child’s teeth are all reasons they may be in need of restoration.
In order for kids to avoid needing fillings and treatments it is important that they understand how to take proper care of their teeth and keep them bacteria free starting at a young age.
Parents! It is important that you and your child understand the ways that they can avoid needing fillings as they get older. Some ways to ensure your child will not need fillings or have cavities include avoiding snacking between meals, brushing your teeth TWICE daily, flossing everyday, and taking vitamins to ensure your teeth are healthy and strong as well.
