Power Shields for the Sweet Teeth
A very common preventive pediatric dental
recommended procedure is pit and fissure
sealants, or as we like to call them power
shields for teeth! WHY DO KIDS NEED THEM? Any
molar surface that forms with deeper pits and
grooves would be likely to trap food and bacteria
and so the likelihood that dental decay could
begin in these difficult to clean areas is quite
high. Most patients can benefit from sealants
around age 6 when their first permanent molars
typically erupt and again when they are a bit
older and erupt their second permanent molars,
which is usually around age 12.

HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE GO?
  • The application of sealants can help prevent
    decay in your
  • childs teeth with a few simple steps and can be
    completed in only a few moments per tooth. It is
    a non-invasive procedure that requires no
    removal of tooth structure and is completely
    painless.

Painting On Your Child's TeethSweet Teeth A
protective coating called fluoride gel thats
applied in the dental office twice a year is an
easy, quick, cost-effective method for the
prevention of cavities.

WHEN TO DO THE TREATMENT?
Painting the teeth at the end of our patients
visits and it can be applied to primary (baby)
or permanent teeth to help against the battle of
tooth decay. There have been many studies that
show that fluoride therapy can reduce the
incidence of cavities by 37-43 by inhibiting the
loss of minerals from tooth enamel and killing
the bacteria that cause cavities. Fluoride
treatments also help treat enamel sensitivity and
restore the strength of enamel. WHO SHOULD GET
THE TREATMENT DONE? It is recommended that our
patients with a moderate risk of cavities receive
an application of fluoride gel at the end of
their routine. After all health of the milk teeth
determine the health of permanent ones!!
