Why Are Your Child’s Primary Teeth Important?
Many people may not realize how important it is to maintain the health of the primary teeth. Cavities left untreated with fillings may lead to conditions that can potentially affect how the permanent teeth develop. Your child’s primary teeth help with the development of speech, and proper chewing and eating. They maintain the space needed for permanent teeth and guide them to come in the correct position. Primary teeth also help with the healthy development of the jaws and muscles. Make sure to encourage brushing teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day to keep these primary teeth squeaky clean and bright!
Quality Pediatric Dental Care!
Given the importance of your child’s primary teeth, we pay close attention to preventative services such as fluoride treatment, dental sealants, space maintainers, and more to ensure your child enjoys optimal dental health. During our routine checkups and cleanings, we look out for signs of cavities or gum disease and treat any condition we find before it progresses. In the event your child experiences an emergency, we are fully equipped to offer emergency dental care. You can always count on us!
Research indicates fluoride can help prevent cavities in children and adults in at least two ways:
- Making the tooth enamel stronger against acids in the mouth formed by bacteria and sugar
- Helping to reduce the amount of bacteria on the tooth surface
Water fluoridation is a common practice in U.S. public water systems. However, bottled water, home treatment systems, and private well water may not be fluoridated. The lack of fluoride for infants and children during the crucial formative years may contribute to tooth decay.
“Topical” applications such as toothpaste and mouth rinses can supply that fluoride. If you’re concerned about getting enough fluoride to protect your teeth, Kraklow Quality Dentistry offers fluoride treatments in the office to make sure all teeth receive the benefits of fluoride.
