At Woodin Creek Dental, we believe fluoride to be essential towards protecting your child’s teeth. Fluoride can be found in the public water supply as well as in certain fruits and vegetables.

Establish Regular Dental Exams And Dental Cleanings

But depending on your area of residency (residents in rural locations live off well water as opposed to public) as well as your child’s susceptibility towards decay, your child may need additional topical fluoride treatments. It’s important to establish regular exams and cleanings so Dr. Goel and Dr. Chiang can keep a close watch on decay development as well as risk.

Teeth have natural grooves on their chewing surfaces. If these grooves are deep, they can trap plaque and bacteria, and a cavity can form. Sealants are special resin material that is placed into the deep grooves to “seal” them up and prevent plaque and bacteria from getting trapped, thus preventing cavities. There is a lot of research behind the effectiveness of sealants as a preventative measure against cavities.

At Woodin Creek Dental, we always advise continuing care (checkups and exams) for your child. That way, Dr. Chiang and Dr. Goel and detect problems before they grow and cause permanent damage to your child’s teeth. We have flexible hours and well-trained staff so we can often see all your children on the same day, to make it more convenient for you.

Maintain Oral Health At Home

The best defense against oral problems is good home-care oral hygiene, routine dental exams, and professional cleanings. As mentioned above, kids need to learn proper hygiene habits at a young age, to ensure good habits as adults. Regular brushing and flossing is essential. They will probably need your help up until around age 8. If your child insists on brushing herself, check to make sure they are doing a proper job. It is not unusual for kids to not properly brush their back teeth (harder to reach).

People often think that baby teeth are unimportant, due to the fact that they will eventually lose them and have adult teeth. However, this is a myth! Baby teeth are important to help your child speak and chew properly. They are also designed to be placeholders for the adult teeth that are developing inside your child’s jaw.

It Is Necessary To Fill A Baby Tooth?

Parents often ask us if it is necessary to fill a baby tooth. The answer is yes, in order to ensure that their adult teeth grow in with the proper alignment. If a baby tooth has a cavity that goes unfilled, eventually it will spread into the nerve and cause pain and serious infection, and the adult tooth underneath may not grow in properly, leading to misalignment and expensive orthodontic treatment (braces) to correct the problem.
