Your children’s oral health is important to us, and good oral hygiene is an important part of keeping them healthy.
Oral hygiene has a significant influence on the formation of cavities. Teeth that are not cleaned regularly and properly may experience a weakening of the enamel and become more susceptible to decay. What’s more, studies have shown a link between good oral health and improved school performance and better social relationships.
Southern Dental in Houston not only treats tooth decay in children, but also tries to educate parents, as well as children, about the good habits that keep teeth strong and prevent dental disease.
The dentists at Southern Dental also pay particular attention to maintaining your child’s baby teeth, until they are naturally lost. This is due to the importance these primary teeth serve in permitting children to chew properly and therefore maintain good nutrition, as well as their role in speech development and in the maintenance of space for the eventual eruption of the permanent teeth.
Sealants are an economical way to prevent tooth decay in children. Posterior teeth are particularly susceptible to trapped food particles that cause decay. Southern Dental dentists and dental hygienists can apply a special clear, plastic coating on the chewing surfaces to seal and protect the these teeth.
