Dental Care for Kids - Family DentistChoosing a Dentist for Your Child is as Important as Choosing Their Pediatrician
Children's Dentistry Wilmington NC
The main goal in children’s dentistry is instilling good habits early. This is essential for a lifetime of good oral health. It’s also important to provide a comfortable, fun environment so they want to keep coming back. Children’s teeth can be very susceptible to cavities at a young age due to many factors.

Children can have difficulty brushing well by themselves, so it’s important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily dental care. This ensures both thorough cleaning and the development of proper dental habits. Little kids tend to graze, eating frequently during the day. This results in a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.

A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will be exposed to acid when food and juice contact it. This acid often speeds up the development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the chance of your child having a cavity.


Preventive Dental Care for ChildrenOne Way to Prevent Child Tooth Decay
Dental Sealants Dentist Wilmington NC
Most children and even many adults can have difficulty doing a good job of brushing their teeth. Even diligent brushing may not reach the deep grooves in the back teeth. This results in bacteria, acids, and plaque formation, which will lead to decay. Decay is permanent damage that requires a filling or crown. We’re very happy to say that applying dental sealants can significantly reduce the risk of decay!

After the teeth are cleaned and sterilized, a thin plastic clear or white coating is applied. A curing light bonds the sealant in place. The whole procedure takes just a few minutes. There are no shots or drills or removal of any tooth structure, so it’s completely painless. Applying dental sealants is a fantastic way for both children and adolescents to preserve their natural teeth!

Healthy smiles for your entire family! Give us a call today at (910) 763-3679 to schedule your child's next visit.
