Did you know that cavities are widespread among the pediatric population, affecting 42% of children ages 2-11 and 59% of children and adolescents ages 12-19? While those statistics are high, with a simple and effective oral hygiene regimen and routine dental care, we can help reduce your child’s risk of dental disease. After your child’s first teeth erupt, it’s time to consider visiting a Davie pediatric dentist to discuss the best way to care for your child’s smile. We’ll discuss how you can clean and care for your child’s newly emerging teeth at home, and will beginning tracking the development of your child’s teeth and jaw. As children grow older, we strive to impart to them the importance of brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional choices for maintaining healthy teeth. We also recommend periodic topical fluoride treatments, which help strengthen tooth enamel and protect against cavities. Once your child’s permanent molars erupt, we can also apply dental sealants, which are protective coatings that seal out plaque, tartar and food debris from gathering in the rough crevices of the back teeth. Dental sealants are shown to reduce the risk of cavities in children’s molars by up to 80%.
