Newport Beach Dentist uses preventive resin restorations to stop decay
Children don’t always take the best care of their teeth. They may try to, but they have not developed the dexterity necessary to brush as well as they should. To make matters worse, molars, both first (6-year-old) and second (12-year-old) molars enter the mouth with deep grooves that make them especially difficult to clean. Because of this, they are likely to become decayed. What can you, as a parent, do to protect them while they grow up?
Because of developments over the years, it is now possible to make it far less likely that decay will start. This is done by treating the molars with preventative resin restorations in Newport Beach. The resin is a material that can fill in the grooves. Similar to the sealants of the 1970s, the new resins are stronger and better able to protect the new teeth. The resin is placed over the grooves so they are filled in. Now the surface of the tooth does not have the deep grooves. It is easier to care for the teeth, and decay has a more difficult time establishing itself.
If you have been bringing your children to our office since they were young, we will discuss your options when the time is right. We are keeping an eye on their teeth and keeping a lookout for those six and 12 year molars. When they appear, we’ll be ready. If you have young children who have not seen a dentist, we will be happy to schedule a consultative appointment. Depending on the age of your children, we will determine if preventative resin restoration is a viable option. We know how important the health of their teeth is to a healthy future.
Our staff is trained to meet the unique needs of your children including preventative resin restorations in Newport Beach. We understand how important it is for them to develop good dental habits. We will work to make the experience a pleasant one, so your children will have a positive attitude toward dental care. We are ready to serve you. Call for a consultative appointment, and we can begin the life-long relationship that will ensure your dental health.
