When you bring your child in to see our pediatric dentist in Jackson Heights NY, your child may be seen by Dr. Mazhar Alhadid, or one of our other top-notch dentists. Children are very prone to developing childhood cavities for several reasons. To begin with, children’s teeth often have many pits and grooves on them which makes it easier for plaque and food debris to stick to them. This makes it more likely that dental cavities will occur, since materials in the plaque will combine with carbs in your child’s mouth to create acids that will eat through your child’s teeth. Since children have not yet perfected their tooth-brushing skills, it is also likely that your children’s teeth are not being brushed as carefully as possible. You can help your child brush his or her teeth, but it is still important that your child comes in for regular dental checkups and cleanings to make sure that as much plaque as possible is removed from their teeth. At our office, children can get fluoride treatments and dental sealants, to help protect their teeth from dental cavities. Fluoride treatments will work to strengthen your child’s tooth enamel, making it more resistant to tooth decay. Dental sealants are painted onto cleaned and dried teeth, and are used on the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars. The dental sealants will fill in the pits and grooves in the teeth, and make it more difficult for any materials to stick to them. In addition, the dental sealants will act as a physical barrier to protect your child’s teeth from teeth decay.
