At Summer Kids Dental in Las Vegas, we believe that teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and the best way parents can ensure their kids have good dental health is through prevention.
We can also apply dental sealants during an appointment. Dental sealants are an added layer of protection for teeth. Typically applied to the chewing surfaces, sealants are a thin resin coating that seal the grooves and fissures in molars that are especially vulnerable to decay. It’s a quick and painless way to protect your child’s teeth.
At home, of course, kids need to brush and floss their teeth every day. Ideally they’ll brush after every meal. They need to floss, too, to get out the gunk that builds up between teeth.
Make sure you child uses a fluoridated toothpaste. Most toothpaste has fluoride, but not all of it, so make sure to check the label.
On average, children begin to lose their teeth around the ages of six or seven. In one of the interesting miracles of nature, teeth tend to fall out in the same order they came in. Tracking the development of incoming adult teeth is another thing we do during checkups.
