Seeking regular dental care is vital, especially for children. Making sure that your teeth and gums are completely healthy can be extremely beneficial for your overall dental health, and aside from routine dental visits you can easily take care of your oral hygiene from home between your appointments, but this can be difficult for children who are still learning how to take care of themselves and how to take on responsibility. Here at Family Care Dental Group, our Rogers Park dentist can provide your child with dental sealants which can help them fight off tooth decay or offer them restorative dental care in order to treat any other dental concerns.
We all know just how important it is to brush between meals, to floss and to stay away from too many sweets. But kids are still learning how to thoroughly brush their teeth and how to take charge of their own health. Kids are notorious for being difficult to coax into basic hygiene habits. They may be used to parents or guardians doing it for them when they were younger or they may just be acting their age. It is not uncommon for children to resist brushing or bathing, or even doing so thoroughly when they finally get around to doing so. Kids are also known for loving sweets. From cakes and candies to juices and sodas, a child’s diet and habits can contribute to cavities. As a parent, you may feel frustrated, but our Rogers Park dentist can provide you with a solution. Either one of our dentists, either Dr. Mark Mkrdichian or Dr. Ashor Elia, can provide your child with a dental sealant. A dental sealant is a thin shield that is placed over the child’s tooth, mostly protecting the roots of their molars where food can easily get stuck or be hard to clean out from. These sealants are clear and will dissolve very gradually over time, but they can provide a protective layer between your child’s teeth and harmful plaque buildup while they learn how to properly take care of their dental health on their own.
If your child needs any restorative dental care to deal with cavities or if you think they may benefit from dental sealants, call us here at Family Care Dental Group today. We can set up a time for you to meet with our Rogers Park dentist so they can get the care that they need.
