Pediatric Dentistry in Duncanville, TX
A cavity can cause discomfort and compromise current and future oral health. Dr. Donna and our team of dentists care about your child’s smile and offer cavity-fighting dental sealants and fluoride treatments to strengthen and protect teeth.
Back teeth have deep grooves that are hard to clean. Bacteria and food particles can hide in these grooves and cause cavities. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that fill grooves to create a smooth surface that’s easy to clean and resistant to decay. Dental sealants are easy to apply and comfortable for your child. They can last for many years.
Fluoride is a proven cavity fighter. When applied directly to teeth, fluoride bonds with other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel against decay. Children who drink bottled water instead of tap water may have a deficiency of fluoride. We’ll discuss the amount of fluoride your child receives through water, toothpaste, and other sources to determine the need for a supplement.
A cavity-free checkup entitles children to membership in the No Cavity Club, a fun way to recognize good oral hygiene! Each month, recipients are registered in a drawing. Three lucky winners receive prizes.
