Preventing Sugar Bugs
Exam- We recommend an oral examination every 6 months to help prevent or catch any cavities forming. During your exam the Doctor will discuss with you and your child the proper techniques to brushing and flossing.
Digital Tooth Pictures- Digital x-rays are used to help us detect any sugar bugs that our eyes may not see. Cavities can form in as little as 48 hours therefore we prefer to take x-rays every 6 months.
Cleaning- Regular cleanings help keep the sugar bugs away and the gums healthy! We have an assortment of toothpaste flavors to choose from.
Fluoride (tooth vitamins)- Fluoride helps strengthen your teeth and prevent decay.
Sealants- Sealants help protect the deep and groovy teeth from cavities. The sealants material fills the grooves and “seals” off the tooth from food.
