The oral health of your children is imperative to us, and excellent oral hygiene is an essential component of keeping them healthy. Houston’s Southern Dental not just takes care of tooth decay in children, but also attempts to instruct, both parents and children, about the good habits that keep teeth healthy and avoid dental disease.

Oral hygiene has a considerable effect on cavity formation. If teeth are not cleaned often and appropriately, they might suffer enamel weakening and become more vulnerable to decay. Additionally, studies have exhibited a connection between excellent oral health, superior school performance, and healthier social relationships.

Southern Dental dentists focus particularly on caring for your child’s baby teeth, until they are naturally lost. This is because of the significance these initial teeth serve in allowing children to chew appropriately and thus sustain excellent nutrition, in addition, to their part in speech development and in the sustenance of space for the permanent teeth’s ultimate eruption.

Sealants are an inexpensive way to stop tooth decay in children. Posterior teeth are especially vulnerable to trapped food particles that bring about decay. The dentists and dental hygienists at Southern Dental can use a special clear, plastic coating on the chewing surfaces to seal and safeguard these teeth.

Pediatric dentistry alludes to the oral care provided to children. Cavities and tooth decay are the main issues infants present due to their diet, and that is why it is important to teach children about good oral hygiene. Pediatric dentistry mainly includes stopping additional dental issues, in addition to teaching children on what excellent oral hygiene is and forming those habits as they mature.

Pediatric oral care attempts to maintain the well being of children’s teeth by arranging standard check-ups with the intention of maintaining clean teeth and also find any other dental issues as the child grows and the adult teeth emerge.  Your pediatric dentist will educate your child in appropriately brushing and flossing teeth in addition to providing parents with guidance on diets and other aspects that could have an effect on the oral health of the child.
