Sealants Prevent Cavities For Kids

Town Dental Group Sealants Prevent Cavities For Mint Hill KidsYour child’s first dental exam at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill should occur when the first teeth are in, usually between six months and one year of age.

During this first check-up we can discuss sealants, a clear layer of plastic applied to the grooved surfaces of the teeth.

Sealants protect the teeth and prevent cavities by filling in the crevasses where food particles can get caught and breed dangerous bacteria They are especially effective on the back teeth, where most cavities occur.

The application process takes only one short visit. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied to teeth and hardened: it’s quick and painless. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.

If properly cared for, sealants can last for many years, protecting your child during the most cavity-prone ages. Sealants can also be re-applied, as necessary.

Dental sealants from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill are an added barrier of protection for your child’s teeth. We offer pediatric dentistry, as well as general and cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Infant And Toddler Teeth Care

Infant and Toddler Teeth CareDid you know that caring for your infant’s teeth should begin even before they come in? To prevent bacteria growth, you can wash your baby’s gums with a wet washcloth after feedings. At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we recommend that you do.

Babies should never be put to bed with a bottle, no matter how tempting it is for tired parents. The sugars in milk or juice that stay in contact with teeth for hours can damage the enamel. When your child gets his first tooth, it is time to brush. Parents should use non-fluoride toothpaste until the child is two years old. Then, use only a tiny dab. Young children often swallow toothpaste while brushing. If a child ingests too much fluoride, teeth can become stained.

When a child is old enough to brush his own teeth, it is critical that an adult go over them after the child finishes to make sure they are clean. Many children thoroughly clean the chewing surfaces, but often fail to clean the backsides and gumline. Ask us about dental sealants – an extra protection against decay.

Monitor your child’s meals and snacks. We all know that sugary snacks are not only bad for growing bodies; they are also bad for teeth. Scheduling set times to drink anything other than water during the day can also help prevent cavities for children.

At Town Dental Group in Mint Hill, we provide children’s dentistry, and a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today.

Comprehensive Esthetic Dentistry At Town Dental Group

Comprehensive Esthetic Dentistry At Town Dental Group

If you want a movie star smile, Town Dental Group dentists can explain cosmetic dentistry options that can get you one. Our Mint Hill team has helped many people get the smile they’ve always wanted.

Whether you have damaged teeth, aging enamel, or teeth that need aligning or whitening, Town Dental Group can address your problem areas, provide you with an overall esthetic assessment, and discuss your specific concerns.

A smile makeover in Mint Hill typically involves two or more procedures, which may include: dental veneers, tooth implants, sculpting of gums, and teeth whitening or teeth bleaching.

Sometimes the initial examination reveals dental treatments that are necessary to correct other problems involving bite alignment or bone structure issues that, when treated, provide added satisfaction and a natural look to cosmetic procedures.

When Town Dental Group redesigns a smile, the teeth are treated as an integral element of the patient’s face. The lips, gums, mouth, facial structure, patient’s age, and coloring are all taken into consideration. This unified approach to cosmetic dentistry has helped Town Dental Group establish and maintain a stellar reputation in the Mint Hill professional dental community.

Town Dental Group in Mint Hill has years of experience in general and cosmetic dentistry, as well as kids dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Oral Rinses: An Extra Measure Of Protection For Mint Hill Kids

Oral Rinses: An Extra Measure Of Tooth Protection For Wyndemere Crossing Kids

Most parents know the basics of children’s oral health: limit sugar, make sure they brush and floss regularly, discourage between-meal snacking, and take them to the dentist for twice-yearly exams and cleanings. At Town Dental Group, your children’s dentist in Mint Hill, we’d add to make sure  they get enough calcium and Vitamin D. Many parents also give their kids fluoride supplements if their municipal water supply has an inadequate level of fluoride.

Is there anything else a concerned parent can do to promote children’s oral health? Yes! Have children use an oral rinse that contains fluoride.

Fluoride supplements help strengthen teeth that are still forming, but fluoride rinses help teeth that have already come in. A fluoride rinse is an added measure of protection.

We recommend North Carolina children use an oral rinse after they brush and floss. They should swish it around in their mouth for thirty seconds or so, and then spit it out. (Make sure your child doesn’t swallow it!) This should be the last substance in their mouth before they go to bed. The fluoride will remain on the teeth and help prevent new cavities from forming. It can also help stop any demineralization that has already begun by accumulating in the tiny fissures and fortifying the enamel.

Town Dental Group in Mint Hill provides children’s dentistry, as well as general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment for you and your kids today.
