Front teeth are the most visible part of a smile. Repair work done to this area is especially important. You want your child’s smile to be beautiful and bright.
Keep reading to learn how dentists fix cavities when they are on a child’s front teeth.
Not only can cavities on front teeth be painful, but they also are visible and damage smiles. Fortunately, dentists fix cavities on front teeth quite easily. Here’s how they do it:
This is the most common way dentists fix cavities, even on front teeth. When many people think of fillings, they think of the silver fillings that are easily seen. However, dentists usually use fillings that are the same color as the tooth.
These fillings allow your child to have a beautiful smile, even after a cavity.
Of course, it is better to prevent cavities in the first place. Regular trips to a dentist, like Kool Smiles, will give your child healthy teeth for years to come.
Prevention starts at home. Begin brushing your child’s teeth with a tooth brush and pea-sized drop of tooth paste as soon as the first tooth appears. Once your children are old enough, help them brush and teach them to do it twice a day.
It is also a good idea to limit sweets and sugary drinks. These can cause tooth decay, which is the first step to a cavity.
Every child should visit the dentist, even children as young as one-year-old.
