Did you know that every year children across the United States lose a total of 51 school hours due to dental disease? Due to eating sweets and an inconsistent toothbrushing routine, cavities are especially prevalent in kids. According to statistics, tooth decay affects 50% of children ages 2-11 and increasing to 78% among 17 year olds. Although dental decay ranks number one among the most common chronic childhood diseases, the fact is that it’s also almost entirely preventable. At Children’s Dentistry of Morristown, your pediatric dentist in Cedar Knolls
provides a comprehensive preventive care program, including periodic checkup examinations to closely monitor the development and health of a child’s teeth, gums and jaw and the provision of care as required to address any harmful oral health conditions. For extra protection against cavities, we also offer periodic fluoride treatments to strengthen the dental enamel and place dental sealants on the surface of newly erupted permanent molars—a practice which helps to prevent plaque, food particles and debris from accumulating in the deeply groove biting surfaces of the back teeth. As part of your child’s checkup, we also provide a thorough professional teeth cleaning, removing plaque buildup from difficult to reach spots your child may have missed while brushing. We also take the opportunity to guide your child on how to brush and floss properly, and aim to impart the importance and responsibility of maintaining excellent oral hygiene.
At Children’s Dentistry of Morristown, you can trust in us to provide your child with compassionate and personalized care at every visit. As your pediatric dentist in Cedar Knolls
, we’re committed to making dental care a positive experience for you and your child. To learn more about our pediatric dental services or to schedule your next visit, call our friendly staff today!
