Nursing Bottle Caries

Settling a baby to sleep with a bottle of milk, soft drink or fruit juice can cause plaque formation which eats into the tooth and cause decay. Frequent on demand breastfeeding past the age of 12 months can also cause decay or caries. Encourage your child to drink water.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on the biting surfaces of teeth to help prevent cavities. This procedure is painless, non invasive and is a preventative measure.  

Prevention is key and if young children are taught the proper brushing technique, eat a healthy diet and visit their dentist regularly, they are less likely to have cavities, tooth aches and infections. 

Regular check ups also help detect crowding, crossbite or a deep bite that may need early intervention and orthodontics.
