Bergenfield Dental Office

At our Bergenfield dental office, Teaneck Dentist, our team of helpful, experienced staff members believe in providing high quality dental services for patients of all ages. That means that we offer excellent dental care for children as well as adults. The main dental issue that tends to occur in children is dental decay and cavities. Dental decay is mainly the result of bacteria. Harmful bacteria such as tartar and plaque are constantly forming and spreading on the teeth and within the mouth. These bacteria, if not properly removed through diligent brushing and flossing techniques (something that younger patients tend to neglect), they can eat away at the teeth’s enamel, causing small holes of decay called cavities. Cavities can be painful and require varying extents of dental work.

One way to prevent dental decay in children that we recommend at our Bergenfield dental office is the use of dental sealants. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are placed over your children’s teeth in order to protect them from decay. They are typically used on the back teeth, because this is where most chewing happens and therefore where the most decay usually occurs. The plastic coating fill in and cover up the grooves that are hard to brush and clean thoroughly, where food and bacteria usually linger for a long time. We recommend that you bring your child in to our Bergenfield dental office for dental sealants as soon as their first permanent molars grow in. We would love to discuss with you further during your child’s next appointment at Teaneck Dentist.

If you are interested in learning more about dental sealants or any of the other various services available to you and your family at our Bergenfield dental office, we invite you to visit the Teaneck Dentist website.

Your child’s teeth are not only important, but they are also at risk for cavities now more than any other time in their lives. Children require extra fluoride treatments to strengthen their smile, as well as fight cavities. However, some teeth in particular are at an even greater risk than others. Premolars and permanent molars are the teeth you and your children use for chewing more than any other in your mouths, and as such they subject to greater abuse, wear, and are far more likely to develop a cavity than the other regions of your smile. For this reason, the CDC as well as your local Bergenfield general dentist strongly suggest that all children from the ages of six to fourteen receive dental sealant to protect them from decay.

At your Bergenfield general dentist our goal is to apply dental sealants as soon as permanent molars grow into your child’s smile to prevent tooth decay from ever reaching them in the first place. Dental sealants are as important a part of your child’s dental prophylaxis as fluoridated water and regular brushing and flossing. You never have to worry about a painful procedure, the process of applying a dental sealant is not complicated or invasive in anyway. The molars are simply cleaned, dried, prepped, rinsed and dried a final time, before the sealant is applied to the enamel of those teeth. Properly applied and cared for dental sealant can last up to 10 years.

At the Teaneck Dentist we are proud to offer state of the art dental procedures to our local patients for the very best in oral health care. We provide pediatric dental care in an environment that your child will feel comfortable learning about proper dental hygiene in. Through the use of dental sealants our Bergenfield general dentist can protect the molars of your smile for up to a decade to prevent them from tooth decay, and as such keep you from ever needing to have them treated for cavities through costly dental fillings. Dental sealants insure that your child’s teeth are well protected through some of the most crucial years of their lives for a smile that will last a lifetime.
