Help Your Children Have Healthy Teeth

December 9, 2013

Here at Blanco Circle Dental Care, we appreciate the importance of your child’s teeth, and Dr. Bianco is ready and able to start your child off in the right direction. We understand that children may have fears when visiting dentists, which is why our friendly and knowledgeable team is ready to welcome them with open arms.

Child dentistry is very important because it can prevent problems before they arise, and sets up your child for success in the future. A common practice in children’s dentistry is dental sealants. Because a child’s tooth is more susceptible to cavities and decay, sealants provide protection by having a plastic covering painted in the grooves of the tooth to protect from future or further harm. Sealants are primarily applied to premolars and permanent molars, as the grooves are deeper than the other teeth and more susceptible to deterioration.

Along with sealants, fluoride treatments are also involved in child dentistry. Fluoride plays a part in preventing decay, and acts as a magnet for attracting other minerals to build strong teeth like Calcium and Phosphate.   Although fluoride does not prevent cavities from emerging, it can certainly delay their arrival, giving your child a better chance to have beautiful, healthy teeth. Establishing routine brushing and flossing habits early on is a sure way of having your child’s smile be as beautiful as possible, and  Dr. Bianco as well as the Blanco Circle team are here to make sure your child has an awesome experience.

At Blanco Circle Dental Care, Dr. Gary Klugman and Dr. Christina Bianco provide quality general, cosmetic and sedation dentistry services. Our Salinas, CA dental office serves patients from Hollister, Monterey, Seaside, Prunedale, Marina, Greenfield, Gilroy, and King City. Call us today to schedule your next appointment.
