After a thorough examination, Dr. Mandalia will recommend the most appropriate treatment to help create healthy, bright smiles.
Cavity Prevention For Children
One of the most common dental concerns that younger patients face is cavities. Cavities develop when plaque, a sticky film that overs the teeth, clings to the teeth and is not properly removed. After the acid forms, it begins to break down the tooth enamel, which inevitably leads to the development of a cavity. If left untreated, it can lead to a dental abscess and a root canal may need to be performed to stabilize the affected tooth.
Preventive dentistry can help reduce your child’s risk of cavities. To help keep the smile healthy, it is also important to brush the teeth at least twice a day, floss daily and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. Eating a healthy diet with limited sugar can also help improve and support the long-term health of the smile.

During the examination, our team will screen for any development issues, structural concerns, orthodontic problems, and oral health diseases. As soon as the baby teeth begin to erupt, children can develop serious dental health conditions like gum disease and tooth decay. Taking the proper steps to protect the teeth and gums can reduce their risk for complex dental problems.

We believe a healthy smile is achieved at home and in the dental office.
