Fluoride, Sealants, Fillings: Choosing the Right Superhero for Your Child’s Oral Health

Superman or Spiderman? Batman or Wonder Woman? Our team of pediatric dental specialists can help you determine which superhero treatment options are best for your child’s health! We know that some of the first times children need flouride, sealants, or fillings can be a bit scary because they have never experienced procedures like this before.

The team at Children’s Dental Zone are grateful for the opportunity to care for your child and make them feel calm and safe while we take care of their dental needs.

While dental treatment options can’t help your child climb up skyscrapers like Spiderman or fly through the sky like Superman, they can certainly help in maintaining your child’s oral health.
Unsure which superhero they need? We’ve got you covered. Read on to see what dental services can help your child’s oral health soar to new heights!

Fluoride – The Hulk that delivers superhuman strength to teeth.

Maybe fluoride isn’t superhuman like the Hulk. However, fluoride is a beneficial element that prevents cavities by strengthening tooth enamel. And fluoride can even reverse early cavities that have just started to form.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends two treatments a year. Our team of caring dental specialists will arm your child’s teeth with (almost) superhuman strength to fight cavities when they visit our office for their cleaning and check up every 6 months. Let fluoride do some Hulk-size protecting for your child’s teeth.

Sealants – The Iron Man that protects teeth from decay.

Teeth have a lot of nooks and crannies and sometimes a toothbrush can’t reach all the pits and grooves. Sealants serve as the Iron Man in disguise to protect these vulnerable areas of teeth by “sealing out” plaque and food much like Iron Man’s armor protects him from the bad guys, which is especially important for permanent teeth coming in starting around age 6.

Sealants are a wonderful first line of defense when it comes to caring for your child’s teeth and preventing cavities from forming. Your child will leave the office fighting decay like a pro!

Fillings – The Wolverine that contains healing powers for teeth.

The healing powers of a filling don’t come close to Wolverine’s, but fillings can be used to either fill or repair cavities and other decay or defects on teeth. Our pediatric dentist can let you know if composite resin or ionomer would be best for your child’s treatment needs.

Whether you’re looking to strengthen your child’s teeth, protect from decay, or repair a cavity, choose a superhero like Wolverine to treat your child’s teeth and benefit his or her oral health.
At Children’s Dental Zone, we take great measures to ensure our young patients feel cared for. We believe that early treatment is the best defense. Who wouldn’t want a superhero’s protection?
