Pediatric Dentistry: pediatric dentistryis the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence. The specialty of pediatric dentistry is recognized by the American Dental Association, Royal College of Dentists of Canada, and Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.

It is very important that primary teeth are kept in place until they are lost naturally. Most children will have their baby molars until they are 12 years-of-age! These teeth serve a number of critical functions. 

  1. Maintain good nutrition by permitting your child to chew properly.
  2. Are involved in speech development.
  3. Help the permanent teeth by saving space for them and "guiding" them into their correct position. A healthy smile can help children feel good about the way they look to others.

How do sealants work?
Baby teeth and permanent teeth have deep pits and grooves on the chewing surface of the tooth. These areas are difficult to keep clean, even with good brushing habits. Dental sealants work by filling in or "sealing" the deep pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Sealants prevent plaque and bacteria from accumulating in those deep grooves and pits, thus reducing your child's risk of developing dental decay. Sealants are tooth colored plastic material. The application is fast and comfortable and can effectively protect teeth for years to come.
