While you might sometimes think that up until the permanent teeth do not replace primary teeth the visits to the hygienist are not that important. Aren’t they all going to fall out after all?
But in reality, it is never to early to start. The plaque and tartar build-up on the primary teeth do spread the growth of bacteria and affects the all mouth tissues, including the new, permanent teeth, not to mention the formation of tooth cavities in both baby and new teeth.
Dental Sealants as part of Dental Hygiene for Kids
Dental sealants are very important to protecting your kids’ teeth from the appearance of cavities. We know they try hard to brush. But sometimes they are not too thorough, or genetics is letting them down when it comes to their teeth resistance to cavities. Also, any teeth that have deep pits or fissures are at significantly higher risk of forming cavities, as their surface retains bacteria that compromise their integrity in the long run.
During a routine examination, the Hygienist might be able to see that your’ kid’s teeth would require extra sealant in those hard to reach areas. It will add extra resistance and durability while being absolutely harmless and invisible.
If you are concerned about the cost of the procedures Ontario-wide government program Healthy Kids Ontario offers coverage of the hygienist’s procedures to eligible families in a low-income bracket.
