Is Fluoride necessary?

Fluoride is safe and very effective when used in small amounts. It’s often used in dentistry due to its ability to strengthen tooth enamel, which makes teeth less vulnerable to bacteria and cavities.

Why does my child need fillings on baby teeth?

If your child has decay that is not treated, it can spread to other areas, causing more damage and infection, therefore it is essential.

Why does my child get cavities when all they drink is milk and rarely have juice or sugar?

If your child has decay that is not treated, it can spread to other areas, causing more damage and infection, therefore it is essential.

What happens if my child gets a tooth knocked out?

If a permanent tooth gets knocked out, it has the best chance of survival if it’s replaced within 5 minutes. Since that window of time isn’t always feasible, place the tooth in milk to preserve it and seek dental care immediately. If a baby tooth is knocked out, your focus should be to stop the bleeding. Rinse the area gently with water, then use a clean washcloth to apply light pressure on the site until the bleeding has stopped. Again, follow up with your dentist as soon as possible.
