Unfortunately most of us have known about toothache since childhood. Caries affects both children and adults but unlike adults, children’s teeth are more susceptible to dental diseases. The reasons for this: it is both the love of babies for sweet and lack of vitamins, and some difficulties with children ‘s hygiene. Of course any disease is better to prevent and if it concerns child caries then prevention comes first.
At the Prime dental clinic in Kiev, we offer a full range of dental services and preventive measures for our young clients:
Treatment of children’s caries
Tooth fluorination is the saturation of dental enamel with fluorine, one of its main elements. Fluoride along with calcium are the main components of tooth enamel. And healthy enamel is the best protection against tooth decay and a guarantee of dental health. Saturation of the tooth with fluoride strengthens it, destroys bacteria and provides tooth protection for a long time. Our specialists carry out both conventional and deep fluorination of teeth: Conventional fluorination involves applying a special gel to the surface of teeth. Deep tooth fluoridation is a dental procedure which consists first in drying the tooth surface then applying a gel and then coating the tooth with a special medicinal substance which closes the tooth and this in turn intensifies the tooth enamel with fluorine and provides long-term protection of the tooth from negative effects of various external factors.
Fissure sealing is a preventive measure that protect the tooth fissure with a special material. Fissures are depressions and buggers that are on all teeth except cutters and fangs; bacteria usually accumulate in these depressions, which are very difficult to clean from germs. Fissure sealing is a very effective remedy for tooth decay and is usually carried out at the age of 6-7 years when the first permanent tooth appear. Considering that the main mineralization of tooth enamel occurs in the first three years after teething, the sealing of the fisses is a very effective preventive measure to avoid tooth decay and ensure the health of enamel in the future.
