Modern dental treatment is quite different from that of many years ago. These days the idea is to prevent decay rather than waiting for it to happen and then fixing it, which can often be painful. By taking your children to a dentist such as Joondalup City Dental early, they can have some of the more modern treatment that works to reduce the risk of decay.
You may think the only thing to reduce the risk of decay is good dental hygiene. While it is true that this certainly helps, it is not the only way to avoid decay. In fact, it may not even be the best way, given that children don’t like cleaning their teeth and get out of it whenever possible. And they don’t always do it properly anyway. It takes a lot of effort for a parent to oversee cleaning every night when everyone is tired.
With new technology, children can have painless treatment that helps to avoid decay completely, at least in their molars. How? Molars are the chewing teeth and the flat surface is indented to ensure food stays there long enough to get properly chewed up. However, some molars have deeper indentations than others, with the result that the food gets jammed into the crevice and is difficult or even impossible to get out.
