Problems which can be prevented with early detection
Tooth decay can be prevented by just fluoride gel application and pit and fissure sealants. This plays a pivotal role in kids . We can’t restrict the kids from taking chocolates or sticky foods. Prevention is overemphasized here.
A lot of habits like thumb sucking, Tongue thrusting, mouth breathing, lip biting etc., can lead to improper jaw development or improper tooth alignment which will later require surgery and clip treatment. Simple removable appliances will help us to correct the issue and prevent major problems later.
Though preventive treatment is optional,the benefits are paramount. So we at Tooth town insisit on a routine dental check up every 6 months, regular teeth cleaning and xrays if required will help us have a healthy mouth.
