Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs my child might have a cavity?

Signs of a cavity include noticeable discomfort or pain in the mouth, sensitivity to hot and cold foods or drinks, visible holes or pits in the teeth, and dark stains on the tooth surface. Regular dental check-ups with Dr. Tesoriero can help in early detection and treatment.

Are dental sealants safe and effective?

Dental sealants are safe and highly effective against cavities! They’re applied as a liquid onto the grooves of the back teeth and then harden to form a protective shield over the enamel, blocking out bacteria and food particles.

How can I help prevent cavities in my child's teeth?

Preventing cavities involves establishing a routine of good oral hygiene, including brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing regularly, and reducing intake of sugary foods and drinks. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are crucial for spotting early signs of decay and applying preventive treatments like sealants.

How does SDF treatment work?

Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a liquid solution applied to cavities to stop decay. It’s a quick, painless treatment that strengthens tooth enamel and kills bacteria causing decay. SDF is especially useful for small cavities, hard-to-reach areas, or for patients where traditional drilling is challenging.

When is a crown needed instead of a filling?

We recommend crowns when a tooth is extensively decayed or damaged and cannot be properly restored with a filling. Crowns provide a full cover for the tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance.
