Did you know...why sealing a tooth is better than waiting for decay and filling the cavity?

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are painted on the grooves of the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealing teeth can save time, money, and the discomfort sometimes associated with dental fillings.
Facts: Sealants may reduce occlusal (chewing surface) decay by as much as 65%. Decay damages teeth permanently. Each time a tooth is filled, more drilling is done, making the tooth a little weaker. The dental sealant product that we use does not contain Bisphenol A (BPA). Sealants are never bad when done well.

The following is a list of things that Dentists and Hygienists consider before placing sealants:

1. Is there previous decay experience?

2. How “groovy” are the teeth?

3. How well does the child clean their teeth?

Did you know...It is recommended your child see the dentist for the first time at age 2?

Did you know . . . it is important to have your first visit to the dentist when you are still little? We often see patients come in when they are 2 or 3 years old. Tips on making that first visit a good one: (1) Read your child a book about going to the dentist. Often your local library has some on hand or you may borrow one from us. (2) Arrive early at the appointment. This gives kids an opportunity to play in our play area and get comfortable. (3) Bring a stuffed animal along . . . to them it's like having a supportive friend come to help. (4) Pick a time of day that your child is typically in the best mood, i.e., after a nap, during morning hours.

We offer Low Dose Digital X-rays...

Low Dose Digital X-rays are a fantastic advancement in dental imaging. These dental x-rays are done electronically, almost instantly appearing on our computer screen, with approximately 75% less radiation. The benefit to our patients is that you would need eight years of these new state-of-the-art low dose digital x-rays to equal one year of the regular dental x-rays. The digital x-rays are also better because we can optimize the brightness and contrast, as well as enlarge them for easier viewing.

MidCoast Family Dentistry offers low dose digital x-rays because we have a commitment to bring the best of dentistry to our patients.
