Pediatric Dental Pictures, Piedmont CA

Effective toothbrushing disrupts the colonization of bacteria on the tooth. Toothbrushing, fluoride, and proper diet all contribute to healthy teeth.
White Spot Lesions
This enamel has begun to demineralize or dissolve. With proper tooth cleaning and fluoride applications, this process can be reversed. Application of fluoride varnish will aid in the remineralization (reversal) of this enamel lesion.
A dental visit is needed because tooth decay has started.
If you see this, the child needs a dental visit as soon as possible. Monitor the “gums” for evidence of a swelling (infection).
