Here at the office of Dr. Sevak Abrahamian, the top Wilmington dentist, we are proud to provide high quality dental care services to patients of all ages – the whole family is invited to our dental office! When it comes to our younger, pediatric patients, a common issue that our Wilmington dentist often detects and treats here is dental decay and early childhood cavities. There are several factors that come into play that can cause early childhood cavities. Often, children have what is considered a “sweet tooth” – a love for sugary treats and greater intake of sugars overall. Eating these sugary foods regularly can greatly increase the risk of developing tooth decay and cavities. Another factor that comes into play is a child’s commitment to cleaning their teeth and gums each day – often, tooth brushing time is not a child’s favorite activity! Therefore, sugar can end up sitting on the teeth for hours, leading to a much higher risk of decay. Further, many children partake in what is considered “grazing” – eating small amounts of food, like cereals, often throughout the day. These small, frequent meals can increase chances of decay and activities as well. Keeping up with regular visits to our Wilmington dentist can help in earlier detection and treatment of such early childhood cavities.
