Is your oral health care ready for the fall season and all the sweets and treats that come with it? With Halloween and Thanksgiving fast approaching, it is important to make sure your oral health care is at its peak. This includes taking care of your teeth or gums and any other aspects of your oral health. To prevent tooth decay and cavities that can commonly arise, consider dental sealants for your teeth.
Dental sealants are a tooth restoration treatment designed to coat your teeth with a specialized gel that can protect your smile from harmful acids and bacteria that contribute to tooth decay. Dental sealants can lower your risk for tooth decay by as much as 80%. Furthermore, sealants last up to 10 years before they may need to be applied.
Dental sealants are highly effective and safe for children as young as six, because it is the age at which a child’s molars begin to grow in. If a child has dental sealants, they are three times less likely to develop cavities. This helps ensure that any ailments or missteps in a child’s oral health care will not necessarily spell disaster for their teeth.
