Managing the care of a child’s teeth can be a challenging job. They would like to do it themselves….which is great, but they may not do the best job. Nothing can replace the need for brushing and flossing. Being cavity free is important, and sealants can help.
Sealants are a plastic material the dentist can apply with a brush at your child’s regular visit. This is painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to create a barrier from plaque and acid attacks. They are tough enough to stand up to daily chewing.
By protecting these teeth helps because they are now as accessible as the front teeth for brushing and flossing, and the surface is not as easy to clean either. Nothing like the most challenging area to be the most difficult to get clean in the first place.
Ask about sealants for your kids at their next regular dental check-up in Plymouth, MN. Gain protection and a peace of mind knowing their teeth are safe from plaque.
