While we do our part providing children’s dentistry services, it’s also important for parents to be knowledgeable about the best practices for your child’s dental health. Here is some important information:
The chewing surfaces of your child’s teeth aren’t smooth and flat. Instead, they are covered with tiny bumps and valleys called pits and fissures. These are the areas where plaque can easily build up and food can get stuck, making these surfaces susceptible to cavities. Applying a sealant over the top of the tooth is a way to prevent cavities from developing in these pits and fissures.
A dental sealant is a thin plastic film painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth. Sealants usually last between 5-10 years. As children’s teeth are the most susceptible to cavities, they can often benefit the most from dental sealant treatment.
If you’re looking for a dental clinic with experience working with families and children of all ages, give Moncton Dental a call today!
