Children and Tooth Decay

Preventing Tooth Decay in Children ???

Our modern diet and dentists neglecting to use fissure sealants are why tooth decay is still quite a prevalent dental problem in the young. Young children have a preference for sweet foods and are less disciplined around their home care/tooth brushing. Small areas of tooth decay can rapidly develop into larger areas of decay – even tooth loss if left untreated.

Dental fissure sealants, in combination with effective home care, significantly reduce the possibility of developing tooth decay. They have been shown to be an effective preventive dental treatment for your children’s teeth – providing protection well into adulthood. They are an excellent, cost effective preventive treatment for your children’s teeth.
