Dental Sealants For Kids
Tooth decay is most commonly found in children. Luckily, cavities are preventable and there are solutions you could explore. Dental sealants are one of the solutions used to prevent cavities in children. Cavities in baby teeth can lead to cavities in permanent teeth which also can become a lifetime of oral health issues. Cavities don’t necessarily happen instantly, the bacteria in the mouth leaves acids which weaken our enamel slowly. It is recommended by the ADA that dental sealants are appropriate for kids ages 5 to 14.
