Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Don't overlook your children's teeth and gums when making crucial choices regarding their health and wellbeing. Children who develop good oral hygiene practices at an early age are more likely to retain excellent brushing and flossing as adults, experience much fewer dental issues throughout life, keep a positive self-image, and perform better in school than kids with poor oral health. Your involvement as a parent is crucial in assisting children in developing lifetime oral hygiene and smiles.

On your back teeth, sealants are an excellent approach to prevent cavities and dental decay (molars). Because they are utilized for chewing and are the hardest to reach and clean, these teeth are the most susceptible to cavities and decay. Molars first appear between the ages of 5-7, and a second set appears between the ages of 11–14. To provide early protection, it is recommended to have a sealant applied when the molars first erupt.
An adhesive is first placed to the teeth in order to install a sealant. The sealant is then applied as a liquid, as if it were being painted directly onto the tooth, over the adhesive. The liquid then solidifies, forming a shield between your teeth and any bacteria, food particles, or plaque. When properly maintained, sealants endure for roughly 10 years and can be reapplied.
