February is Children’s Dental Health Month. Attitudes and habits established at an early age, regarding keeping teeth healthy, are crucial in maintaining good dental health throughout every stage of life. Teach your child the importance of brushing and flossing their teeth, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding sugary snacks and drinks. Also, be sure to bring your child to see the dentist for regular checkups and ask the dentist if Dental Sealants are recommended for your child. The Dental Sealant is a thin coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth and provides a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. Once applied, the sealants can last up to ten years and help reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities by 50-80%. With proper care and good habits, children’s teeth can remain healthy and strong and your child can enjoy a lifetime of great dental health.
