Preventive care is an important element in any dental care plan. This is especially true in the case of children who often have high sugar diets that can lead to tooth decay. As a result, it is important for children to visit their dentist for check-ups and cleanings at least twice per year.

Another great way to protect young teeth is the application of tooth sealants. This procedure involves applying a plastic resin material to the grooves and pits of cavity prone teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier against oral bacteria to prevent the start of tooth decay. Applied soon after the eruption of new molars and premolars, tooth sealants could help your child to avoid the unpleasantness of cavities and fillings.
