In addition to regular dental check-ups, at-home dental care is key! Brushing at least twice a day is recommended, as well as flossing regularly. If you can avoid giving your child sugary foods until they are close to their toothbrush, that’s a good way to protect their smile too. By keeping your child’s smile clean and healthy every day, you can prevent future dental problems.
Another area of preventative dentistry is dental sealants. Dental sealants work by protecting your child’s smile from bacteria and decay. Sealants are a thin, protective coating that covers your child’s back molars. This protection keeps the deep crevices of their molars and hard-to-reach areas safe from tooth decay, plaque and bacteria. Dental sealants last for several years once applied to the back teeth.
