The best way to help keep a child cavity-free is by teaching them how to care for their oral health each day at home, and with sealants. A sealant is a plastic coating used to protect the molars from plaque and acid that can wear away the enamel.
The sealants placed on children's molars can help protect their teeth from cavities. While sealants are usually used on children, they can be used on adults with decay and filling free molars.
To learn more about sealants and to find out what is best for you or your child to help prevent cavities, set up an appointment with us at Hammond & Proctor Family Dentistry.
