As a parent, you are responsible for the care and upkeep of your children’s teeth. Regular dental maintenance is a wise investment for their future. At Perspective Dental Centre in Calgary, our family dentistry caters to the needs of patients of all ages.
Protect Their Teeth
Sealants provide a protective barrier between teeth and damaging food particles, plaque, and bacteria. Although children may be very good about brushing their teeth as part of their daily routine, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are brushing their teeth correctly. Adding a sealant to your child’s molars (back teeth) when they first appear helps protect these vulnerable teeth from cavities and decay. The first set of molars come in between 5-7 years of age. The second set typically appears between the ages of 11-14. Sealants generally last around 10 years and can be reapplied at such time.
