Tooth Tip Tuesday [SPONSORED]
Need advice on the best way to take care of your children's teeth?
Pediatric Dentist Dr. Safari at Atlantic Pediatric Dentistry in Little Silver offer this fact:
You can literallly seal off trouble when your child's permanent molars come in at around age six. Thin protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and can prevent decay in the pits and fissures.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sealants can significantly reduce cavities. Yet only one in three U.S. kids receives dental sealants.
I had never even heard of this until I became a parent, but I just took my boys to Dr. Safari to have the sealants done, and they were in and out of there in no time! The procedure was fast and simple and now I have less worry about my kids getting cavities!
