You may not be able to monitor your child’s sugar intake when they are away, but sealing up the vulnerable parts of their teeth can block sugars and bacteria from causing dental decay.
DO NOT waste a minute when it comes to a dental recommendation for sealants on your little one. The end of summer is a great time to ask your dentist if your little ones are good candidates for this (no drilling and no discomfort) type of cavity protection procedure.
The Dental Data and Analysis Center, tracked dental benefits claims of nearly a half-million enrollees within the Delta Dental system. The claims covered kids and adolescents, 6 to 15 years old, from 1998 to 2003.
-According to the study, children with sealants were 78% less likely to need fillings than children without sealants.
Who Benefits Most From Sealants?
Children and adolescents with:
- Larger grooves or “pits” in teeth.
- Poor brushing habits.
- Sugary diets.
Besides the increased oral health benefits of children with sealants, a family can expect to save a drastic amount of money and time on future dental visits.
