Your kids might be doing an exceptional job with brushing and flossing. So much so that it almost brings a tear to your eye! You might be so on the dot with your checkup and cleaning planning for them that you feel like giving yourself a pat on the back. You might even keep sugar out of the house! As a result, you figure you’re right on the correct path that will keep your children’s smiles in perfect condition. Well. The truth is, you’re doing everything right. However, your Moreno Valley dentist still suggests you schedule dental sealants for your children! Why add this preventive treatment on to their dental care, you wonder? Our Moreno Valley, CA team will explain.
Kids’ Amazing Care Might Still Miss A Spot
Your Moreno Valley dentist hopes you remember that your kids can practice exceptional dental care at home. However, even with great attention to detail, they can miss a spot, especially in areas where bacteria tend to very easily hide. So, when you have the option of sealing bacteria out or letting them run rampant, we suggest choosing the dental sealants!
Kids Eat And Drink Throughout The Day
No matter how wonderful your preventive care is in the morning and in the evening (and even with your food choices at home), food is still being eaten. Drinks are still being consumed. Remember that it’s not just sugar added to foods but also natural sugar in drinks and fruit and carbohydrates that feed the bacteria in your smile and your children’s smiles. This fuels bacteria to release acids that will eventually cause decay. While you might take it upon yourself to clean your smile throughout the day, kids (especially when they’re in school) won’t necessarily have this luxury or the drive to do so. This is where dental sealants can come in, explains your Moreno Valley dentist. They help offer protection 24/7.
Even Adults Can Have Trouble With Nooks And Crannies!
Remember that kids aren’t the only ones who can have trouble avoiding decay, suggests your Moreno Valley dentist. Particularly with the highly grooved areas of back molars, it’s difficult to thoroughly clean out all of those nooks and crannies with a toothbrush (especially if you’re a kid). So, give your little one a break with the help of sealants!
