Are you doing all that you can to start your child off on the right path when it comes to her oral health and hygiene? Here at TruCare Dental, our Albuquerque pediatric dentist offers a number of supplementary preventative services that can save your child from the pain and difficulty of common dental health issues like tooth decay, while also saving you the money and hassle of treating such problems. One of the most popular services of this kind is the use of dental sealants. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that our Albuquerque pediatric dentist can put in place over your child’s adult molars as they begin to erupt. The coatings protect these first adult teeth from decay for several years at a time. We all know that children are highly prone to cavities, whether it is because they have a sweet tooth, they do not like to brush their teeth and floss, or other similar reasons. With dental sealants, you are being proactive by acknowledging the risk of decay and keeping your child’s teeth safe from it. In doing so, you are helping you and your child—saving you money in the long run, and beginning your child’s adult dental life with the first few adult teeth being as healthy as possible. The sealants are usually not visible when your child smiles or opens her mouth, so there are no cosmetic issues that come into play with this amazing preventative procedure. Our Albuquerque pediatric dentist would be happy to make more personalized preventative recommendations for your child during your next visit here at TruCare Dental.
