As a parent, nothing is more important to you than your child’s health and well-being. To promote them both, you work hard to teach proper oral hygiene habits at home and maintain their preventive appointments to set the foundation for healthy teeth and gums. While these are vital to maintaining their dental health, there may be a hidden danger in their mouth. Tooth decay is a chronic condition in children that is easily preventable. However, it is estimated that 42% of children under the age of 11 have had at least one in a primary tooth. In addition, another 23% currently have untreated cavities. With the risk for tooth decay so great, your family dentist in Windsor can help to protect their smile with dental sealants.
