Keeping your child’s teeth healthy
For children cleaning their back molar teeth thoroughly can be difficult. This is because they often haven’t developed the strength and dexterity to hold their toothbrush correctly so it reaches into the deep pits and fissures of these teeth.
This is a common area of decay for children’s teeth. The application of a fissure sealant to these teeth can help prevent decay developing. A fissure sealant is a tooth coloured resin material that is applied to the back teeth and fill the grooves and making the teeth smooth and much easier for you and your child to clean.
Application of fissure sealant is a very simple, pain-free procedure that only takes a few minutes for each tooth and will last for several years.
As your child’s teeth develop it is important you bring them in to see the John Street Dental team every six months for a check-up appointment. This will help us detect and treat any problems early.
