This Weeks Oral Health Message to you from Dr. Max:
Hi this is Dr. Max,
We often get asked at the office, what are sealants and how do I know if my child needs to get them? Dental sealants create a barrier against tooth decay, or what we like to call “sugar monsters.” Sealants are thin white coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of a child's permanent back teeth, where most cavities form. Applying a sealant is not painful at all and can be performed in one dental visit. By visiting your dentist or my office, we can determine whether or not your child can benefit from sealants.Thank you for visiting our site. I hope to see you in the office soon!"
