For all the effort you put into looking after your kid’s teeth, you are never going to prevent them from necking everything sugary the moment your back is turned; kid’s have their own agenda when they get together. Sure, you can teach them about brushing and the perils of tooth decay, but this will never stop things from going wrong with their oral health. But instead of wasting your breath barking against the inevitable, you can go down a route that will ensure that your children don’t suffer from tooth decay, and that is to have them kitted out with dental sealants as soon as the adult teeth develop in your children’s mouths. All you have to do is get them into a dentist’s chair and then let the dentist get to work: a thin film of plastic will be layered over the vulnerable surfaces of the teeth and it will be sealed in seconds. This will prevent any chance of bacteria from causing decay and you won’t have to worry about the threat for a good 10 years; by this time, your child should be well and truly looking after their own oral health, whilst having avoided all the problems that tooth decay can present.
