A routine dental check-up is important for a child's oral health. Usually, children are addicted to sugary content foods and drinks that damage the tooth enamel due to bacteria producing acid in the mouth. If the cavities are identified in the early stage, the dentist can restore the integrity of a compromised tooth by the dental filling procedure.
As the children are unable to express their oral health and if the parents are unaware of a child struggling with oral health problems over time likely to suffer dental decay and infection and become severe and may even need the extraction of the tooth.
Children do not brush and floss properly, which could develop cavities. So to prevent the cavities and to lay the foundation for good oral health a thin plastic sealant is a coating on the outer and inner chewing surface. It lasts for a long time by maintaining properly and visiting the dentist to keep the sealants intact.
