You are always going to have to be alert when it comes to your children growing up and caring for their health, especially their teeth, as these will always be changing, and with that comes the ever present threat of tooth decay, a ,major problem in children. In the beginning, keeping their teeth clean is down to you until they learn to do things on their own. If you teach them well, it should at least be damage limitation. The real problems come when you send them off to school, because with their new found freedom comes the discovery of all things containing sugar. Now you can try to get them to clean their teeth when they get home, but this is always going to be hard because sweets and drinks are lovely. So, you should drag them to the dentists and have them kitted out with dental sealants. This is a small film of plastic that is melted onto the surfaces of the teeth and prevents any acids and bacteria from eating away at the enamel of the teeth. They are robust and strong, fitted in a matter of minutes and can last from 5-10 years. It is the only way that you can at cross off at least one of the things from your worry list. For more information, call Mulberry dental care in Walton about dental sealants and they will direct you to the right places to go in Kingston-upon-Thames to have them fitted.
