Dentist Dr Wei Shen asks...

Have you had your children's teeth sealed yet?

Applying sealants to your child's permanent teeth is a great way to protect them from decay. The sealant helps prevent problems by providing an invisible barrier to bacteria and plaque. It’s an almost invisible coating that we generally apply to your child's permanent back teeth, because they are more prone to cavities. To protect their teeth this way we need to see your child from around age three (unless you suspect something is wrong earlier).
