Many children find brushing their teeth difficult and often miss those hard to reach teeth at the back of their mouths. We advise that parents keep a close eye on their children’s brushing techniques at least until they are seven years old and encourage them to brush twice a day for two minutes using a fluoride toothpaste.

Help your child avoid becoming one of the 84 per cent of all adults who have at least one or more filling – speak to your dentist about fissure sealants.

Fissure sealant is a thin, coating applied on the chewing surfaces of teeth, which acts as a barrier and protecting the tooth from plaque and acids. It is highly effective treatment in preventing decay. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

Typically, children should get fissure sealants on their permanent molars and premolars when they erupt.
