There is a danger lurking in America that affects a quarter of the population of children before they even reach the age of five. By the time your children reach ages 12-15 years they will have a 50% chance of having tooth decay. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “Tooth decay affects more than one-fourth of U.S. children aged 2–5 years and half of those aged 12–15 years.”
Every parent strives to protect their children from harm and keep them safe. According to the CDC, “Oral health is often taken for granted, but it is an essential part of our everyday lives.”
Dr. James Rhode is a gentle family dentist located in Bucks County near Philadelphia who has been in the business of providing the best possible family dental health. Many of his patients refer to Dr. Rhode as the “top dentist” and the “number one” gentle family dentist in the Philadelphia area. Dr. Rhode is experienced in treating family members of all ages and uses sealants to provide healthy young mouths with a fighting chance against tooth decay.
WebMD states, "Sealants are a thin, plastic coating that are painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth -- usually the back teeth (the premolars, and molars) -- to prevent tooth decay. The painted on substance quickly bonds into the depressions and groves of the teeth forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.” WebMD goes on to state that children should get the sealants to protect their molars through the cavity prone years from ages 6 to 14 years of age. It is noted that this will provide protection from decay for up to ten years although it is recommended that they be checked regularly by the dentist for wear and tear.
