Good Morning #fanggang! 😁 1 VERY IMPORTANT, preventive measure you can do 👉🏼 when it comes to your child’s dental health?! 🧐👇🏼 ... #didyouknow Sealants have shown to ⬇️ risk of decay by ~80% in molars?! Here’s why:👇🏼 . Brushing & flossing are 🤴🏻 but it’s not always easy to clean every bit of your teeth – especially our back chewing ones (molars). They’re rough, uneven & a favorite hiding spot for food & cavity-causing bacteria. . Enter SEALANTS! A thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of the back teeth. They’re ❌ substitute for brushing & flossing, but can keep cavities from forming & can stop early stages of decay from becoming a full-blown cavity. . How Do They Work? When cavity-causing bacteria that live in our mouth meet leftover food, they produce acids that can create holes, aka cavities. After sealant has been applied, it keeps food out & stops bacteria & acid from settling on teeth. . Who Can Get Them? Anyone, but the earlier you get them, the better. Our 1st molars appear ~age 6, & 2nd molars break through ~age 12. Sealing them ASAP can keep them cavity-free from the start, which helps save 🕒 & 💰 in the long run. . How Are They Applied? Quick & painless. We clean & dry your tooth before placing an acidic gel on your teeth. This gel roughs up the tooth surface so a strong bond will form between tooth & sealant. After a few seconds, we rinse off the gel & dry the tooth once again before applying the sealant onto the grooves of tooth. We then use a special blue light to harden the sealant. . Can They Be Placed Over Cavities? They can be used over areas of early decay to prevent further damage to your tooth. Because some are clear, we can keep an eye on the tooth to make sure it’s doing its job. . Any Side Effects? With the exception of an allergy that may exist, there are no known side effects. . How Long Do They Last? Several years before they need to be reapplied. During your

Happy Wednesday! So one of my New Year's resolutions this year was to be more present and mindful with my kids. But sometimes I think that stopping to enjoy a moment takes too much time or work. But parents ALWAYS regret not doing it more when their kids are all grown. #guilty Thanfully we live in this incredible time where we all have access to photography. The ability to freeze those moments in time so that we can continue reliving them over and over (and remembering the closeness and love that we shared). 😍#fallminis are happening next Saturday!
