Dental Health for School and Youth

Brush morning and night with a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Children over 8 years of age can brush on their own with adult supervision.

Dental Sealants help prevent tooth decay on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Around ages 6 and 12 years old, four adult molars grow in. Ask your dentist if dental sealants can help protect your child's teeth.
