Since I had quite a few cavities when I was growing up, when I had my first child, I was determined to keep their teeth as healthy as can be. While that was easy when my daughter was young and I chose the foods she ate and brushed her teeth for her, it became more difficult as she grew older and became a more independent child. I learned a lot of tips and tricks for helping her maintain a healthy smile despite her quest for independence, and I want to share my advice on a blog to help other parents and people of all ages learn how to keep their teeth healthier than ever! My first tip is to look into dental sealants for children. Just one sealant helped keep my daughter's molars cavity-free for years!
