Dental caries (cavities) are astonishingly common among children. In fact, in 2015 -2016, 43 percent of children ages 2 – 19 had at least one cavity. That statistic marks a 50 percent decrease over four years earlier, which means that fewer children are suffering from dental decay. As amazing as that is, there is still a lot of room for improvement. That is why your children’s dentist in Auburn may recommend that your child receive dental sealants. This simple treatment has the potential to stop cavities before they start and prevent your little one from becoming another statistic.
