You Can Seal your Teeth??!?!


Today my little girl got her back teeth (molars) sealed or “painted”, which means it is harder to get cavities as the bacteria slides away. It was explained in a fun Canadian way as the teeth now have a protective “ice layer” so the bacteria keeps sliding away instead of sticking to the teeth.

Why don’t they have this for adults!?!?! Ok, it is probably too expensive to do all the time on all your teeth, but what if they come up with a mouthwash type rinse that does the same thing for a couple of days? Not just kill some of the bacteria or freshen your breath, but provide a protective layer as well. No more cavities for anybody! That would be great for everybody, except dentists of course.

One can dream…
