November's Smile of the Month Club

Posted By: Dr. Brett Jerger

The holidays are upon us, and everyone is excited about the school break and various fun activities. The Jerger Pediatric Dentistry team wants you to enjoy your time, but remember to take care of your teeth and gums!

End-of-the-year celebrations often mean sweets and indulgences. There is cake and candy, soda and snacks. It’s a time of happiness and yummy foods. But, unfortunately, this can mean new cavities for our little ones.

We want you to enjoy your time without new cavities.

Healthy Holiday Smiles with Dental Sealants!

If cavities are a concern, we encourage a checkup to ensure everything is healthy and thriving. We can discuss dental sealants in Decatur, IL if we find your child is developing new cavities.

Dental sealants protect teeth from decay by providing a barrier between debris and dental enamel. We check the integrity of dental sealants at every dental visit and can touch them up as needed. On average, dental sealants can last up to three years or longer.

And dental sealants might help more little ones be included in our next Smile of the Month Club installment.

Check out November’s list below!
