The Nevada County Oral Health Program, in collaboration with Smile California, is bringing Smile Dental Services to Madelyn Helling Library to offer preventative services to all ages on Tuesday, August 1, 8:00 – 5:00 pm.
The dental van is coming to Nevada County as part of the BRUSH, FLOSS, SEAL campaign to help create awareness about the importance of molar sealants in preventing tooth decay. The Smile Dental Services van will be offering preventative services to all ages including sealants, x-rays, cleanings and exams. Sealants are a thin coating of material that serves as a protective shield to block germs and food from getting deep into the tooth. They are easy and painless to apply. The ideal age for placing sealants is when the permanent molars have come in, usually around 6-9 years.
For an appointment call 1-888-585-3368 or learn more at www.SmileNevadaCounty.com.
Did you know that once applied, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years?
