As a parent, ensuring the best possible oral health for your child is a top priority. That is why we offer dental sealants, a preventive treatment designed to protect your child’s teeth from decay. Our dentist and caring dental team are experienced in applying sealants, providing a quick, painless and effective shield against cavities, especially for those hard-to-reach molars.
Understanding Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are a clear or tooth-colored resin material applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth. These molars are most susceptible to decay due to their grooves, where food and bacteria often get trapped. Sealants block out plaque and acids, safeguarding the enamel of these teeth.
Our Sealant Application Process
The process of applying dental sealants in our office is child-friendly and comfortable:
- Preparation: We start by thoroughly cleaning your child’s teeth. A special solution is then used on the teeth to help the sealant bond effectively.
- Sealant Application: The sealant material is carefully brushed onto the molars’ chewing surfaces, filling the grooves and fissures.
- Quick and Easy Curing: We use a special light to quickly harden the sealant, ensuring it forms a durable protective barrier.
Why Choose Sealants for Your Child?
- Cavity Prevention: They are highly effective in preventing decay in the chewing surfaces of back teeth
- Durability: Sealants offer long-lasting protection, often holding up well for several years
- Simple and Painless: The application is a quick, non-invasive and pain-free process
- Ideal for Children: Sealants are most beneficial for children and teenagers, as they protect during the cavity-prone years
