Children's Dental Sealants

Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!

While we all try to do a good job brushing our teeth, it can be hard to reach the plaque and food in the deep grooves in the back teeth. This results in bacteria and plaque formation, which will cause decay. And once the tooth has decay, it is impaired permanently and will need a filling or a crown. 

The use of dental sealants can offset a child’s difficulties with brushing properly, guarding their teeth from harm. The procedure is harmless, painless, and takes just a few minutes to achieve. After the tooth (or teeth) is cleansed and sterilized, a thin coat of a white sealant is coated on the tooth. Then a curing light is directed toward the sealant to bond it into place. These steps require no shots, drills, or the reduction of any tooth structure. Placing dental sealants is one of the best pre-emptive actions both children and adolescents can have done to preserve their natural teeth!
