Children's Dental Sealants

An Effective Treatment to Prevent Child Tooth Decay

Even proper brushing can sometimes miss the contours and grooves of back teeth, even for adults. Left untouched, acids and bacteria can lead to plaque formation that will develop into a cavity. Even the smallest cavity is permanent damage that needs a restoration. But there is a way to help prevent this from happening. One application of a dental sealant is the easy treatment that makes a difference in the prevention of decay.

This procedure takes just minutes and does not require any shots, drilling, or removal of tooth structure. After teeth are cleaned and then sterilized, one thin application of the clear or white sealant is applied to the biting surfaces of back teeth. The dentist then bonds the sealant to the teeth with a curing light, and the whole procedure is quickly completed. It is invisible in appearance and not detectable by the patient. This treatment has been proven to be very effective for children and adolescents in maintaining their natural teeth to be cavity-free!
