We’ll help your child prevent tooth decay with dental sealants!
One of the most common preventive dental procedures for children are dental sealants. They are plastic coatings that are put on the chewing surface of the child’s molars to fill in any pits and grooves in the tooth. Dental problems and tooth decay arise when food residues and bacteria get stuck in those pits and grooves with difficulty of reaching them with regular teeth brushing. Sealing those fissures at an early age, protects the teeth from accumulating any residues, eliminating or at least minimizing the risk of developing tooth decay in the future. Between dental sealants and maintaining good hygiene habits, your child’s teeth should remain healthy and decay-free for a long time. Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years, but need to be checked for wear and chipping at regular dental visits.
Dental sealants for all ages:
- Children and Teenagers – As soon as the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear or any time throughout the cavity prone years of 6-16.
- Adults – Tooth surfaces without decay that have developed deep grooves or depressions.
- Baby Teeth – Occasionally done if teeth have deep grooves or depressions and child is cavity prone.
Dental sealants are easily applied at Liberty Village Dental and the process takes only a couple of minutes per tooth. Proper home care, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new sealants. Call our Liberty Village Dental Office for more information!
