If you want your child to have the best oral health possible, it’s best to consider dental sealants. Dental sealants can help your child have a strong and healthy smile because they protect the teeth against dental issues, like tooth decay and enamel erosion. This is especially helpful because children’s oral hygiene routines aren’t usually the most efficient.
Dental sealants are very thin barriers that are painted onto the teeth and hardened with a special light. The treatment is quick, painless, and easy. It can be completed shortly after a dental cleaning at our office. That way we know the teeth are pristine. The sealants can protect your child’s teeth for many years to come. In fact, the regular pressure of everyday chewing won’t affect the sealants at all. If the sealants need to be reapplied later down the road, our dentist will do so at a dental cleaning appointment.
Fortunately, children aren’t the only ones who can benefit. You can as well, as long as your teeth are healthy, they don’t have any dental issues, and they don’t have any fillings. Your dentist will determine the right time for you and your child to protect your teeth with sealants.
