Dental Sealants for Children

An Easy Way to Prevent Cavities

Even careful daily brushing can miss certain areas of teeth. As teeth are exposed to bacteria and acid, plaque will form. If left for a prolonged period of time, decay sets in. Any amount of decay is permanent damage that requires a restoration. 

There is a technique that can greatly help to prevent cavities. First, the teeth are cleaned and sterilized. A thin layer of the sealant is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth. With a curing light, the sealant is bonded to each tooth. And in just a few minutes, the whole procedure is complete. No shots, drilling, or tooth removal are necessary. 

This treatment has proven to be very effective in reducing cavities and helping children and adolescents keep their teeth for a lifetime.
