Dental sealants are an effective way to prevent cavities and protect your child’s teeth from decay. Dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (permanent molars), where cavities are most likely to occur.
During a sealant application, our experienced pediatric dentists will thoroughly clean and dry your child’s teeth before applying a special gel to help the sealant bond to the tooth surface. The sealant is then painted onto the tooth, where it bonds to the enamel and provides a barrier against harmful bacteria and acids.
Sealants are a safe and painless procedure that can be completed in just one visit. They are a cost-effective way to prevent cavities and reduce the need for more invasive dental procedures in the future. Sealants can last for several years and can be easily replaced if necessary. We recommend dental sealants for children with caries risk, as they can help protect your child’s teeth during the critical years of tooth development.
