Like most parents, you probably look at your child’s smile and wish you could protect it for life. While dentists have not yet discovered an invincibility potion, dental sealants may offer the next best option for protecting your little one’s hard-to-reach teeth from tooth decay. If you have been considering this preventive treatment, think over the following three wonderful reasons to say, “yes.”

The Procedure Is Simple

Providing your child with dental sealants is a simple process. Your dentist and team recognize that you go above and beyond to ensure the comfort of your little one. In addition to practicing compassionate, gentle dentistry, we offer a dental sealant procedure is efficient and straightforward. We will clean your child’s back teeth, the dentist will carefully paint on a thin layer of plastic, and we will use a special light to harden the sealant in place.

Sealants Prevent Cavities

As the name suggests, this treatment provides a seal over your child’s tooth surfaces. These surfaces are not perfectly flat or smooth, but include small grooves and dips, where bacteria may hide. However, a dental sealant provides a barrier that keeps plaque – the leading cause of cavities and gum disease – from reaching the tooth tissue beneath. The result? Fewer cavities and more effective daily hygiene.

They Last For Years

Agreeing to sealants may save you time and money in the long run. This pediatric treatment protects your child’s teeth and remains in place for up to 10 years or more. Touch-ups may become necessary on a case-by-case basis. Ten years worth of cavity-free back teeth is certainly something to smile about.
