Your Corona dentist knows that you may already know what a dental sealant is, however, you may not necessarily have learned a whole lot about this treatment yet. If that’s the case, then we invite you to visit our Corona, CA practice just as soon as you can for a pediatric dental checkup! During this time, you can gather a much more in-depth understanding of sealants, what makes them so exceptionally beneficial for your child’s oral health, and you may set up a time for your child to receive them! For now, start with some new ways to view them!

#1: As Tooth Protectors

Just think of dental sealants as tooth protectors, suggests your Corona dentist, because that’s what they are. They’re just very thin, completely safe barriers that are going to allow your child to get through the day, every day, without plaque, food, etc., collecting on back tooth chewing surfaces. Instead, the barrier will keep these cavity-causing culprits from making contact with tissue (or hiding in grooves). They are easily brushed away!

#2: As Money Savers

We remind you that if your child has dental sealants and, as a result, does not develop cavities, then that is money that is not coming out of your pocket for additional visit and treatments like dental fillings!

#3: As Training Wheels

As you know, your kiddos aren’t accustomed to brushing just yet because they’re only just learning how to do it! They may put forth their best effort and may do a very impressive job. However, if that job isn’t removing all plaque and bacteria, in addition to food debris, then teeth are going to develop tooth decay. With this in mind, your Corona dentist suggests you think of dental sealants as training wheels. They keep the most difficult to maintain parts of your child’s teeth safe, while your child learns to brush effectively and thoroughly!
