When children are young, many of their teeth have deep pits that are hard to clean resulting in high risks for cavities. That is why dental sealants are popular in protecting teeth in children on their molars from tooth-decay.
Dental sealants are thin coatings that are applied to the surfaces of your back teeth in order to prevent them from tooth-decay. Sealants are hard to see and are not usually visible by others. However, dental sealants can last as long 5 to 10 years protecting your children’s teeth from severe damage and gum disease.
Dental sealants are applied after your teeth are cleaned. The dental sealant is easily painted over the tooth and hardens as it dries. This sealant acts as a shield against bacteria and cavities.
With dental sealants preventing dental problems, you can keep your child’s smile in happy shape for years to come!
