Another Easy Way to Prevent Child Tooth Decay
Even with careful brushing, cleaning every part of your mouth is hard. We know that this is especially true for children just learning proper tooth care. Utilizing dental sealants protects their teeth from the bacteria, acids, and plaque that lead to decay. Remember, once the tooth has decay, it is injured permanently and will require a filling or crown.
What you should expect: 1) The tooth (or teeth) is cleaned and sterilized. 2) A thin white or clear plastic coating is applied. 3) A curing light is focused on the sealant to bond it into place. The entire procedure takes only minutes and requires no shots, drills, or the removal of any tooth structure. The application of dental sealants is one of the easiest and best procedures both children and adolescents can have done to protect their natural teeth!
