Even though you make sure your child brushes every day, there are grooves and pits on the back teeth that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush. Dental sealants are a great option to protect these vulnerable areas.
Good home care involves thorough brushing and flossing. This daily hygiene helps to remove food particles and plaque from the surface of the teeth. However, on the chewing surfaces of molars, there are grooves and depressions that are difficult to reach with the bristles of your toothbrush. For this reason, bacteria tend to grow in these areas causing cavities, especially in our younger patients.Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that can be painted on the surface of these teeth to protect them from decay. While fluoride helps to kill bacteria and safeguard your teeth, sealants create a barrier over these fissures preventing bacteria from growing in them and making them easier to clean. Sealants are often recommended for children and even for adults who are at greater risk of decay.
Can Sealants Benefit My Family?
Dental sealants are a durable way to prevent tooth decay in children and adults. When applied to the teeth of children, they can be an especially effective way of stopping decay, since this age group is most prone to it.
