Your child’s mouth has hard-to-reach places, and even with the best oral hygiene habits at home and routine dental care, plaque and decay can still be problematic. Dental sealants to the rescue! This simple dental service can help your child smile with confidence.
Being quick, effective, and completely noninvasive makes this procedure ideal to help prevent tooth decay and avoid fillings in even the most susceptible areas in your child’s mouth.
What Exactly ARE Dental Sealants
This children’s dental solution is a thin, clear or white resin coating placed over the biting surface of the teeth (generally molars) to protect them from initial or continued decay. The liquid is painted on and bonds directly to the tooth to leave a hard, protective layer. Taking this easy preventative step can help you protect your child from dental emergencies in the future. Dental sealants from Bexar Orthodontists & Pediatric Dentists are versatile and helpful because they:
- Are made of a tooth-colored coating that’s simply painted on
- Seal deep grooves from harmful bacteria
- Act as a barrier to protect tooth enamel
- Last several years under the force of normal chewing
