Easy Prevention of Tooth Decay for Children
Most children have a hard time doing a good job when they brush
their teeth. Even adults don’t get it right all the time! No
matter how meticulous your child’s brushing may be, sometimes
their brushing can’t reach the deep grooves in the back teeth.
Bacteria, acids, and plaque can have a party back there, and
that’s the perfect recipe for decay. Decay causes permanent
damage, and the only solutions are a
filling or crown.
But we can help you keep any of this from happening, by applying
dental sealants to those back teeth.
After the teeth are cleaned and sterilized, a thin plastic clear
or white coating is applied. A curing light bonds the sealant in
place. The whole procedure takes just a few minutes. There are
no shots or drills or removal of any tooth structure, so it’s
completely painless. Applying dental sealants is one of the best
preventive things both children and adolescents can do to
preserve their natural teeth!
You’ll be amazed at how easy applying dental sealants is for
helping kids and teens protect their teeth.
