Since children love to eat sweet food, their teeth are vulnerable to cavities and dental caries. They are also not entirely capable of thoroughly brushing their teeth on their own. Through the use of dental sealants, we can help protect your child’s developing teeth.
Dental sealants are plastic coatings applied on each of the tooth’s chewing surfaces to prevent them from harmful bacteria and painful toothaches. In most cases, we apply them to premolars and molars since these are harder to reach when cleaning. Molars also have nooks and crannies that require sealing so plaque and bacteria cannot penetrate.
