As soon as a baby’s first tooth erupts, thus signals a consult to our pediatric dentist. Since children love to eat sweet food, their teeth are vulnerable to cavities and dental caries. Also, they are not entirely capable of thoroughly brushing their teeth on their own. Through the use of dental sealants, we’re also able to 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. In most cases, we apply these coatings to your child’s premolars and molars since these do most of the chewing. As you know, their teeth have nooks and crannies that need to be sealed so that plaque and bacteria cannot penetrate. This preventive measure secures the health of their teeth and saves them from a painful toothache.
Have your child’s teeth cleaned and protected with dental sealants. Talk to our pediatric dentists about it when you visit us at 20 Bloor St. E, Unit R4, Toronto, Ontario or call us at (647) 930-0068.
