Dental Sealants for Kids

Protecting Your Child’s Smile from Decay

If you’ve ever taken a look at your teeth, you know their biting and chewing surfaces are not flat, but rather full of grooves or pits used to create surfaces that crush through food and make it easier to swallow. However, this textured surface is far more difficult to clean than a smooth top, and it’s those tiny gaps and small surfaces that are prone to tooth decay. However, you can fight back against this decay with a preventative sealant application. A sealant is a protective coating applied to your teeth that forms a barrier between decay-causing bacteria and precious, delicate tooth enamel.

Are Dental Sealants Safe for My Child?

Dr. Mimy’s Children’s Dentistry offers a wide range of sealant options for children that can help your child’s teeth remain clean, healthy, and decay-resistant for years to come. Sealants are an easy-to-apply and long-lasting tooth protection solution that is remarkably effective at encouraging strong dental health. We strongly encourage all parents to consider preventative care treatment options for their children in order to help them maintain a strong, healthy smile that’s cavity free for years to come.

How does a sealant work?

  • Your teeth are cleaned and chewing surfaces are prepped for sealant materials
  • The sealant is painted onto the chewing surface
  • A special light is used to harden the sealant in mere seconds

Advantages of Sealants for Kids

How Long Do Dental Sealants Last?

As we’ve stated previously, sealants are tremendously effective. A treatment can last for years before needing replacement, and both children and adults can benefit from them. They’re quick and easy to apply, invisible when looked at from the outside and provide a tremendous barrier against tooth decay. In conjunction with treatments like fluoride, sealants can make a lasting difference on oral health.
