Children aren’t inherently more at-risk for tooth decay and cavities than adults are. But because they are less adept at maintaining a strict dental hygiene schedule, children often need a little more help from their dentist to keep their smiles strong and healthy. In addition to pediatric dental care and fluoride treatments, we also offer dental sealants to help protect children’s teeth from harmful plaque, tartar, and food debris. Sealants can also help adults boost their ability to protect their teeth from harmful cavity development.
Dental Sealants for Children and Adults
Sealants are thin, biodegradable layers of acrylic that are placed over the chewing surfaces of children’s molars to act as an addition barrier to bolster their teeth’s protection. With the help of dental sealants, you can better prevent food debris and oral bacteria from gathering in hard-to-clean crevices on your molars.
Because they’re biodegradable, sealants dissolve safely on their own over time, so you won’t need to schedule another visit just to remove them.
