Dental Sealants

Sealants-SmilingKids-1Dental sealants are a very good tool to use in preventing tooth decay in young children. Dental sealants are put on teeth, particularly molars having large crevices which is where bacteria can accumulate and result in cavities. The sealant fills in the crevices developing a wall to safeguard the tooth surface.

If the utilization of sealants are combined with an oral health strategy that also includes regular dental exams and cleanings, fluoride, nutritious diet and really good at-home oral hygiene, we could drastically lessen and/or stop the number of cavities experienced by children.
