Sealants can be a powerful tool in preventing cavities and keeping your smile healthy. It is a clear material painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth to block out bacteria and food debris that could lead to cavities. It forms a smooth surface over the natural grooves and makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth.
At Dentistry for Kids, we recommend sealants as soon as permanent molars come in, because children who have properly placed sealants have lower rates of cavities.
We can apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable visit to our practice. To learn more about dental sealants and how we can keep your smile in good health, we welcome you to call or visit our office today at 704-948-8494.
