Because children are still growing and have not mastered a dental routine yet, they are especially vulnerable to cavities. Made of a thin plastic coating, dental sealants act as literal shields against decay-causing bacteria so that your child’s smile stays healthy.
Why is a sealant the solution for me?
Prevent cavities: By acting as a physical barrier, a dental sealant can protect teeth from bacteria and decay. They are most often applied to the molars, which are especially vulnerable.
Lower the cost of dental care: The fewer cavities your child gets, the less you have to pay for restorative treatments like fillings and crowns.
Establish Long-term Dental Health: Children do not always brush and floss their teeth properly, which makes it easier for cavities to develop. A little extra protection can lay the foundations for good oral health in the future.
