Especially prone to cavities? Want to keep your child’s teeth healthy? Talk to us about the incredible benefits of dental sealants.
A dental sealant is a clear material that’s painted onto your tooth’s surface. The goal of this treatment is to keep germs and bacteria from damaging your enamel — especially the hard-to-clean pits and grooves of your teeth.
We often recommend adding this shielding treatment to your routine dental cleaning and exam. Talk to us to learn more!
Benefits of Dental Sealants
Good to Know
Children without sealants have 3 times more cavities than those with sealants!
Keep in mind that a sealant is not a replacement for brushing. Think of this treatment as an extra layer of defense!
What To Expect From Dental Sealant Treatment
This treatment is best completed following a dental cleaning since your teeth should be clean to start.
We’ll paint a thin, protective layer of resin on the surface of your teeth — this is a painless process.
That’s it! We’ll ask you to wait an hour or so before drinking or eating anything to ensure the best results.
