Discover How Dental Sealants can Protect Children from Cavities

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Don’t let cavities spoil your child’s smile. Treat them to the proven protection of dental sealants.

The Cavity Protection of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are simply very thin layers of resin that are brushed onto a child’s teeth to keep decay away. These tooth sealants are mostly placed on a child’s permanent molars, but a pediatric dentist in College Park may also want to apply them on other baby or permanent teeth that are susceptible to cavities. Dental sealants cover the deep crevices and narrow crannies in teeth, which is where bacteria and plaque get caught and are hard to reach with a toothbrush. If those particles are not removed from teeth, they can develop into cavities. But covering these areas with tooth sealants can keep decay from forming.

The Appropriate Time for Tooth Sealants

Family dentistry experts agree that children should get dental sealants as soon as their permanent molars emerge, which is typically around age six or seven. They may also need tooth sealants on their second molars, which come in around age 12. Your pediatric dentist in College Park will probably let you know when your child is ready for dental sealants, but you may want to ask at your child’s next appointment.

The Fast and Easy Application Process

Dental sealants take very little time or effort to apply, with only a few minutes needed to complete the entire process. The following steps are all that’s involved:

  1. A family dentistry specialist cleans and dries the teeth being treated.
  2. A special etching material is brushed onto the teeth and allowed to set for one minute before it is rinsed away.
  3. The teeth are dried and the dental sealant is simply brushed over the teeth.
  4. The dental sealants are set with a strong, special light that activates and hardens the sealant.
  5. One minute later, the sealant has set and the entire procedure is finished, leaving the child protected from cavities.
