Can Dental Sealants Help My Child’s Oral Health and Smile?

Posted .

As you may already know, children’s oral hygiene isn’t always the greatest, especially because children are impatient and don’t like having things poking and prodding in their mouth. This is normal, but it’s dangerous, especially because it can promote dental issues. The good news is that your dentist, Dr. Diana Craft, can help your child’s oral health and smile by protecting the teeth with dental sealants.

Dental sealants are wafer-thin shells that are painted and hardened onto the teeth. They create a barrier over the enamel and keep bacteria, tooth decay, and enamel erosion at bay. The treatment to place the sealants is simple and painless. It can be done after a routine dental cleaning to make sure the teeth are in tip-top shape. Fortunately, the sealants will last for several years, even with little to no care and while handling constant chewing pressure. If the sealants need to be applied later down the road, our dentist will do so after a checkup.
