Dental sealants are a clear protective coating we typically place on permanent teeth. Because these teeth initially erupt at the back of the mouth, they are especially difficult to brush and maintain. Research has shown that dental sealants help to reduce the incidence of cavities by as much as 80%.
The American Dental Association recommends that once a child’s first permanent tooth has erupted, they should receive a dental sealant.
At our office, we utilize the most up-to-date sealant technology and use the best system for your child’s teeth. Before applying dental sealants, our pediatric dentists will first examine the teeth for any signs of decay. Once examined, the teeth are prepared using a cleaning/etching solution. The mouth is then thoroughly rinsed, and the teeth are dried, after which our dentists coat the teeth with a sealant, hardening it using a curing light.
