Sealants Prevent Cavities for Kids

Dentistry for children begins at an early age. Your child’s first exam at The Sugar House Dentist should take place when the first teeth are in, usually between six months and one year of age.

During your child’s first check-up, we can discuss sealants, a clear layer of plastic applied to the grooved surfaces of the teeth.

Sealants protect the teeth and prevent cavities by filling in the crevasses where food particles can get caught and breed harmful bacteria They are especially effective in the back teeth where most cavities occur.

The application process takes only one short visit at The Sugar House Dentist. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied to teeth and hardened: it’s quick and painless. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.

If properly cared for, sealants can last for many years, protecting your child during the most cavity-prone ages.

Diligent oral hygiene and refraining from biting into hard objects are essential and will help the sealants last longer. We will inspect the sealants during routine dental visits and recommend re-application or repair if required.

Sealants, brushing and flossing, a balanced diet, and twice-yearly   visits to the Sugar House Dentist are essential for good dental health. We offer family and children’s dentistry, as treat conditions like TMD and gum recession. Schedule an appointment today.
