Preventative Children's Dentistry

An Easy Preventive Treatment for Children

Often, even proper brushing will miss some of the hard-to-clean grooves of the back teeth. As bacteria and plaque form, the continual exposure to acid from eating will result in decay. Any amount of decay is a permanently damaged tooth that needs a restoration. 

Is there a treatment that significantly reduces the chances of this happening? Yes! Dental sealants do the trick. Here is how easy the treatment process is.

Teeth are sterilized before the application of the sealant, which is clear or white and therefore invisible. After the biting surfaces of the back teeth have been treated, a curing light bonds the sealant to the teeth. And that's it! What could be easier and quicker than that? No tooth structure is removed and no shots or drilling are necessary. 

This is a highly recommended treatment, as it has been proven to help both children and adolescents keep their natural teeth intact.
