If there is a way to provide additional protection for your child’s smile during the critical years of growth, we want to do it. At Alora Pediatric Dentistry, we proudly use teeth sealing as an excellent means of preserving healthy smiles. Tooth decay often begins when food debris and plaque accumulate on hard to reach surfaces of your smile, which is typically the chewing surfaces of back molars in kids. By applying tooth sealants, we can give an extra layer of protection to these cavity-prone teeth. This is so that young smiles can retain optimal health and confidence.
Protect Your Child from Cavities with Teeth Sealants
Teeth sealing is affordable, painless and highly effective. Within minutes, one of our talented pediatric dentists can apply (or paint) the thin plastic material to the surfaces of back teeth. Next, we use a special curing light to harden the sealants for optimal strength and protection. The procedure is non-invasive and provides long-lasting protection for your child’s oral health. For several years, sealants can “seal out” harmful bacteria and sugars from attacking tooth enamel and causing areas of decay on the back molars.
While dental sealants are highly effective in preventing cavities, it is not a foolproof solution. You and your child still need to know the proper habits at home to keep teeth healthy and strong. Therefore, we are happy to educate patients on how dietary choices and oral hygiene routines can influence their smile health.
