Chew Over the Benefits of Dental Sealants

Do you want to protect your child from tooth decay? Talk to your pediatric dentist in Pembroke Pines and find out more about dental sealants. You’ll see why this dental care treatment is so powerful and practical.

The Defense of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are an excellent way to protect children’s teeth from tooth decay. Sealants are thin, plastic coatings applied to the crevices of the molars to prevent cavities from forming. This area tends to trap food and plaque that can develop into decay. This makes the molars susceptible to cavities early on. That’s why family dentistry specialists say that dental sealants are an important treatment to get for both your child’s baby teeth and permanent teeth. Don’t worry, sealants don’t affect the look or feel of the teeth, but simply provide protection from plaque build-up and cavities before they have a chance to develop.

The Age for Treatment

Since sealants are such effective preventative measures, family dentistry experts recommend that children get dental sealants as soon as their molars emerge to avoid any risk of decay. Your child’s first set of permanent molars should come in between the ages of five and seven, while their second set of permanent molars should appear between the ages of 11 and 14. Your pediatric dentist in Pembroke Pines will advise you on both whether and when sealants could benefit your child. While dental sealants are most frequently prescribed for young children, some teens and adults without signs of tooth decay may also get sealants for dental protection.

The Procedure for Protection

You may be surprised that getting dental sealants is quick, comfortable, and painless. And sealants do not affect the surrounding tooth structure. They just protect teeth from decay. To place the sealants, your pediatric dentist in Pembroke Pines applies a mild solution to the teeth to ensure that the sealants bond properly. Then, this solution is rinsed away and a special sealant material is brushed onto the teeth and hardened with a powerful light. At this point, the sealant is set and can last for up to ten years. But sealants can crack or come off with time, so they need to be continually checked to make sure they’re still intact. Be assured that your dentist will evaluate your sealants during your regular dental check-ups and can replace them as needed to prolong their protection.
