How a Teeth Sealant Can Make Childhood Dental Woes Disappear


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tooth decay affects almost 70 percent of American children by the time they reach 19 years of age. Without treatment, cavities resulting from decay can lead to infection and pain. Dental sealants, thin layers of plastic applied to the chewing surfaces of vulnerable teeth, can safely and effectively prevent cavities. Treatment is simple, pain-free, and affordable, and it can save both time and money by preventing the need for more costly treatments such as root canals and fillings.

Dental Sealants Are Underutilized

Despite their ability to prevent tooth decay for up to seven years, sealants are underused. Studies have shown that many children are ideal candidates for teeth sealants, and some insurance plans will cover the cost. All parents should consider sealants and other preventative treatments with their pediatric dentists. Coatings that seal teeth can even help prevent early loss of primary teeth, which can affect the way permanent teeth erupt.

How Does a Teeth Sealant Work?

Most cavities start in the narrow pits and small grooves of a child’s molars and premolars. It is difficult to clean food particles from these spaces effectively. A plastic coating can seal teeth by creating a protective barrier that doesn’t allow food, bacteria, or plaque to access the vulnerable enamel. A dentist can perform a risk assessment to determine if a child is a good candidate for a tooth sealant.

Seal Teeth Now and Avoid Fillings Later

Sealants are minimally invasive, painless, and safe. They’re also cost-effective for parents; applying a teeth sealant is less expensive than getting cavities filled. When used in conjunction with twice-daily brushing, regular flossing, healthy eating, and regular dental visits, dental sealants are 100 percent effective in preventing tooth decay. It’s important to remember that sealants don’t protect against gum disease or other dental conditions. Regular dental exams are necessary for optimal oral health.
