Why Dental Sealants are a Smart Choice for Children

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Want to protect your child from cavities? Then make sure they get the cavity protection of dental sealants.

The Details on Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are plastic coatings placed over teeth that create a protective barrier to keep tooth decay away. These tooth sealants literally seal out the plaque and particles that get trapped in teeth and cause cavities. Dental sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth toward the back of the mouth, which tend to have deep grooves and crevices that can be difficult to clean. Yet depending on your child’s needs, your pediatric dentist in Orlando may also apply them on other teeth that are susceptible to cavities.

The Right Time for Tooth Sealants

Did you know that most cavities in children could have been prevented if the child had the protection of dental sealants? And the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) has found that tooth sealants provide an 86 percent reduction in cavities after one year. This proven protection has made them a popular treatment in most family dentistry clinics. The general guideline for placement is that dental sealants should be applied to a child’s permanent teeth as soon as they erupt through the gums, which is typically between the ages of 6 and 13.

The Procedure for Protection

The procedure for applying dental sealants is extremely fast and completely painless. Your pediatric dentist in Orlando simply cleans and prepares the teeth being sealed, and then brushes the liquid sealant onto the teeth. After 60 seconds, the tooth sealants are set and your child is protected. Dental sealants are very strong and can last for up to 10 years with proper care and regular dental check-ups at your family dentistry clinic.
