Do Your Kids Need Dental Sealants?


Posted on 10/20/2015 by Raymond Liu
A young boy suffering from a cracked tooth needing a dental sealant.Dental sealants are an important preventative dentistry procedure performed by dentists. Sealants are typically placed on the back molars and other teeth that are at a high risk for developing cavities. Since kids are known to not be the greatest brushers, this can protect hard to reach teeth that may be especially prone to decay.

Why Parents Are Choosing Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are usually placed in the back of the mouth, an area that is often neglected during brushing. Since these teeth are also in constant contact with food particles and have a lot of crevices in which food can get stuck, they are prone to developing cavities. Over time, a combination of food and bacteria build up can lead to decay.

Dental sealants involve placing a coating of a resin onto the teeth. This involves filling in the potential areas in which cavities could form. After a cleaning, the tooth will be dried off and the resin will be painted on, and following this step, a special light is used in order to harden the resin.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

Applying dental sealants is an extremely easy and painless procedure, and since it can be completed in just a couple of minutes, you won't need to extend out the length of your child's dental appointment. In addition to easy application, your child will enjoy up to ten years of protection with sealants, which makes them a great option for preserving the permanent teeth and preventing against decay. Best of all, sealants are typically colorless, so no one will know that they have even been applied to your child's teeth.

It's important to remember that dental sealants are not intended to entirely prevent cavities. Even with sealants in place, poor oral hygiene and eating excess sugary foods can still result in the development of decay. While a sealant may reduce the risk, good dental hygiene is essential to completely prevent cavities and decay.
