Posted by Modesto Kidz Dental on Sep 11 2019, 03:53 AM

Looking for some treatment that will add a layer to safeguard your child’s teeth and reduce the risk of developing tooth decay? Dental Sealants is an easy and painless way to help your child’s teeth and extremely useful in eliminating cavities.

What is Sealant?

Dental sealant is a thin plastic coating designed to protect the molars and bicuspids. It is a protective barrier applied to the teeth. They help in preventing bacteria, food particles, and harmful acids from causing tooth decay. Sealants are not mean to replace flossing and regular brushing. They provide a protective layer for your child’s molars. With time, dental sealants wear away and must be replaced by new sealants.

Reasons why do your kids need dental sealants

  • School-aged children without sealants are likely to get cavities 3 times more than those with sealants.
  • Sealants are a quick, cost-effective, and painless way to prevent cavities.
  • Sealants prevent 80% of cavities in the back teeth where most of the cavities occur.

Benefits of dental sealants

The benefits of dental sealants are numerous. Some of the main advantages are mentioned below:

Easy to apply

Very easy to apply and take a few minutes to dry.

Dental sealants are safe

Most of the children have no adverse reaction to having sealants.

Optimal for young children

Dental sealants can be applied when your child’s permanent molars go off. Most of the young children are not interested in brushing and flossing very well. Sealants add a protective layer against tooth decay in molars that your kid might not be brushing effectively.

Virtually invisible

They are clear and virtually invisible when eating, talking, or smiling.

Dental sealants can last for several years

In many cases, sealants can be used for several years. Your kid’s dentist will check the sealants at the appointment and will let you know the correct time to replace them.
