Are You Wondering About Dental Sealants For Your Child?
Sealants are a quick, easy, and painless way to prevent cavities.They protect the chewing surfaces from cavities by covering them with a protective shield that blocks germs and food.
Dental sealants are thin coatings that can prevent cavities when painted on the chewing surfaces of the molar teeth. Once applied, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years.
A child’s first set of molars usually appears around age six, and the second set appears around age 12. In conjunction with regular home-care, sealing these molars as soon as they break through the surface is the best way to keep them cavity-free.
The doctors at Springville Dentistry can advise you whether you or your child are good candidates for sealants.
