Your child deserves a strong and healthy smile that is free of cavities and other dental issues. Unfortunately, there are many things that can attack the teeth and threaten their oral health. The good news is that dental sealants can help them have a safer and healthier smile. To find out if your child can benefit from dental sealants, it’s best to schedule an appointment. To tell you more about dental sealants, our dentist, Dr. Sukyoung Ahn, is happy to share some dental sealant facts, which are:
-Dental sealants are clear, plastic coatings that are placed on the chewing surfaces of the permanent teeth. They are typically used for the back teeth because they are tougher to clean.
-Dental sealants protect the teeth from bacteria, acid and other harmful substances to keep them in tip-top shape. They can even help prevent cavities.
-Dental sealants are usually placed on children’s teeth and they last many years.
-Dental sealants can be placed in one short appointment at our office. In fact, dental sealants can be placed during your child’s routine dental exam and cleaning appointment.
