Ben Lomond Dental office provides dental sealants, which is one of the best ways to prevent cavities and help your children maintain proper oral health. Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed upon the molars within the pits, fissures, and grooves of the teeth to reduce the risk of decay.
Helping Children Maintain Healthy Teeth
For children to reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease, they need to learn how to brush their teeth correctly. When we examine and clean your child’s teeth, we will identify areas that need additional at-home treatment. Children often have a difficult time reaching the back of the mouth where the molars are located. If they are unable to brush the molars correctly, they can end up with painful cavities. Tooth decay in primary teeth can end up transferring to their adult teeth, which can lead to serious dental problems in adulthood.
Why Dental Sealants Help
When dental sealants are placed on the teeth, they will reduce the likelihood of plaque building up within the grooves and pits of the teeth. We have found dental sealants are one of the most effective methods used to prevent decay.
