Dental sealants are great dental products that can help your child keep their teeth in tip-top shape. To find out if dental sealants are right for them, it’s best to schedule an appointment at Carson City Pediatric Dentistry and Dayton Pediatric Dentistry. To help you know more about dental sealants, our dentists are happy to share the following facts with you. They are:

-Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are placed on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. They are clear, so they are tough to see. They are typically used for the back permanent teeth because they are harder to clean.

-Dental sealants keep plaque, bacteria, acid and other harmful substances from wearing down the tooth enamel and causing problems. They can even help prevent tooth decay.

-Dental sealants are usually placed on children’s teeth and they last many years. However, adults can also get sealants placed on their teeth as long as the teeth are in tip-top shape and do not have dental fillings or cavities.

-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.
