Keep Cavities at Bay with Sealants
If teeth are not cared for properly, acids, bacteria, and plaque can more easily form on the surface and in areas in between teeth. This leads to decay that is permanent damage to a tooth no matter how small or large the cavity. It will need a restoration to save it. There is a preventive technique that is quick and painless, and does the trick. One application of a dental sealant in a child's or adolescent's formative years makes the difference.
The procedure is quite easy. All the teeth are cleaned and sterilized. A thin coating is applied to the surface of teeth. It is transparent and not visible. The dentist applies a curing light to bond the sealant to the teeth. That's the complete procedure that takes only minutes! There are no shots given, drills used, or tooth structure removed. It is safe and very effective. It will help to prevent the occurrence of cavities and keep your child's smile natural.
