Dental Sealants For Kids

As your kids’ dentist serving Mundelein, we know how important it is for your child to have good oral health habits and brushing routines. Dental sealants are a fast and easy way to protect your child’s teeth and we are giving you all the information you need regarding them.

 

What Are Dental Sealants?

The sealants are a plastic resin, normally applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth and can sometimes be used to bond with and cover deep pits and grooves. Did you know that both the primary and permanent teeth can benefit from dental sealants? 

 

The Process

Your dentist applies the sealant by painting it onto your tooth enamel, where it will bond directly to the tooth. Once it’s bonded, the sealant will harden. The sealant is essentially a barrier that protects enamel from plaque and acids and can last many years before you need a reapplication. When you have a sealant in place, the tooth’s surface will be protected from decay. 

 

Prevent Tooth Decay

It’s important to brush your teeth twice a day with ADA-accepted toothpaste—preferably one that contains fluoride. Floss daily to get the extra plaque in between your teeth and gums that your toothbrush cannot reach. Avoid sugary snacks and eat a balanced diet to keep your oral health in tip-top shape.

 

If you are ready to bring your child in for a visit to get their dental sealants, contact our kids’ dentist serving Mundelein today to book an appointment. We look forward to helping you protect your pearly whites!
