Protective dental sealants are actually a fundamental part of keeping your kid’s smile healthy when it comes to preventing tooth decay. Composed of a very thin plastic material, sealants are completely transparent. Streamline Dental Solutions suggests that sealants be placed on the chewing surfaces of the molars; an area that’s difficult for kids to keep completely clean. Our Henderson dentists provide gentle, pleasant pediatric dental care for the youngest of patients.
Preventing tooth decay using sealants is just about the most efficient, proactive methods to prevent dental cavities. Simply because children are so susceptible, sealants are generally recommended on their permanent molars shortly after they erupt. When taken care of, the sealants can last into adulthood.
Sealants primarily guard the biting areas of the teeth, so it’s still important to practice excellent oral hygiene. Routine preventative cleanings, fluoride applications as well as daily flossing and brushing are required. Get in touch with our family-friendly Henderson 89014 office today.
