At Kids First Dental, we believe that offering preventive dentistry is an essential part of providing our patients with the best professional dental care possible. For this reason, we recommend dental sealants for most of our patients. Although many patients practice proper dental care at home, the pits, grooves, and depressions on the chewing surfaces of teeth actually provide the perfect environment for debris, bacteria and even plaque to get trapped in and thrive. Dental sealants create a barrier between your teeth to protect it from the harmful effects of plaque, acid, and bacteria.
Dental sealants are made using a BPA-free, liquid plastic material that is typically tooth-colored or clear. During this procedure, your dentist will paint the sealant directly onto the chewing surfaces of teeth, allowing the sealant to try and form a barrier. Once the barrier has been formed, patients are protected from plaque, bacteria, and acid, it also makes it easier for teeth to be properly cleaned, stopping debris from becoming trapped in the grooves, pits, and depressions on teeth.
When it comes to preventing dental complications and protecting smiles, our dental sealants have many benefits over the alternatives:
