Family Dentistry in Galveston, TX
Bringing children to routine dental cleanings and examinations is important as their teeth grow and develop. After we perform cleanings, we can recommend supplemental treatments, including sealants.
Sealants are a great way to protect against tooth decay and cavities on your back teeth (molars). These teeth are most vulnerable to cavities and decay because they are used in chewing and are the most difficult to reach and clean.
Molars first come in at around 5-7 years of age, with a second set between the ages of 11-14. It is best to have a sealant placed when the molars first come in to ensure they are protected early.
To place a sealant, an adhesive is first applied to the teeth. The sealant is then placed over the adhesive as a liquid and painted onto the tooth. The liquid then hardens, creating a barrier between your tooth and any plaque, food particles, and bacteria. Sealants last for about ten years and can be reapplied if necessary.
