Dental Sealants are applied to children’s teeth in order to prevent childhood tooth decay. Sealants are applied to children’s back molars as a protective barrier against harmful bacteria and acids in the mouth that damage teeth. Unfortunately regular brushing can’t always prevent tooth decay in the hard-to-reach areas of the mouth, which is why it’s important to see your child’s Pediatric Dentist from a young age to receive this treatment. Sealants can be applied to both baby molars and adult molars. This treatment is a quick, painless procedure that will strengthen your child’s teeth and help prevent tooth decay.
