Why Every Child Needs Dental Sealants

Looking for a fast and easy way to protect your child from cavities? Discover the decay protection of dental sealants.

The Demand for Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are applied to the deep grooves of chewing surfaces of back teeth, which can be hard to clean with just a toothbrush. These tooth sealants form a barrier against the food particles and plaque that get trapped in these grooves and develop into decay. But having your pediatric dentist in Westminster place dental sealants on your child’s teeth provides them with protection against cavities and other dental problems.

The Right Time for Tooth Sealants

According to the American Dental Association, all children should receive dental sealants as soon as their permanent teeth erupt through their gums. And adults at high-risk for cavities can get them, too. Yet despite their advanced decay protection, less than 40 percent of family dentistry specialists automatically offer dental sealants to children. That’s why parents need to make sure that their family dentistry clinic offers tooth sealants, and then request them for their child as soon as their permanent teeth emerge. If your pediatric dentist in Westminster has failed to recommended dental sealants for your child, ask for them at your child’s next dental appointment.

The Long-Lasting Dental Defense

Dental sealants are surprisingly strong and can protect teeth from decay for up to 10 years with proper dental care and regular check-ups for signs of weakness. If tooth sealants get cracked or chipped, your pediatric dentist in Westminster can quickly and easily reapply them to maintain their full protection.
