The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry reports that Dental Sealants have been shown to reduce cavities by 86% in children! At Grand Dental Center, we highly recommend sealants for young children and growing teens.
Dental sealants are thin protective coverings that are placed over your back teeth, or molars. Situated in hard to reach, difficult to clean areas of the mouth, your back teeth are especially suspect to decay from leftover food particles. Dental sealants protect these vulnerable areas by literally “sealing out” plaque and food. The sealants are made of a resin material that is brushed into the grooves (also called “fissures”) of the patient’s molar teeth. A special light is used to bond the sealants into place, forming a sturdy and comfortable defense against the culprits that create cavities.
