Can Dental Sealants Seal Out Cavities in Kids?

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Children naturally have a very high risk of cavities, but this risk can be reduced by getting them dental sealants.

The Deal on Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are proven to be an effective, strong, and safe way to protect children’s teeth from cavities. As a result, they are offered at almost every pediatric dentist in Atlanta. Dental sealants are protective coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars. They fill in all the crevices of a tooth to form a very strong barrier against bacteria and cavities. According to family dentistry experts, these tooth sealants are most effective when they get applied as soon as teeth emerge.

A Fast, Easy and Painless Procedure

Getting dental sealants is one of the easiest dental procedures a child can have at a family dentistry practice. Tooth sealants are simply painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth by a pediatric dentist in Atlanta or a dental hygienist, so there is no loud drilling, no pain, and no need for any fear. Just a few moments in a dental chair can give a child many years of outstanding cavity protection.

Dental Care to Support Dental Sealants

While tooth sealants provide a great degree of cavity protection, it’s important for a child to also practice healthy oral hygiene habits for even greater protection. Encourage your child to care for their teeth in the following ways:

  • Daily brushing and flossing after every meal, with children over age two starting to brush their own teeth with parental supervision.
  • Brushing with a small, soft-bristled toothbrush with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
  • Regular check-ups and cleanings at a family dentistry practice.
  • Eating a healthy, balanced diet to help their bodies and teeth properly develop.
  • Getting a sufficient amount of calcium through high-calcium foods like milk, cheese, and yogurt.
  • Limiting sugary, sticky, and starchy snacks since they expose teeth to excess sugar.
