We offer the best in dental services at our Leonia dentist office, including porcelain veneers, dental bonding, teeth whitening procedures, dental implants, dental sealants, crowns, bridges and extractions. Dental sealants are important for children to maintain healthy teeth and to ward off cavity. Sealants consist of a thin plastic coating that is adhered to the back teeth to protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay. The small pits and grooves in children’s teeth keeps the surfaces rough and uneven, causing food to get stuck in them. The longer the food and debris stays in between the teeth and gums, the more tooth decay can form and cause cavities.
Sealants help to keep the grooves filled in and the food out of the teeth. Our Leonia dentist office recommends that children have sealants put on their teeth as soon as their permanent molars are grown in. This prevents decay from getting to the teeth as soon as possible. A good oral health regimen including brushing and flossing along with sealants and regular dental checkups can keep your child’s teeth healthy and clean for many years to come.
