Protect Your Child's Smile with Dental Sealants!

It’s important to protect your child’s smile—after all, a healthy smile can help keep your child healthy overall. If your child is already brushing, flossing, and regularly visiting the dentist, that’s great! However, there is another weapon in the fight to maintain a healthy smile. It’s called dental sealants! Here at Dove Canyon Dental in Dove Canyon, CA, your family dentist, Dr. Scott Bianchi, offers a full range of services, including dental sealants, to save your child’s smile. Read on to learn more! 

The Important Benefits of Dental Sealants

Tooth decay occurs when the harmful bacteria on the plaque in your mouth mixes with the sugars in the food that you eat. This combination form bacterial acid, which is strong enough to eat away at tooth enamel, causing tooth decay. Brushing and flossing help, but they can’t get into the deep grooves and crevices where bacteria can hide.

Dental sealants work by sealing up these problematic deep grooves and crevices. With sealants, bacteria and food debris simply slide right off of the chewing surfaces of your teeth, protecting you from dental damage. Sealants serve as important protection because they can prevent:

  • Your child’s tooth enamel from softening
  • Your child’s teeth from decaying
  • Your child from suffering from needless tooth pain
  • Your child needing extensive, expensive tooth restoration later on

Dental sealants are recommended on the first permanent molars when your child is between the ages of 5 and 7, and on the second permanent molars when your child is between the ages of 11 and 14. The perfect time for sealants can vary based upon your child’s individual eruption patterns, and your family dentist, Dr. Bianchi, can advise you when sealants are most appropriate for your child.
