Dental Sealants Dentist Sarasota FL

Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!

We know that children – and even many adults! – often don’t do a complete job of brushing their teeth. When back teeth have deep grooves, even meticulous brushing may not reach them. That can allow bacteria, acids, and plaque formation to lead to decay. Once the tooth has decay, it is permanently damaged and requires a filling or crown.

What if there was a way to help prevent all this from happening? Fortunately, there is! The application of dental sealants will do the trick.

Here’s how it works:
•   The tooth (or teeth) is cleaned and sterilized.
•   A thin plastic coating is applied. This is usually white or clear in color.
•   A curing light is applied to the sealant to bond it into place.
•   The whole procedure takes just a few minutes. There are no shots or drills or removal
    of any tooth structure.
•   It’s totally painless.

Applying dental sealants is a fantastic way for both children and adolescents to preserve their natural teeth!

Whether it's time for a six-month checkup or sealants on your child's 12-year molars, we're ready to schedule your appointment!

  1. The pediatric dentist requires a degree in children's oral health and dental care. If you are one among the people, who like working with children then you can think of becoming a pediatric dentist. In this field, you would be able to come in close contact with children of different ages.
