Does Your Child Need Dental Sealants?

Not every parent really understands the benefits that come from getting dental sealants for their child's teeth. They think that because it is an optional service, it isn't something that all children need.

Honestly, it should be something that all children get each time they go to the dentist and need a new application. It shouldn't even stop once they become adults. There are some amazing benefits that come with getting dental sealants, making them a great option for children as well as adults.

Why Get Dental Sealants

Have you ever spilled water on a protected piece of wood and watched as it just beaded up but didn't harm the wood?

That is because the wood was sealed. It didn't let the damaging water do any harm. Dental sealants act in much the same manner.

They are painted on your child's teeth, and protect your child's teeth from harm. When your child eats or drinks, the sealants keep the teeth from much of the damage that may come in the form of sugar or acid.

Plus, if your child doesn't brush as well as they should, and miss an area, the sealants protect your child's teeth from the harm that the decaying food could cause.

They need to be reapplied every 6-12 months in most cases, so your child's dentist is going to want to check them at each examination they perform. On top of cleaning and checking your child's teeth, most appointments will include an examination of your child's sealants to determine if they need another coating.

This can also become necessary because your child's teeth may have come in further or shifted some, exposing new tooth that wasn't previously sealed. Talk to your child's dentist if he or she hasn't sealed your child's teeth before, about what benefits your child could get from having this procedure done.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at 971-470-0045 today.
