Like most parents, you probably want to ensure your child’s smile is as protected as possible, right? At Seven Dental we are proud to offer dental sealants in Phoenix. Dental sealants are a quick, affordable and effective way to protect your child’s teeth from bacteria, acid, plaque, and decay and can actually help prevent more costly dental treatments in the long run.
Did you know that most of our teeth have pits, grooves, and depressions, allowing bacteria, debris, and plaque to become trapped? Dental sealants are an excellent option for protecting teeth (especially molars) from decay and cavities. Molars are more susceptible to cavities due to the fact they are used most during the chewing process and often have areas which are hard to reach and properly clean.
The entire process for dental sealants is extremely quick and easy; we often do it during your child’s routine checkup. An adhesive will be applied to the teeth first; then the sealant will be painted on as a liquid. Once the dental sealant liquid has hardened, it creates a barrier over the teeth, protecting those pits, grooves, and depressions.
With proper care and routine visits to your dentist, dental sealants often last up-to 10 years. During your routine visits, we can check to make sure they are still protecting your child’s smile.
