Should Your Child Get Dental Sealants?

Should Your Child Get Dental Sealants?

Aug 31, 2018

When it comes to your child’s health, you probably want them to be as healthy as possible, right? Well, their smile should be no different! At 7 Dental we are happy to offer dental sealants in Phoenix, AZ for patients interested in additional protection for their child’s smile.

Have you ever looked at your child’s teeth? You’ll probably see various depressions, pits, and grooves. These areas of your child’s teeth are actually the perfect environment for debris, bacteria and even plaque to get trapped and thrive. Due to the fact children’s teeth are less strong than our permanent teeth, it is extremely important to protect them as much as possible.

Think your child would benefit from dental sealants? Schedule an appointment with our pediatric dentist in Phoenix, AZ today.

About Our Phoenix Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a liquid, BPA-free plastic which is applied directly to the teeth. We typically recommend dental sealants following a routine checkup with the dentist. The entire process can be completed in just minutes. Your child’s dentist will paint the sealant directly onto the chewing surfaces of their teeth and allow it to dry. Once dried your child can go about their day! Dental sealants are designed to blend with teeth, making the treatment virtually unnoticeable.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

When it comes to preventive dentistry, dental sealants have quite a few benefits, which include:

  • Dental sealants can last for over a decade with proper dental care.
  • Dental sealants reduce a patient’s risk of tooth decay and cavity formation.
  • Dental sealants are designed to match your natural smile, making it unnoticeable.
