When it comes to cavities, prevention is the best form of treatment. Dental sealants can help protect your child’s teeth from cavities. For sealants in Roseville, visit our friendly Dr. Kaur.
At Roseville Dental Center, we believe the best fillings is no filling. That is why we offer high-quality dental sealants to our youngest patients. Depending on your dental history, you may benefit from sealants, too!
The chewing surfaces of your back teeth have deep grooves that make them vulnerable to decay. These grooves are too deep and narrow to clean with regular brushing, which allows bacteria to collect on the surfaces of your teeth. To seal these grooves and keep out the bacteria, our dentist recommends dental sealants.
Dental sealants are a thin clear or white plastic coating. Children usually receive them on their baby teeth, but our dentist may recommend sealants once their permanent teeth erupt. Be sure to speak to Dr. Kaur about your child’s cavity risk.
To receive a sealant, we will thoroughly clean and prepare your tooth. Our dentist will paint the coating on the surface of your tooth and cure it with a special light, ensuring a strong bond. Once the sealant hardens, you will be able to eat and brush normally.
Dental sealants can protect your teeth from cavities for up to 10 years. If your child receives sealants on their baby teeth, the sealants will need to be applied to their permanent teeth to keep your child cavity-free.
Your sealants chip and wear down over time, so you will need to have them reapplied as necessary. Be sure to schedule regular checkups with our office twice a year to make sure your sealants are in good shape.
