Dental sealants are an excellent option to prevent cavities and enamel erosion in your child’s premolars and molars. If you are looking to invest in your child’s dental health, we invite you to consider dental sealants. And if you are concerned about the longevity of dental sealants, we can learn more here about their long-lasting benefits.

The process of placing dental sealants is designed to ensure high-quality results. We clean your child’s teeth, apply the liquid sealant, clear away any surplus, re-clean the teeth, and use a special light to harden the sealants to their teeth. This process helps to bond the dental sealant to the chewing surfaces of the teeth so that their dental sealants can remain in place for many years.

The bacteria that affect the teeth mainly wear on the dental sealants protecting the molars instead of the molars themselves, and will slowly wear down the sealant material. The sealants may need to be reapplied after a few to ten years. At each dental checkup, our team will inspect the condition of your child’s dental sealants to determine if a sealant needs to be replaced.
