Our pediatric professionals can apply dental sealants in only a few minutes. A tooth sealant may be the solution to avoiding costly and invasive dental work down the road.
A tooth sealant works well for chewing teeth that have not yet developed cavities, but that may be showing signs of potential cavity development.
If your child has narrow grooves in the molars where bacteria can easily accumulate, Dr. Alice may suggest dental sealants. Cavities in children can be avoided with this simple preventative measure.
A tooth sealant seals off these grooves where bacteria can potentially build. It blocks access to the grooves, and gives teeth an extra layer of protection against tooth decay.
