Can Dental Sealants Keep Kids Cavity-Free?

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Cavities are a dental danger that strikes children every day. Today, kids can get the cavity protection they need with a treatment called dental sealants.

The Deal on Dental Sealants

Want to protect your child from cavities? Get them dental sealants. These are simply special tooth sealants that provide proven protection against dental decay and bacteria. As a result, they are offered at almost every pediatric dentist in Annapolis. Dental sealants are protective coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars. They fill in all the crevices of a tooth to form a strong barrier against cavities. According to family dentistry experts, these tooth sealants are most effective when they get applied as soon as teeth emerge.

A Fast, Easy, and Painless Procedure

Lucky for you and your child, dental sealants are one of the easiest and most comfortable procedures children can get at a family dentistry clinic. Tooth sealants are simply painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth by a pediatric dentist in Annapolis or a dental hygienist, so there is no loud drilling, no pain, and no need for any fear. Just a few moments in a dental chair can give a child many years of unmatched cavity protection.

Dental Care to Support Dental Sealants

While tooth sealants provide a great degree of cavity protection, it’s also important for a child to practice the following healthy oral hygiene habits to keep them cavity-free for a lifetime:

  • Regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and treatments at a family dentistry practice.
  • Daily brushing and flossing after every meal, with kids over age two starting to brush their own teeth under the guidance of a parent.
  • Brushing with a small, soft-bristled toothbrush with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
  • Eating a healthy, balanced diet to help their bodies and teeth properly develop.
  • Getting a sufficient amount of calcium from high-calcium foods like milk, cheese, and yogurt.
  • Curbing snacks high in sugar and starch that encourage the development of decay.
