Typically, the most common area that children suffer from decay is on their molars, which are the permanent teeth in the back. Most adults get decay in this area, as well. The reason for this is because molars have deep pits and grooves on their chewing surfaces, making it easier for food and bacteria to hide and start to form cavities. Unfortunately, no matter how well your child brushes or how well you help them, it’s nearly impossible to remove all of the bacteria from these well-hidden areas.
 
Sealants can help prevent decay
Sealants are thin white/composite shaded material that’s bonded to the chewing surface of your molars in order to seal off the deep pits and grooves where bacteria hides and creates cavities. These sealants have the ability to make your teeth smoother so you’ll be able to clean this area with your toothbrush and remove the bacteria from trying to create more cavities.
 
How are sealants applied?
The procedure is simple and fast! First, the patient’s teeth are cleaned and etched with a solution that will help the sealant adhere to the tooth enamel. The sealant is brushed on and then is hardened by a special light, properly bonding it to the tooth. This service is child-friendly since there’s no need for anesthetic or drilling.
