Some children are a little more prone to cavities than others, and that’s alright. At My Pediatric Dentist Montrose, we know that brushing alone often isn’t enough for those with oral health concerns. Our team of pediatric hygienists and dentists is proud to offer dental sealants that provide extra protection from cavities.
These sealants were designed to protect the tooth’s enamel from destructive bacteria. They are made from plastic, but they are applied with a liquid. By protecting the chewing surfaces of the tooth, the sealant can prevent food particles from slipping into hard-to-brush spots. These pits and grooves often give bacteria a place to flourish and create cavities, so we aim to seal them before they can.
In just a few minutes, your child’s teeth can be protected for years to come. Get in touch with the professionals at My Pediatric Dentist Montrose to learn more about our dental services, as well as what we can do for your kiddo. We will schedule your child’s initial cleaning and look for signs that their teeth may be susceptible to decay. If so, we’ll provide sealant services to help preserve their teeth. We look forward to seeing your child’s bright and sunny smile in our family dental clinic.
