Sealants A Soaring Smile Goes a Long Way!

Teeth Sealants for Children in Plano

Using Dental Sealants to Preserve Your Child's Teeth

Brushing and flossing your teeth is the most efficient way to get rid of loose particles and prevent decay. However, young children are often unable to reach every single spot, which leads to small particles being left behind or unbrushed areas. To help prevent your child from developing tooth decay, our Plano pediatric dentist recommends dental sealants. At Soaring Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we use dental sealants to protect all of the small areas of your child's teeth from cavities.

Benefits of Dental Sealants for Young Teeth

Dental sealants are made of plastic resin which is put onto the tooth and hardens into the tooth's surface and bonds to its many grooves. After it has been properly sealed, the grooves make a smooth surface that is more resistant to plaque. We recommend applying sealants to your child's teeth when their permanent teeth have come in, but it may be necessary at some point to seal "baby teeth" as well. You can rely on our dental team to make decisions on a case by case basis for your child.

A few other benefits of sealants include:

  • They are long lasting, usually from three to five years
  • This also makes it easier for your child to brush their teeth and keep them clean

Why Are Dental Sealants Important?

The teeth in the very back of the mouth tend to be a breeding ground for bacteria and cavities, which is why these are the most common areas for sealants. If your child's teeth are prone to cavities or you have applied sealant in the past and it is time for a new coat, simply let us know. It has been proven that dental sealants can reduce decay and cavities by up to 70%, especially in children.
