Sealants for Children

Sealants for Children

Sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth, and an excellent preventive tool for children’s dentistry. A sealant is a simple procedure in which Comfort Care Dentist places a clear or tooth-colored acrylic “coating” onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves where decay is most likely to begin. This technique is usually done on permanent molars as soon as they have erupted enough to be sealed. Sometimes, primary molars have grooves deep enough to require sealing as well. At less than half the cost of conventional filling, without any anesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most important preventive tools Comfort Care Dental Group offers.
