Dental sealants and fluoride help prevent tooth decay!

Questions & answers

Dental sealants & fluoride

What is a dental sealant?

Dental sealants are a preventive treatment used to block decay-causing bacteria and food debris from your child’s teeth. This helps prevent cavities and keep your child’s teeth and smile healthy.

Who can receive dental sealants?

Our dentists will recommend that sealants be provided when your child’s permanent molars come in (between ages 6 and 12). Sealants last for several years once in place, offering long-term protection for your child’s teeth and smile.

How do dental sealants protect teeth?

Sealants are made from a clear or tooth-colored resin material that forms a smooth coating over the surfaces of your child’s teeth. This coating works to shield the tooth from decay-causing factors in the mouth, such as food debris, harmful bacteria and plaque. It also makes it easier for your child to keep their teeth clean with normal brushing and flossing.

What is a fluoride treatment?

Fluoride is a natural mineral that works to strengthen tooth enamel. This helps make your child’s teeth less susceptible to cavities and helps them maintain a healthy smile.

Healthier teeth with sealants & fluoride

Our caring dentists and team provide dental sealants and fluoride treatment to help prevent cavities and keep your child’s smile healthy. Sealants work to block out decay-causing factors, while fluoride treatment strengthens tooth enamel to make your child’s smile less susceptible to decay.

Both sealants and fluoride are preventive treatments. Sealants involve painting a resin material onto the surfaces of the teeth, where it forms a protective coating. Fluoride may be provided in the form of a gel, varnish or foam. Sealants and fluoride can be provided in just a few minutes during your child’s regular dental visits.

When to get dental sealants

Most children receive sealants when their permanent molars erupt, between the ages of 6 and 12. Once in place, sealants last for several years to provide long-term protection for your child’s teeth and smile. Depending on your child’s individual needs and their risk of developing cavities, they may need to have sealants applied several times as they grow.
