PEDIATRIC: DENTAL SEALANTS
Homes of your local dentist, orthodontist and oral surgeon.
– Houston, TX –
Dental sealants are a thin coating placed over the biting surface of a child’s molars to protect them from the decay. A dental sealant is a thin white or clear resin liquid applied to the surface of a child’s molars with a small brush. The liquid sealant is bonded to the tooth and dries by using a blue LED light, leaving a hard layer of protection. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), that protective layer reduces your child’s risk of cavities by 80%. It’s non-invasive and doesn’t require the use of numbing agents or anesthesia because it isn’t painful. There is also no drilling required, which is also a huge perk!
