Pasadena Texas Kids Dentist
Dental Sealants are a quick and inexpensive way to help prevent decay. The back teeth have grooves. These groves drop down into microscopic cracks. A tooth brush bristle can not get all the way to the bottom of the crack. Thus, this is an area for bacteria to hide and cause cavities. A dental sealant covers up these grooves and eliminates hiding spots for the bacteria.
Dental sealants do not damage the teeth. They are a simple flowable white filling material that is placed on top of the grooves and “seals” the grooves. The vast majority of decay starts on the chewing surface of teeth. If you can eliminate this decay area on your child’s teeth it will help tremendously in preventing decay.
