Dental Sealants Protect Kids’ Teeth Jefferson, GA
Pediatric Dentist Jefferson GA

As parents, you want the best for your children. You want the best for their health, their emotional well-being, and their experiences in life. You probably even make sure that your children visit the dentist at least once a year. While visiting the dentist is an important piece of taking care of your children, there is another simple thing that you can do to offer consistent protection for their smile. Dental sealants are quick and easy, providing a way to protect your children’s teeth from cavities and decay.

Most people do not think much about their teeth beyond brushing them each day. But did you know that your teeth are living features within your mouth? As you age, so do your teeth – but they are never dead (unless serious decay has resulted in a “dead tooth). As your children grow and develop, so do their teeth. Children’s mouths grow and change just as their bodies do, and their teeth need specialized care to ensure that their smiles last a lifetime. Dental sealants are a beneficial dental treatment that helps protect children’s teeth during the time of childhood and adolescence.

The back teeth, the molars, are rough-surfaced teeth that consist of many pits and grooves. These deep areas of the teeth are necessary for breaking down food particles so that they are easily swallowed, but these grooves and pits are also difficult to keep clean. Children who are learning the importance of self-care often find that keeping their teeth clean is a challenge. Dental sealants provide specific help in this area!

Dental sealants are a painted-on coating that “seal out” food particles, sugars, and other harmful substances from the back teeth. Dental sealants have helped save countless teeth across the United States, and Jefferson Dental Care wants to help protect your children’s teeth.

This simple, painless procedure takes just minutes after a cleaning appointment. Call today to ask about this preventive measure to safeguard your child’s smile.
