Sundance Dental & Orthodontics Sealants Prevent Cavities For Farmington Kids

Sundance Dental & Orthodontics Sealants Prevent Cavities For Farmington Kids Your child’s first dental exam at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics should occur when the first teeth are in, usually between six months and one year of age. During your child’s first check-up at our Farmington office, we can discuss sealants, a clear layer of plastic applied to the grooved surfaces of the teeth.

Sealants protect the teeth and prevent cavities by filling in the crevasses where food particles can get caught and breed harmful bacteria They are especially effective in the back teeth where most cavities occur.

The application process takes only one short visit at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied to teeth and hardened: it’s quick and painless. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.

Sealants are covered by most dental insurance plans. For parents who pay out-of-pocket, sealants are still cost-effective considering the cavities and future visits that can be avoided. Some dental insurance plans have age limitations for sealants. Check your policy if you are unsure of the qualifications. Sundance Dental & Orthodontics frequently recommends having sealants applied as early as possible.

If properly cared for, Sundance Dental & Orthodontics sealants can last for many years, protecting your child during the most cavity-prone ages.

Diligent oral hygiene and refraining from biting into hard objects are essential and will help the sealants last longer. Michael Tornow will inspect the sealants during routine dental visits and recommend re-application or repair if needed.

Sealants, brushing and flossing, a balanced diet, and twice-yearly Sundance Dental & Orthodontics dental visits are important for pediatric dental health. For more details about sealants, contact Sundance Dental & Orthodontics today.
