An Easy and Effective Way for Teens and Kids to Prevent Tooth Decay
Even when brushing is thorough and daily dental care is well supervised, the deep grooves of back teeth are sometimes extremely difficult to keep clean. Small accumulations of bacteria grow and lead to decay. Whether the cavity is large or small, it will need a restoration.
Is there any preventive treatment that can reduce the chances of this happening? Yes, there is! One application of a dental sealant will greatly reduce the development of cavities. The treatment is amazingly easy.
After the surfaces of the teeth are cleaned and sterilized, a thin coat of the sealant is applied to teeth. It is clear in color and not visible. The doctor uses a curing light to bond the sealant to the enamel. And in just a few minutes, the whole procedure is done without any shots, drilling, or removal of tooth structure. It is safe and one of the best prevention treatments for teens and children to help them keep their natural teeth throughout their lives.
