Children's Dental Sealants

Children's Dentistry Vancouver WAPreventing Child Tooth Decay - the Easy Way!

Trying to brush the back teeth in the deepest part of our mouths is a challenge even when we're adults. No matter how carefully we proceed, we may miss some areas thanks to the deep grooves in our molars. This is especially true for children whose hand-to-eye coordination isn't fully developed. The collected bacteria and acid triggers plaque formation, which will lead to decay. And once a tooth has decay, it is damaged permanently and will need a filling or a crown.

The application of dental sealants helps counteract a child's inability to brush properly, protecting their teeth. The procedure is harmless, painless, and takes just a few minutes to complete. After the tooth (or teeth) is cleaned and sterilized, a thin, white or clear plastic coating is painted on the tooth. Then a curing light is directed over the sealant to bond it into place. This requires no shots, drills, or the removal of any tooth structure. Applying dental sealants is one of the best preventive actions both children and adolescents can have done to preserve their natural teeth!
