Children At SchoolStarting your child on the right dental path may seem overwhelming at first.

Added Insurance for Young Dental Health

Instilling good oral hygiene practices in your child is very important. It’s understandable that family life is often so busy. You may put your child’s dental health on the backburner when they are little because the struggle of getting them to brush is more than you have the energy for. It’s very important that you stick with it and make sure your child learns to brush and floss as early as possible. However, dental sealants are a great back up if you’re worried about not being able to make the two minute mark every time you brush your kiddo’s pearly whites.

What are Dental Sealants?

A dental sealant is a thin plastic barrier. We paint the liquefied material onto the chewing surfaces of molars as a preventive measure. All back teeth have deep grooves and crevices. This is a highly common place for bacteria and food debris to hide out, mix together, and create cavities. Dental sealants block those nooks and crannies, making it much less likely that tooth decay will set in. Fluoride treatments are completely different, but also considered an important part of the dental health of children. While sealants provide a barrier, fluoride makes your teeth stronger and more slippery, so bacteria have a harder time damaging them.
