Curious about whether sealants are a good choice for your children when it comes to preventing cavities? The team at ProActive Dental can help you decide.
At ProActive Dental Studio, we apply dental sealants to help prevent cavities on children's permanent molars. Dental sealants are typically clear or tooth coloured, so that they 'seal' the surface of the tooth without being visible.
How are dental sealants applied?
The dental sealant is essentially 'painted' onto the chewing surface of the permanent molars by our team. The sealant is bonded into place, sealing all the grooves that are potential problem areas for decay.
How long does dental sealant last?
Dental sealants can last for many years if properly taken care of. If the sealant wears off, however, it can be re-applied.
Does my child need dental sealant?
During your child's regular check-up, we'll assess your child's dental health and advise you about whether dental sealant is a good idea for your child.
Will my child need fluoride if she has dental sealants?
Yes. Dental sealants provide excellent protection from cavities for the teeth on which they are applied. The other teeth that are not protected by the sealant still require fluoride for optimal protection from cavities.
