Preventive Care to Protect Your Child’s Teeth
You may have noticed that your child’s molars (the teeth in the back of their mouth) have lots of grooves on the chewing surface. These grooves are deep and narrow and are almost impossible to clean thoroughly. Food and bacteria get into these difficult-to-reach spaces. This will cause cavities. Did you know that four out of five cavities form in these grooves on the chewing surfaces of teeth? You CAN PREVENT these cavities by placing a Sealant on the teeth. There is NO discomfort, No drilling, No shots, and BEST of all, we GUARANTEE your child won’t get a cavity on the chewing surface of any tooth we place a sealant on for FIVE YEARS. Cool Kid Dental sealants in North Port, FL, and the Venice, Port Charlotte, and Englewood, FL, areas can help prevent tooth decay by filling in those grooves.
What Are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings that are placed over your child’s teeth to smooth the surfaces. They are made out of plastic or other dental materials and protect teeth from cavities. When the surfaces of your child’s teeth are smooth, food and bacteria don’t have the chance to get stuck in small ridges and crevices, which protects their teeth from developing decay.
Who Can Get Dental Sealants?
Both adults and children can benefit from sealants. However, the earlier the better. The first molars erupt around age six, and the second molars erupt around age twelve. Putting sealants on these molars when they erupt can prevent tooth decay before it has a chance to start. This means you’ll save time, pain, and money over time.
Our In-Office Treatments
We offer dental sealants to help prevent food and bacteria from getting in those narrow spaces. Dental sealants are composed of a resin that fills the worn spaces and creates a smoother surface for brushing away food and bacteria.
