For children who are prone to cavities and do not get the proper treatment, the effects on their oral health can be lasting. So, we recommend you bring them in for a dental sealant in Katy, Texas. This allows our dentists and team to repair the damage done by dental decay and, more importantly, help prevent further damage. Dental sealants work to keep teeth healthy and prevent the growth of bacterial deposits, such as plaque, calculus and tartar.
A dental sealant is made from clear or tooth-colored resin material. During a sealant treatment, we will apply this resin to the grooves and fissures of your child’s teeth. These areas can be hard to clean properly, even with daily brushing and flossing. So, without a dental sealant applied, cavities are more likely to develop. The surface enamel of the tooth is made smoother with sealants, creating less places for bacteria to grow.
Dental sealants are most often recommended for children between the ages of 6 and 12, but adults can benefit from this treatment, too. You can learn more about dental sealants by calling our office at 281-310-1417.
