Dental sealants are a simple yet effective preventive dental treatment. Our knowledgeable pediatric dentist, Dr. Rhonda Kavee, typically recommends dental sealants in New York, New York for your child’s permanent molars as soon as they erupt. This usually occurs between the ages of six and twelve years. Sealants are often recommended for the molars because these back teeth have deep pits and grooves on their surfaces, which are the perfect spot for bacteria and food debris to hide and develop into tooth decay. A dental sealant works to prevent decay by creating a protective barrier on the tooth surface, blocking out the food particles and bacteria. The sealant also forms a smooth surface on the tooth that is easier to keep clean, especially for children who are learning to care for their smiles. The process for applying dental sealants generally requires just one short, comfortable appointment at ABC Dentistry RMR. Dr. Rhonda Kavee will simply paint the sealant, which is made of a tooth-colored resin material, onto the surface of the tooth and allow it to dry. Dental sealants are a great way to protect your child’s teeth from tooth decay and cavities. For more information on the benefits of sealants, we invite you to contact us today. We are committed to keeping your child’s smile healthy!
