The Top 3 Benefits of Sealants from Your Lake Orion Family Dentist

September 17, 2012

1.      Sealants help prevent cavities.

One of the most important benefits of sealants is cavity prevention. cover the entire exposed portion of the tooth with a thin plastic layer. By smoothing over tooth crevices, sealants prevent food particles from becoming trapped and creating tooth decay.

Compete dental health care is important during your child’s developing years. Keeping their little smiles healthy requires proactive preventive dentistry. Blocking bacteria and acid erosion in hard-to-reach places is crucial for avoiding tooth decay. Sealants are great for children who are learning to brush because these plastic layers protect teeth that are more difficult to clean. You can have peace of mind knowing that while your child may not brush all of his or her teeth properly, sealants are there as a backup.

2.      Sealants are easy to place.

Worried about your child in the dental chair? At our , Dr. Greenfield, can have your child’s sealant painted on in as little as a few minutes.

3.      Sealants can last for up to ten years.

Although placement is a snap, you can expect your child’s sealant to last for five to ten years in most cases. An investment in your child’s future, sealants protect their teeth from cavities long after your initial appointment. This saves you from costly restorative dentistry, time off of work, and trips to the dental office.
