Are sealants right for your children when it comes to preventing cavities? Get advice from the team at Hall Dental.
Dental sealants are used to prevent cavities on children's permanent molars by coating the teeth with clear or tooth coloured material to 'seal' the surface.
During a regular office visit, our experienced dental team will 'paint' the sealant onto the chewing surface of the permanent molars. The sealant is bonded into place to seal all the grooves that may be potential problem areas for decay. No anaesthesia is required as the procedure is completely painless.
Dental sealants will usually last on the teeth for a number of years if proper care is taken. If the sealant does wear off, it can be re-applied.
During your child's regular check-up, our friendly team will assess your child's dental health and advise whether dental sealant is recommended to prevent decay on her permanent molars.
Children who have dental sealants on their permanent molars, still need fluoride. Dental sealants provide excellent protection from cavities for the teeth on which they are placed. However, the other teeth that are not protected by dental sealants require fluoride for optimal protection from cavities.
