Getting Sealants at the Chandler Pediatric Dentist

To prevent tooth decay, your Chandler pediatric dentist might recommend that your child have dental sealants applied. These sealants are basically a coating that goes over top of the chewing surface of your child’s teeth. That way, food items are not left on these teeth, leading to cavities. Keep in mind, however, that these sealants do not protect the area between your child’s teeth, so following a proper dental care plan remains a necessity.


Where They’re Applied

Generally, sealants are applied to your child’s molars and premolars. This is because these areas are the most difficult to clean and, therefore, the most susceptible to cavities. While you will still have to brush and floss the molars and premolars daily, sealants act as an extra line of defense and can prevent cavities in many situations.


Other Benefits

Having sealants applied is a cost effective way of managing your child’s teeth, as they cost less than fillings and can prevent further problems in the future. The procedure is also very safe and minimally invasive, so it is highly unlikely that your child will have any problems with it. When compared to what your child would have to go through when having a cavity filled, it is easy to see why your Chandler pediatric dentist would recommend going this route.


Where to Get Sealants

Of course, you’ll want to visit a pediatric dentist when having these sealants applied to your child’s teeth, since it will make the entire procedure much easier on your child. Pediatric dentists have a great deal of experience dealing with the needs of children and will ensure that the entire visit runs smoothly. In Chandler, AZ, call Kids First Pediatric Dentistry at (480) 802-2200 if you feel as though your child would benefit from having this added protection on his teeth.
