Oral hygiene is often a challenge for kids, but child dental sealants prevent cavities. The dentists and assistants at Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics in Albuquerque, New Mexico perform dental sealant procedures at an affordable price. Child dental sealants will protect your child’s teeth and prevent dental procedures due to gum disease, cavities and tooth loss.
The grooves in your teeth and hard-to-reach back molars are ripe for plaque buildup and the health problems that accompany it. Teeth cleanings help, but for long-lasting protection, dental sealants are an excellent preventative measure. Dental sealants protect against plaque buildup, as well as the acids that affect your child’s oral health.
Dental sealants are comprised of a tooth-colored acrylic coating. They appear clear and will not affect your child’s smile. Child dental sealants typically last between five and ten years, depending on your child’s stage of development.
The dental sealant procedure is quick and is completed in just one visit. We’ll begin with a deep teeth cleaning. Next, we’ll apply the sealant and let it dry for a few minutes to complete the procedure. Dental sealant procedures are fast, painless and affordable!
