Pediatric Dental Sealants at Pediatric Smiles and Braces of Orem

At Pediatric Smiles of Orem and Pediatric Smiles of Orem, we strongly recommend the placement of sealants on adult (permanent) teeth.  A sealant is a safe and easy way to place a protective covering that fills in the deep grooves of our back molars. They can release fluoride onto the tooth’s enamel to help strengthen your child’s teeth and prevent cavities. Most children’s permanent molars erupt around age six (6). This is the ideal time to place them on these adult (permanent) teeth as they are not yet fully mineralized and are at high risk for developing cavities. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry supports the routine placement of sealants.

The Benefits of Pediatric Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. Here are the key advantages of choosing pediatric dental sealants for your child:

  1. Decay Prevention: Sealants act as a barrier, preventing food particles and bacteria from accumulating in the deep grooves and crevices of the teeth, reducing the risk of cavities.
  2. Cost-Effective: Dental sealants are a cost-effective preventive measure that can save you money in the long run by avoiding more extensive dental treatments.
  3. Pain-Free and Non-Invasive: Applying dental sealants is a painless and non-invasive procedure that does not require any drilling or anesthesia.
  4. Long-Lasting Protection: With proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, dental sealants can provide protection for many years, helping to maintain your child’s oral health.
