Children`s Dental SealantsPediatric Dentistry
At All Dental Center in Watertown one of the many services we offer is dental sealants for children. This painless procedure can protect children’s teeth from decay. Dental sealants are designed to protect the chewing surfaces of the permanent molars by keeping food particles and germs out of the grooves on the teeth. The best time to have sealants applied is after permanent teeth have erupted, this is typically six years of age for most children. Call your dentist in Watertown with questions regarding dental sealants.
We Take an Individual Approach
Our dentistry in Watertown takes an individual approach at our dental clinic with our young patients. Our goal is to make their experience pleasant so they don’t dread or have a fear of going to the dentist office in the future. We take everything into consideration and ensure the child is in the best atmosphere with the most talented, caring dentists possible.
The process for applying dental sealants is fast and easy. After the child’s teeth are clean a special type of gel is placed on the surface of the teeth. The teeth are then washed and dried. The next step is painting the sealant on the teeth. It only takes around one minute for the sealant to turn into a protective shield for the teeth.
The End Result
The end result is a protective barrier for a child’s teeth that will last between five and ten years. The sealant is invisible and unnoticeable when a child talks or smiles. Sealants are covered by most insurance companies as part of the preventative dental care program. Call us at All Dental Center in Watertown to see if your insurance covers this service. Sealants are not a replacement for fluoride and children are encouraged to continue using fluoride in toothpaste, mouth rinse or the local water supply.
