Dental sealants are a valuable and useful procedure that can protect children’s teeth because they are effective in reducing cavities.
We recommend sealants be placed on six and twelve year molars as they erupt. Placing sealants is a quick and easy procedure; we utilize our dental laser to clean and etch the natural grooves and pits on the biting surface of the teeth. A clear or white material is then bonded on the teeth to protect against cavities. Sealants can last several years depending on the individuals diet, teeth grinding and mouth chemistry.
