An Extra Layer of Protection for Kids’ Teeth

When it comes to protecting and keeping teeth healthy, children today have a greater advantage over their parents when they were children. Modern practices, such as dental sealants, offer more protection for teeth against cavities and decay as they mature and strengthen. Sealants are among the many pediatric dental services we offer at Anthony Bain DDS in Pflugerville, TX. Ask us about this simple application during your child's next exam and cleaning, or contact us to schedule an appointment.

Dental Sealants Offer Many Benefits

One of the most significant dental problems for children of all ages is tooth decay. This decay is caused by a combination of bacteria in the mouth and sugar in food, snacks, and beverages. Dental sealants are a thin protective layer applied to the chewing surface of teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier against decay. This preventative measure is more cost-effective than dental work to repair tooth decay and cavities. It's a very simple procedure that doesn’t require drilling or teeth preparation. Children quickly realize it is an easy and painless process completed in one visit with nothing to worry about. The best part? Sealants offer long-lasting protection against cavities. With proper care, they can last for up to 10 years.

Pediatric Dental Solutions for a Healthy Smile

Our dental sealants are an excellent way to protect molars and premolars from developing cavities caused by sugary foods. Brushing regularly at home, visiting our practice twice a year for exams and cleanings, and avoiding sugary snacks and beverages are excellent ways to protect teeth. Sealants deliver that extra layer of protection on teeth most likely to see decay, and with a quick and painless process, this service is a no-brainer!

Even with sealants, proper oral hygiene and a healthy diet are essential to bright teeth and your child’s overall health. Dental sealants aren’t a substitute for any of those good habits. However, they offer added protection and peace of mind for the surface areas of teeth responsible for most chewing and are a little harder to reach with a toothbrush. Our goal is to ensure your whole family has access to the best dental care available in the Pflugerville area. Contact us today to learn more about dental sealants for your child.
