Effective Dental Sealants for Long-lasting Tooth Protection

At Bayou Children's Dental Center, we understand the importance of preventive dental care. Dental sealants are a powerful tool in our arsenal, providing an added layer of protection against cavities and decay, especially in hard-to-clean back teeth.

What Are Dental Sealants and How Do They Work?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, or molars. These sealants act as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids. They are especially beneficial for children, who may not always be thorough with brushing.

Benefits of Dental Sealants for Children

The benefits of applying dental sealants to children’s teeth include:

  • Significant reduction in the risk of tooth decay.
  • Long-lasting protection, with sealants that can last for several years.
  • A painless and non-invasive procedure.
  • Providing a smooth surface that's easier to clean.
