Dental Sealants in Denver, CO
Northfield Pediatric Dentistry, where the dedicated team is committed to safeguarding the precious smiles of children in Denver, CO. As a trusted pediatric dentist, Dr. Roz understands the unique dental needs of young patients. One of the essential services we provide is dental sealants – a simple yet effective way to protect your child’s teeth from cavities and ensure their long-term oral health.
What Are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth (molars and premolars). These surfaces often have deep grooves and crevices where food particles and bacteria can easily get trapped, making them more susceptible to cavities. The sealant material bonds to the tooth’s surface, creating a barrier that prevents food and plaque from settling in these grooves.
Benefits of Dental Sealants
Choosing dental sealants for your child offers a range of benefits. By creating a shield over the vulnerable areas of their teeth, sealants provide:
- Cavity Prevention: Sealants are a barrier against decay-causing agents, reducing the risk of cavities in hard-to-reach areas.
- Long-lasting Protection: With proper care and regular check-ups, dental sealants can last for several years, providing ongoing protection during your child’s crucial development years.
- Painless and Non-Invasive: Applying dental sealants is a quick, painless procedure that requires no drilling or anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable experience for your child.
Process of Applying Cavity Sealants
Our process for applying dental sealants is designed to be gentle and efficient:
- Cleaning: The teeth are cleaned and dried to ensure optimal bonding.
- Application: A thin layer of the sealant material will be painted onto the chewing surfaces of the molars and bonded with a special material.
- Curing: Using a curing light, the sealant material will be hardened to create a strong, protective layer.
- Type of Sealants Used: Our sealants are BPA and Bis-GMA-free!
