Dental sealants are a thin coat of clear resin that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth, usually the rear molars. The back teeth are more prone to cavities because is difficult to reach them with a tooth brush and the surfaces contain pits and grooves that easily trap bacteria. It is hard for many adults to clean their back molars and almost impossible for our young Palm Beach Gardens children.
Dental sealants fill in the pits and grooves on the rear molars to create a smooth surface. Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dentists most often recommend sealants for children’s permanent back teeth, though sometimes they are used for adults, too.
Dental sealants protect teeth that have no decay (primary prevention) and also prevent further decay progression in teeth that show very early signs of disease (secondary prevention).
At Weinberg Dentistry, we take special care of our Juno Beach cosmetic and restorative dentistry clients. We want each child’s dental visits to be pleasant and painless so they will never develop a fear of the dentist. We advise parents on the specific dental issues associated with each stage of childhood. Ask us about fluoride, sedation dentistry, and Invisalign braces.
