At Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry, we believe prevention is an essential part of providing exceptional dental care. For this reason, we recommend all of our patients receive our BPA-free dental sealants in Houston. Although proper at home dental care can help prevent dental decay, most children’s teeth have pits, grooves and depressions where debris, bacteria and plaque can get stuck. Luckily, our dental sealants can help seal these areas, preventing decay and cavities.
A dental sealant is a thin, protective coating which is applied to the teeth. At Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry, we use BPA-free sealants, a safer, healthier alternative to traditional dental sealants. Once applied to the teeth, the tooth sealant quickly hardens and seals problem areas on the teeth at would typically harbor debris, bacteria and plaque. This seal makes brushing much easier for children and can reduce the risk of tooth decay and cavity formation.
Dental sealants are an extremely quick, comfortable and effective treatment method for reducing the risk of decay. During your child’s appointment their teeth will be thoroughly cleaned before the sealant is applied. All together, applying the sealant only takes a matter of minutes and will dry very quickly, providing almost instant protection.
