Keep Your Child’s Smile Healthy with Protective Sealants from Smile Arkansas

sealants dentist in north little rockDental sealants from our experienced dentist in Little Rock, AR, are a simple, painless solution to prevent cavities. Typically, we recommend sealants for young children and teens, whose inexperience with dental hygiene can make them more susceptible to tooth decay during their younger years. On occasion, we may also recommend sealants for adults with cavity-prone teeth.

How Do Dental Sealants Work?

You may have noticed that your molars – the teeth in the back of your mouth – have lots of ridges that are great for chewing. Over time, the ridges become worn and tend to get deeper and narrower. Food and bacteria may become nestled and eventually wedged in these difficult to reach spaces. They will cause decay and ultimately lead to cavities if left untreated.

A Little Prevention Goes A Long Way

Smile Arkansas recommends sealants for kids and teens to help prevent food and bacteria from getting in those narrow spaces. Dental sealants are comprised of a thin plastic coating that is “painted” onto the chewing surface of each tooth. The resin then creates a barrier by filling in the worn spaces, resulting in a smoother surface for brushing away food and bacteria. The process only takes a few minutes, and is often covered by insurance for patients under the age of 18.

This protective shield over the tooth’s enamel can last up to 10 years with proper care and cleaning. Eventually, dental sealants wear off the teeth over time. Our dentist will check your child’s sealants at each routine appointment, and replace them if necessary.
