Sealants in Manteca CA
At Aura Family Dentistry, we care as much about preventing cavities in your child’s teeth as you do, which is why we encourage you to choose sealants. While your young ones have the ability to care for their teeth, developing oral hygiene habits and hard-to-reach molars can leave your children’s teeth susceptible to cavity-causing bacteria. Speak with Dr. Damle and our team during your next visit about protecting your child’s teeth with sealants.

What Are Sealants?
Sealants are applications of plastic resin to the grooves in your child’s teeth. We typically place the sealant on teeth with narrow grooves, including molar. Small spaces, such as grooves, act as hiding spots for bacteria that lead to cavities and tooth decay. For this reason, sealants are rarely necessary on the smoother teeth in the front of your child’s mouth. Caring for these teeth is easier, and they are not as likely to trap bacteria.

What Are the Benefits of Sealants?
Your child may have developed wonderful oral hygiene habits. However, even brushing and flossing twice a day can leave behind traces of bacteria that will eventually cause cavities. Dr. Damle may suggest sealants for baby teeth, but she will most likely recommend them for permanent teeth for an early start on protecting your child’s natural teeth. Consider the benefits of dental sealants if you are uncertain whether this procedure is right for your child:

  • Dr. Damle paints the sealant directly onto the tooth, for a quick, comfortable process.
  • Sealants can last for up to 10 years, offering long-term protection against cavities
  • Sealants aid in keeping your child out of the dentist’s chair for fillings and other restorative services.
  • They may improve your child’s sense of accomplishment in regard to oral hygiene efforts for a childhood with fewer cavities
  • Protecting your children’s teeth early on preserves their structural integrity for healthy natural teeth that remain healthy into adulthood.

Is My Child a Good Candidate?
A child with developed teeth is a good candidate for sealants. Visit our office when your child first develops molars between the ages of five and seven. Or, if your child’s baby teeth have already fallen out, come in when permanent molars erupt – this typically occurs between the ages of 11 and 14. From sealants to cleanings, we look forward to meeting your children and caring for your entire family.
