Dental sealants for you child or teen

Our dental office is proud to offer BPA-free sealants that safely and effectively protect your child’s teeth. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces.

Small treatments now, prevent large treatments later

Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves. By applying dental sealants, you can significantly decrease the chances of your child getting cavities. Sealants can last for many years if properly cared for. Therefore, your child will be protected throughout the most cavity-prone years. If your child has good oral hygiene and avoids biting hard objects, sealants will last longer. Dr. Thiel will check the sealants during routine dental visits and recommend re-application or repair when necessary.
