Dental sealants for you child or teen
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.
