Have you noticed that your child has difficulty with their oral hygiene? Are there places that they miss while brushing and flossing? It can be difficult for a child new to dental care to grasp the right techniques to effectively clean the cracks and crevices of their teeth that can be easy to miss.
This is why many children develop cavities and why we offer a preventative treatment called “dental sealants” to offer protection to your child’s smile during their formative years.
In this simple procedure, a plastic resin is applied to your child’s back teeth. This resin helps protect the biting surface area of the molars from developing decay. This tooth-colored acrylic resin is applied to the grooves in these teeth, which effectively “seals” them, keeping them safe.
It’s easy for your child to miss the back teeth and leave behind plaque and lost food articles. Dental sealants will make sure your child has an extra defense in place when these places are overlooked when brushing and flossing.
When you bring your child in for a dental sealant treatment, Dr. David Cho will only take a few minutes to apply the sealant. The sealant is highly durable and will last for years before a reapplication is needed.
For any questions about dental sealants, or to schedule an appointment, please call Alpha Dental Spa in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, today.
