At Stonebrook Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in the power of prevention regarding your child’s dental health. That’s why we offer dental sealants, a remarkable protective measure that protects against the ever-present threat of cavities. Imagine a forcefield for your child’s teeth, a thin and invisible barrier blocking the harmful bacteria and food particles that can lead to tooth decay. Dental sealants provide just that. With their effectiveness, durability, and non-invasive nature, dental sealants have become an invaluable tool in our mission to keep your child’s smile cavity-free and radiantly healthy.

What are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). Made of a safe and BPA-free plastic material, sealants act as a barrier, sealing off the deep grooves and pits on the tooth surface. This sealant prevents food particles, plaque, and bacteria from accumulating in these hard-to-reach areas, reducing the risk of cavities.

The Benefits of

Dental Sealants

  1. Effective cavity prevention: The chewing surfaces of molars and premolars have natural grooves and pits that can trap food debris and bacteria, making them vulnerable to cavities. Dental sealants provide an extra layer of protection, shielding these susceptible areas from decay-causing elements.
  2. Long-lasting protection: Dental sealants are highly durable and can last several years with proper care. By maintaining regular check-ups, our dental team can monitor the condition of the sealants and ensure their ongoing effectiveness.
  3. Non-invasive and painless: Applying dental sealants is quick and painless, requiring no shots or drilling. The teeth are thoroughly cleaned, and the sealant material is simply painted onto the tooth surface and hardened with a special light. It is a comfortable and stress-free experience for children.
  4. Cost-effective prevention: Dental sealants are a cost-effective preventive measure that can save you money in the long run. By reducing the risk of cavities, sealants help minimize the need for more extensive and costly dental treatments such as fillings, root canals, or extractions.
  5. Enhanced oral hygiene: Dental sealants create a smooth, easy-to-clean surface on the teeth, making it easier for your child to maintain good oral hygiene habits. Brushing and flossing become more effective as food particles and plaque have fewer hiding places.

Our Approach to Dental Sealants

At Stonebrook Pediatric Dentistry, we prioritize the comfort and well-being of our young patients. Dr. Abhishek Bhaumik and our friendly dental team take a gentle and compassionate approach to dental sealant application.

During the procedure, we ensure your child feels at ease and informed about each step. First, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and dried. Next, the sealant material is carefully applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth and hardened using a special curing light. The process is quick and painless, allowing your child to return to their daily activities without disruption.

Dental Sealants:

Dental sealants require minimal maintenance. Encouraging your child to maintain good oral hygiene practices, including brushing their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing regularly, is important. Routine dental check-ups will also allow our team to monitor the condition of the sealants and provide any necessary touch-ups or replacements.
