What Are Dental Sealants

We want to make your child’s smile last a lifetime and dental sealants for kids can do an incredible job at helping keep cavities at bay. Dental sealants are a thin coating of plastic that is applied to the chewing surface of the tooth. This sealant blocks debris from getting trapped in the grooves and crevices of the teeth. Children are much more prone to cavities and this is a preventative measure that can help save your child from pain and you from costly procedures down the road.

Dental sealants cannot be seen and when combined with good oral care at home and six month dental check-ups, tooth decay has a hard time setting in.

Curious if your child is a candidate for dental sealants? Contact one of our pediatric dental offices in Bothell or Seattle Queen Anne to find out!
