  1. Dental Sealants

 

You child’s permanent teeth are most vulnerable to infection and decay as soon as they erupt in the mouth. There are multiple reasons for that. But the most common is that chewing surfaces of the teeth have deeper grooves which are called pits and fissures. [Fig.1]

These pits and fissures are actually more prone to food deposition and bacterial proliferation. But yes, if these grooves can be cleaned and if proper cleanliness is maintained then the chances of getting the tooth decayed reduces. [Fig.2]

These grooves and valleys are so thin and narrow that the toothbrush bristles fail to reach the depth and it is impossible to clean, leading to decay at a later stage in life. [Fig.3]

[Fig.3]
Sealants are made from a flowable plastic-like substance which flows in these grooves and valleys and makes them less deep. This enhances the cleansing action of your ideal toothbrush and toothpaste combo.

Sealants are to be done while your child’s permanent teeth are erupting, which is mostly in the age of 6 to 12 years. [Fig.4]

Whether your child needs to get the sealants done or not, this can be decided when you visit World Smiles Dental Center every 4-5 months for your child’s regular Dental Health Checkup.

 

Furthermore, when combined with fluoride treatment and regular cleaning along with multiple regular checkups the decay can be prevented and this ensures your child has stronger teeth throughout their lives.
