Does My Child Need Dental Sealants?

dental sealants - Pasadena, TXDental sealants are an easy and affordable way to help prevent cavities. They are made of a tooth-colored plastic material and get applied to the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Dental sealants are most commonly used on molars and other back teeth which are harder to clean properly when brushing.

While both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants, they are especially helpful in maintaining optimal levels of oral health in children. Typically, most children aren’t very diligent with their brushing habits, which can increase the risk of cavities in problem areas such as the back of the mouth.

According to the American Dental Association, children should receive dental sealants as their adult teeth emerge. However, this often doesn’t happen. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that only 20% of children at or below the poverty level get dental sealants, while only 40% of children from high income families receive this important dental treatment.

At Love Brushing Dentistry, we’re committed to providing your children with the high quality dental care they deserve. This includes applying dental sealants as their adult teeth grow in. By including sealants as a regular part of our children’s dentistry services, we can help your kids minimize their risk of developing cavities.

I absolutely love this Dentist!! I’ve been taking my babies here for almost 5 years now and I wouldn’t take them any other place. Dr. Khavari, Alicia, Christina, and Raquel are all super sweet, always so gentle with my girls, and are really amazing at what they do. As a mother, it’s the best feeling knowing your babies are in the best of hands.
