Your child deserves a top-notch smile and oral health. Unfortunately, there are many things in the world today that can threaten your child’s smile and cause cavities and other dental issues. The good news is that your dentist, Dr. Sunil Ilapogu, can protect your child’s teeth from these things and keep their smile and oral health in top-notch condition. That’s by applying dental sealants to the chompers.
Typically, it’s recommended to apply the sealants right after the permanent teeth grow into place. This will help the teeth stay healthy and strong. However, this isn’t the only time sealants can be applied. They can even be applied on adults’ teeth, as long as the teeth don’t have any dental issues or dental fillings. Your dentist will help you decide which is the best time to protect the teeth.
The treatment is simple, easy, and painless. In fact, your dentist won’t even need to use anesthetic. It can be done quickly after a routine dental cleaning. The sealant will protect the teeth for many years with little to no care. It can even handle the pressures from everyday chewing! If a reapplication is needed down the road, your dentist can reapply it to the teeth after a checkup.
