Your Detail Dental Kids dentist may recommend preventive sealants to help protect your child's teeth from cavities. Sealants are a thin protective layer applied to the pits and fissures (depressions and grooves) of the back teeth to help prevent cavities.
This tooth-colored coating is painted over caries susceptible surfaces and can prevent plaque and bacteria from creating cavities in the tooth’s enamel. This is an easy non-invasive procedure for children to prevent cavities in primary (baby) and permanent teeth.
Sometimes your Detail Dental Kids dental team may discover a filling or restoration is necessary for the treatment of decay in a tooth. Learn more about what you can expect with that treatment.
