Drs. Smith and Baer and the hygiene team at Baer and Smith Family Dentistry find that dental sealants are an excellent tool to use in the prevention of tooth decay in children. Dental sealants are applied to teeth, especially molars with large crevices where bacteria can accumulate and cause cavities. The sealant fills in the crevices forming a barrier to protect the tooth surface.
When the use of sealants are accompanied by an oral health regimen that includes regular dental exams and cleanings, fluoride, healthy diet and good at-home dental care, we can greatly reduce and/or prevent the number of cavities experienced by children.
