Dental Sealants in South Bend, IN

Dental Sealants protect the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where most cavities in children are found. Made of clear or shaded plastic, dental sealants are applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity-free. Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is difficult, sometimes impossible, to clean the tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth. Food and bacteria build up in these crevices, placing your child in danger of tooth decay. Dental Sealants “seal out” food and plaque, thus reducing the risk of decay.

Dental Sealants can last for several years if properly cared for. Therefore, your child will be protected throughout most cavity-prone years. If your child has good oral hygiene and avoids biting hard objects, dental sealants will last longer. The South Bend pediatric dentist will check the sealants during dental visits and recommend re-application or repair when necessary.

How is it done? The tooth is first cleaned. It is then conditioned and dried. The tooth sealant is then flowed onto the grooves of the tooth and hardened with a special light. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.
