Children’s Cavities Are Not “Just A Part Of Growing Up”

Wilson Cosmetic Dentistry

In this blog post from Wilson Dental Group, we focus on a preventative treatment used to help impede the development of cavities in children.

Dental sealants are a thin coat of clear resin that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth, usually the molars. Molars are more prone to cavities because is difficult to reach them with a tooth brush, and the surfaces contain pits and grooves that easily trap bacteria. It is hard for many adults to clean their back molars and almost impossible for our young Lucama children.

Dental sealants fill in the pits and grooves on the molars to create a smooth surface. We most often recommend sealants for children’s permanent back teeth, though sometimes they are used for adults, too.

At Wilson Dental Group, we offer a full range of children’s dentistry, including dental sealants. Other services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
