Sealants Houston, TX

When children are growing up, this is the time to learn all kinds of things about life. Dental care is an important life skill. A good oral hygiene regimen is critical for oral health throughout their lifetime.

Unfortunately, during childhood, several factors make dental health tricky. The small size of the mouth, baby teeth, erupting adult teeth, and learning how to care for their mouth properly can present difficulties.

Having a small mouth and not being able to reach the back teeth well are big factors in cavity development. Even the best brushing techniques can miss the nooks and crannies of the back teeth, allowing for plaque and bacteria to build up and create decay.

Dr. Saba and Dr. Frangie can help your child avoid the possibility of cavities with dental sealants. Sealants are relatively inexpensive and easy to apply. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended dental sealants for children up to the age of 18. Most dental insurance companies will also cover the cost of sealants.

A rubbery coating is painted onto the teeth with a small brush. This painless procedure protects the teeth by sealing the cracks and crevices of the teeth, keeping out food, plaque, and bacteria. The back teeth are the most vulnerable in this time of development.
