How can dental sealants benefit my child?
Teeth have natural grooves on their chewing surfaces. If these grooves are deep, they can trap plaque and bacteria, and a cavity can form. Sealants are special resin material that is placed into the deep grooves to “seal” them up and prevent plaque and bacteria from getting trapped, thus preventing cavities. There is a lot of research behind the effectiveness of sealants as a preventative measure against cavities. Please contact our Kirkland dental office for more information.
