Why are children in Greensboro, NC receiving dental sealants?

Why children in Greensboro, NC may benefit from dental sealants

Tooth decay, although preventable, remains the most widespread childhood disease in the U.S. Dr. Sona Isharani and her team at Triad Pediatric Dentistry in Greensboro, NC want the best for your child. As a parent, she understands how important it is for your child to maintain excellent oral health and is offering dental sealants as a defense against tooth decay.

Parents may not realize that tooth decay in baby teeth can lead to the same decay in their permanent teeth. Even through healthy brushing, flossing and rinsing habits, tooth decay may not be unavoidable. A dental sealant is another step that can be taken in the fight against decay. As your child’s teeth develop, especially in the back of the mouth, deep grooves (called fissures) form in the biting surface. These fissures are perfect places for food and bacteria to hide. It’s also difficult for toothbrush bristles to reach into these fissures.

Dental sealants – what are they and how can they help?

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that is applied to these chewing surface fissures which help prevent decay. The sealant bonds very quickly into these fissures, effectively forming a shield that bacteria cannot penetrate.

Sealants are simple and pain free to apply and take just a few minutes per tooth. The surface of the tooth is first cleaned before the sealant is applied into the grooves. It is a liquid that quickly dries, forming the seal. As long as the sealant remains intact, food and bacteria will not be able to penetrate and hide in the grooves of your child’s teeth.

A dental sealant, if properly cared for, is long lasting and will be there to protect your child from tooth decay through their most cavity prone years. Children who maintain healthy oral hygiene habits and who resist from chewing on hard objects will see their sealants last even longer.

Outside of their function, one thing many parents are happy to hear is how affordable dental sealants are! Some dental insurance companies may even cover some or all the cost, but you will want to check with your provider for specific details.

Help make sure your child has a long healthy road ahead of them. Call Dr. Sona Isharani at Triad Pediatric Dentistry at (336) 804-8668 today to discuss your options regarding dental sealants for your children.

Success Story

Sona J. Isharani, DDS
Rating : 5 5 Stars
Perry S.

My daughter had her first ever dentist visit today and though it took her a while to get warmed up in the office, on the way home she was very happy and even excited to go back and try and sit in the chair for her next visit.

As a new mom of two with social anxiety our experience was very calming (even with both kids crying at one point), everyone was very attentive to the situation and helped my daughter feel comfortable and get through the exam with minimal tears.

Dr. Sona Isharani and the staff have a very welcoming, understanding and calming vibe! We are happy to have found such a great fit for our family!
