Exploring the Many Benefits of Dental Sealants for Children from a Dentist in Greensboro, NC

When we talk to our kids about oral health, the bad guy is the cavity! As a parent, you do all you can to guide your children down the path of dental health. However, despite all efforts, cavities can still creep in, and fillings are required. Dentists have a secret weapon that some parents may not be aware of – dental sealants. Dental sealants provide many benefits that help prevent cavities. If you have been looking for a dentist that provides dental sealants near you in Greensboro, NC, then look no further than Dr. Sona Isharani at Triad Pediatric Dentistry.

What is a Dental Sealant?

A dental sealant is a thin clear or white resin that is applied to the chewing surface of the tooth. The sealant bonds to the tooth and, once hardened, protect your tooth. A dental sealant’s biggest benefit is its ability to block food and drink (especially the sugars contained within) from becoming trapped in the many nooks and crannies of the tooth. This, in turn, helps prevent cavities.

Why Use Dental Sealants?

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has reported that sealants prevent as high as 80 percent of all cavities for up to 2 years after placement and up to 50 percent of cavities for up to 4 years. School-age children who do not have a dental sealant have been found to have nearly three times as many cavities than those who do. The numbers do not lie. There is a reason dental sealants are so popular and have become a standard in pediatric dentistry. As of 2016, nearly 43 percent of 6- to 11-year-old children had received a dental sealant.’

Consider Dental Sealant

There really is no reason not to consider dental sealants for your children. If you are worried about the financial implications, rest easy knowing that most insurance plans cover the treatment (you will need to check with your individual provider, of course). One limitation your dental insurance provider may have is an age limit on the child receiving the sealant.

Three years ago my husband and I had our first son. When we were looking for a pediatric dentist we wanted it to be kid friendly from the moment we walked through the door and we wanted to see that the staff was patient and understanding with kids. At Dr. Sona office we found just that. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. They educate you on what is going on with your child’s teeth development. The atmosphere is kid friendly and my son loves going there.
