Dental Sealants in Clark County, Nevada
Protective dental sealants are an important part of keeping your child’s smile healthy when it comes to preventing tooth decay. Made of a thin plastic material, sealants are completely clear. Streamline Dental Solutions recommends that sealants be placed on the chewing surfaces of the molars; an area that is difficult for children to keep completely clean. Our Blacksburg dentists provide gentle, friendly pediatric dental care for our youngest of patients.
Preventing cavities with sealants is one of the most efficient, proactive ways to reduce the risk of tooth decay. Because children are so susceptible, sealants are typically recommended on their permanent molars soon after they erupt. When maintained, the sealants can last into adulthood.
Sealants only protect the chewing surfaces of the teeth, so it is still important to practice excellent oral hygiene. Routine preventive cleanings, fluoride applications and daily brushing and flossing are essential. Call our family-friendly Blacksburg office today.
