If you are looking to give your child the best start possible when it comes to their dental health and hygiene, our Sugar Land pediatric dentist at ISmile Specialists is here to help. We offer a number of helpful preventative services designed to keep your child’s teeth in the best shape possible for as long as possible. One of our most popular preventative pediatric dental services is the use of dental sealants. Dental sealants are thin, clear plastic coatings that our Sugar Land pediatric dentist can put in place over the chewing surfaces of your child’s first sets molars in order to keep them protected. Our dentist usually waits to use dental sealants until the first molars come in, because those are the adult teeth that need the most protection, and baby teeth will eventually fall out anyway and so do not need the same protection as your child’s first adult molars. Children tend to be extra cavity-prone, especially so when it comes to the back teeth where most chewing takes place, and so this level of protection is highly beneficial in keeping their first teeth protected. Choosing dental sealants for your child is actually a great investment both health-wise and financially. Spending the time and money now to have the dental sealants put in can save you much more time and money in the long run if your child had multiple cavities and other issues involving those important, adult molars. Our Sugar Land pediatric dentist can make more specific treatment recommendations regarding dental sealants and other preventative services for your child during your next visit to our office.
