Dental Sealants for Kids in Salisbury

A dental sealant is an adhesive protective coating that is applied to the biting surfaces of back teeth to prevent plaque buildup and cavity formation.

Molars (back teeth) have many deep grooves and pits which can be difficult to clean, especially for children who may lack the dexterity or attention to detail to properly maintain these areas. Additionally, children’s teeth are at a higher risk for cavities because the outer layer of their teeth (enamel) is still immature when the teeth first appear in the mouth. By applying dental sealants to these teeth, we can effectively prevent cavities on the biting surfaces by 90%.  Sealants do not, however, protect the touching surfaces between the teeth.

The dental sealant procedure is quick and painless and does not require a shot or removal of tooth structure. Our sealant material is high quality and BPA-free.
