Your child’s first dental exam at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill should occur when the first teeth are in, usually between six months and one year of age.
During this first check-up we can discuss sealants, a clear layer of plastic applied to the grooved surfaces of the teeth.
Sealants protect the teeth and prevent cavities by filling in the crevasses where food particles can get caught and breed dangerous bacteria They are especially effective on the back teeth, where most cavities occur.
The application process takes only one short visit. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied to teeth and hardened: it’s quick and painless. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.
If properly cared for, sealants can last for many years, protecting your child during the most cavity-prone ages. Sealants can also be re-applied, as necessary.
Dental sealants from Town Dental Group in Mint Hill are an added barrier of protection for your child’s teeth. We offer pediatric dentistry, as well as general and cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
