Who Can Get Dental Sealants?

Children and teens alike can benefit from protective sealants, but the earlier your child receives them, the more effective they are. Your child’s first molars appear at around age 6, and the second molars erupt at around age 12. Sealing these teeth as soon as they erupt can help keep them cavity-free from an early age. This can help your child’s smile remain healthy and give them the best possible start on their road to lifelong oral wellness.

How Can I Help My Child Prevent Cavities?

While dental sealants are an excellent weapon against cavities, our dental team also takes opportunities to educate kids on other ways that they can keep their teeth healthy and strong. We discuss how cavities form and instruct kids on oral hygiene and eating habits so that they are better equipped to care for their smiles when they leave our office.
Does your child struggle with frequent cavities? To learn if your child could benefit from dental sealants, please contact Sweetpea Smiles today. We consider it a privilege to protect the growing smiles of Sugar Land.
