You are likely already aware that the reason we so strongly suggest dental sealants for your children is the fact that they’re very powerful. They fight the good fight against bad bacteria that can lead to cavities simply by acting as a barrier between dental tissue and plaque, food particles, etc. While this primary benefit is nothing to scoff at, we know that it’s always nice to receive even more compelling evidence regarding why you should choose them for your child’s smile!
#1: They Last And Last (And Last)
Of course, hearing that dental sealants offer preventive protection against cavities is a nice thing to learn. Then, however, you may wonder: Does this offer lasting protection or is it something that will require reapplication after reapplication? Fortunately, sealants keep on offering the same benefits for around 10 years. They may wear off sooner or stick around longer. In either case, it’s long-term!
#2: They’ll Be Invisible To Your Kiddos
Your kids won’t see the dental sealants if they look in the mirror. They won’t feel them either. Other kids, as a result, won’t see them. We can monitor them because we know what we are looking at, of course. However, beyond that, they will not impact your child’s teeth other than to keep them safe.
#3: There’s No “Removal” Process Needed
You may have noted we mentioned that dental sealants “wear off.” Over time, the sealant will diminish and wear away. There’s not a need to schedule a removal appointment or anything like that. Once placed, unless you want to re-apply them in the future, they’re about as low maintenance as it gets! Just keep on brushing and flossing.
