Let’s face it, no matter how much we try to tell our children that they should take care of their teeth, they likely aren’t going to realize the importance of oral health until they get older.

We provide a relaxing and calming environment, so your child will be sure to have an enjoyable experience while at our office.

What Are Sealants?
A dental sealant is a material that is placed on the surface area of a tooth. In most cases, we will recommend fitting the sealant on top of the molars because these are the teeth that chew food the most. As wonderful as it would be if they did, most children don’t keep up with their oral health during their teenage years. So after their baby teeth have fallen out and they have their adult teeth, there is some really crucial time during those teenage years that they are putting their teeth at risk. They may not have the best diet, or they may just fail to keep up with proper oral maintenance.
Whatever the case may be, dental sealants can make sure that your child’s teeth will last for years to come by protecting the surface area. The goal of dental sealants is to limit damage that may occur. Give us a call today and we’ll take a look at your child’s teeth to see if they would be an ideal candidate for dental sealant treatment.
Are Sealants Only For Kids?
In most cases, we highly suggest that children get dental sealants during their teenage years. However, the great news is that we also can use this treatment for adults. Those who are having a hard time keeping their oral health in the type of shape that they desire can make an appointment with us to determine whether or not dental sealants would be an ideal option for them. In some cases, we may even be able to begin the dental sealant process during your first visit to our office.
Whether it’s you or your children, it’s important that you understand how valuable your teeth are. After all, the ones that you have are the ones that should last you for your entire life! If you want to take the necessary measures to ensure that all of the teeth in your family are protected, give Bronitsky Family Dentistry a call today at (503) 649-5665 to learn more about dental sealants.
