Dental Sealants in river oaks

The back teeth can be pretty difficult to clean because they are filled with many small, hard-to-reach crevices. Children often miss them while brushing, and they can even be tricky for adults. To help prevent decay from developing on these teeth, we can cover them with something called a dental sealant.

A sealant is just a thin, clear layer of plastic-based material that coats a tooth and prevents bacteria and plaque from damaging the enamel. They only take minutes to apply, and the process is completely painless. It’s an ideal treatment for children who are still learning how to take care of their teeth.

Could your child benefit from dental sealants? The only way to find out is to come see us, so be sure to contact our Houston office today to make an appointment.
