Does your child need sealants? Dental sealants are plastic coatings painted on the surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars). smileDental sealants are recognized as an effective approach to preventing dental problems in kids and adults. Dr. Peter Jost, (located in Eastpointe, MI) offers full-service, state-of-the-art dental care to people of all ages. Here are 4 ways this family dentistry procedure can help your child's smile.
 

Sealants Prevent Cavities

Dental sealants are protective barriers that are put over the teeth that are the most prone to cavities. Sealants can prevent cavities for many years. Dental sealants cover the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and protect these areas from decay by "sealing out" food and plaque. The sealants are painted on the pits and fissures of the teeth, forming a protective shield over your child's tooth enamel.
 

Protect Your Child's Teeth

A recent study shows that sealants are effective at warding off tooth decay, sometimes for up to 10 years. Because of the likelihood of developing decay in the pits and fissures of the back teeth, kids are good candidates for sealants. Sealants are no longer just a treatment for kids. Adults without dental fillings in their back teeth can also benefit from sealants.
 

Avoid Fillings and Crowns

Having dental sealants put on your child's teeth before they decay will save you a significant amount of money over time by avoiding fillings or crowns used to fix your child's teeth. The cost of sealants is a very small price to pay compared to the expenses associated with dental work that may become necessary if your child's back teeth remain unprotected.
 

Prevent Tooth Loss

As kids grow and develop, they will lose their baby teeth and new, permanent teeth will take their place. Permanent teeth are not supposed to shed, but sometimes they do for different reasons. Some causes of premature tooth loss include poor oral hygiene, injury, poor nutrition, or diseases. Good dental hygiene, regular visits to your dentist in Eastpointe, MI, and sealants can help children keep their teeth as they get older.

If your child needs dental sealants, why wait? We can help you today! Call Dr. Peter Jost at (586) 771-1460 today to schedule your child's appointment in Eastpointe, MI. We want all of our patients to have a healthy, beautiful smile. You will experience exemplary service and state-of-the-art family dentistry care at Dr. Peter Jost, D.D.S.!
