Sealants Protect Your Child's Teeth

We all want to make sure your child’s smile remains healthy and cavity-free. Of course it can be challenging at times to get your child to brush their teeth, let alone brush them properly or as effectively as you would like. Fortunately, there are other ways to ensure that cavities don’t take root in your little one. Talk to your Mississauga family dentists at Creditview Dental about sealants.


Find out the reasons your child’s smile could benefit from dental sealants.

What is a sealant?

These thin, plastic resin barriers are placed onto the chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars to protect these susceptible areas from decay.

How are sealants placed?

When your child comes in for their next cleaning, their Mississauga general dentist would be happy to also apply sealants. It’s completely painless and only takes a couple minutes. After their routine cleaning, the dentist will paint the sealant over their back teeth where it will immediately bond with the tooth. Your child won’t even notice their sealants. A dental laser may also be used to speed up the bonding process.

My child brushes and flosses, so why do they need sealants?

While a child doesn’t need sealants in order to maintain a healthy, cavity-free smile, it’s important to note that it can be challenging to get into all the crevices of your child’s back teeth, regardless of whether it’s you or your child that’s cleaning their teeth every day. Sealants provide an additional layer of insurance against tooth decay.

Who should get sealants?

Once your child’s permanent molars have come in, it’s time to consider getting sealants. This usually occurs between the ages of 5 to 7. However, teens and adults who are susceptible to decay may also opt for sealants. It’s never too late!
