BPA-Free Dental Sealants
Cavity Prevention in Beaufort
Dental sealants are a thin, protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, creating a barrier that keeps out food particles and bacteria. Dental sealants are important for children because they can help prevent cavities.
The back teeth, particularly the molars, have deep grooves and pits that can be difficult to clean with a toothbrush and floss. Bacteria and food particles can get trapped in these areas, leading to tooth decay. By sealing these areas, you can effectively reduce the risk of cavities and preserve the health of your child’s teeth.
The procedure is quick, painless, and does not require any drilling or anesthesia.
Dental sealants are a cost-effective way to protect your child’s teeth. They can last for several years and are typically covered by most dental insurance plans.
Some research has suggested that exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) may have harmful effects on health, particularly in children. At Zest Pediatric Dentistry, we make sure to use BPA-free sealants as a safer alternative to traditional sealants, which may contain BPA.
