In dentistry, dental sealants are a popular form of care for kids to protect their teeth from cavities. That is why our team here at Riverdale Dental P.C. wants to give you the information you need to feel assured your child is receiving the best dental care possible.

Dental sealants are thin coatings that are applied to the surfaces of your back teeth in order to prevent them from tooth-decay. Sealants are hard to see and can are not usually visible by others. However, dental sealants can last as long 5 to 10 years protecting your children’s teeth from severe damage and gum disease.

Dental sealants are applied after your teeth are cleaned. The dental sealant is easily painted over the tooth and hardens as it dries. This sealant acts as a shield against bacteria and cavities.
