If you take your kids to the dentist on a regular basis, it’s likely that your dentist has at some point recommended sealants for their teeth.

You may be wondering why he would recommend sealants, so that’s why our team here at Sam Amirani DDS in Wichita, Kansas put this list together of reasons that your kids need dental sealants.

What are sealants?

First, let’s start by discussing what sealants are. They’re simply clear coatings of a plastic-like material that fill in the deep crevices in your kids’ back molars. These coverings help keep food out of the deep crevices and prevent cavities.

Why do my kids need them?

Kids aren’t known for their excellent oral health. As a parent, you’re probably all-too-aware of how difficult it can be at times to get your kids to brush their teeth.

Sealants help protect some of the most cavity-prone teeth from decaying, even if your kids aren’t as on top of their brushing as you’d like them to be. By preventing food and other debris to build up in the cracks and crevices of molars, you automatically eliminate a large portion of the causes of cavities in young children.

Sealants are a great way to help your kids have the best oral health possible. If you think they can help your kids, or you simply want more information, call us today at 3166867155 to schedule an appointment.
