Dental Sealants | Deer Valley

Removing trapped food particles out of the back teeth is the hardest part of cleaning your teeth, and this is a common place for decay to begin. Smile Explorers’ pediatric dentists can protect your child’s back molars with cost-effective plastic sealants that cover the surface and protect the tooth from food and bacteria.

As soon as each permanent molar comes through, we will apply the sealant:

  • The tooth is painted with sealant, making sure all grooves are filled

  • Sealants normally last several years

  • As the sealant wears down, we can repaint the tooth

  • If your child is prone to cavities, sealants can continue to reduce the risk of decay

At Smile Explorers, we’ll check the surfaces at every check-up and let you know when the sealant should be reapplied. Our goal is to keep your child’s teeth healthy today to help them have a bright smile for life!
