Why Get Sealants?

At Northwest Children’s Dentistry, we believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  We want to stop dental problems before they start, which is why we might recommend your child get sealants.

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating secured to the chewing surface of the tooth.  Many permanent molars erupt with deep pits and grooves. The sealant fills these areas to create a barrier to keep food and bacteria out.  This simple procedure can reduce the risk of tooth decay by up to 50%.

As your child’s pediatric dentist in Tucson, we want to take care of all your children’s dental needs.  If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (520) 544-8522.
