Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart


Preventing Cavities with dental sealants

Walter J. Turner, DDS

The pits in your kids’ back teeth are  hard to clean. Sealants can help.

Kids can grow up cavity free. Helping our patients achieve a cavity free smile is a huge part of our in-office prevention program. We are devoted to helping our patients develop good dental habits to promote good oral health.

Dental sealants are an important tool in helping prevent cavities in your kids’ teeth. One of the most common places that tooth decay develops is on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. These teeth have deep grooves called pits and fissures. These grooves help us chew our food but also make cleaning those teeth difficult.

A dental sealant is made of a tooth-colored resin that is placed in these grooves and acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acid. Sealants can be placed in one easy appointment. We use an Air Abrasion system to remove all debris from the grooves to ensure maximum bonding to the tooth.

Sealants are a cost-effective and easy procedure to boost your child’s goal of a cavity-free smile.
