Dental Sealants

Pediatric dental sealants are a noninvasive and highly effective preventive measure to protect your child’s precious smile. These thin, protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, where cavities are most likely to develop. The sealants act as a barrier, shielding the vulnerable grooves and pits of these teeth from food particles and bacteria that can lead to decay.

Our pediatric dentist and team prioritize your child’s comfort and safety. The application of sealants is painless and quick, involving just a few simple steps. First, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and dried. Then, the sealant material is carefully painted onto the surfaces of the teeth, where it bonds securely. Then the material is hardened with a special curing light.

By opting for dental sealants in Los Angeles, California, you can protect your child’s teeth from decay, especially if they have certain problematic teeth that are more prone to damage. Sealants can remain effective for several years with proper care. They provide peace of mind, knowing that your child’s teeth are shielded from the common culprits of cavities. Combine sealants with regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups with Dr. Smit Dangaria at Shining Stars Kids Dental, to ensure your child’s healthy smile.
