Dental Sealants to Prevent Cavities

The chewing surfaces of the teeth have deep grooves and pits. It is common
for food particles to become lodged and brushing the chewing surfaces
of the teeth may not be enough to completely clean the teeth, which can
leave these areas vulnerable to decay. Dental sealants are an easy and
cost effective treatment for protecting your child’s teeth.

Dental sealants are a primarily used on children to help protect the vulnerable
pits and grooves on top chewing surfaces of posterior teeth. Sealants
are made of dental resin and once hardened; it will form a protective
smooth surface on the teeth.

Dental sealants offer benefits that include:

  • A significant reduction in cavities
  • Easy application
  • Painless procedure
  • Affordable
  • Lasting protection

Many people are less concerned about baby teeth and hesitant to apply sealants
since they are going to fall out anyway. However, baby teeth hold space
for the adult teeth and the health of the baby teeth can affect future
oral health. Caring for these teeth will keep them healthy and prevent
the pain associated with tooth decay.

The Sealant Application Process

Our office is equipped to provide comprehensive care for our young patients,
including sealants and fillings in Anaheim. The process of applying sealants
is easy, painless, and can be completed during a normal dental exam and
cleaning visit. The sealant is a protective coating that is painted on
to the surfaces of the teeth.

The general steps in the process of applying sealants include:

  • Cleaning and drying the teeth that will be sealed
  • Using an acidic solution to roughen the tooth’s surface to help the
    sealant stick
  • Rinsing the teeth and drying them again
  • Application of the sealant on the chewing surfaces
  • Using a special light to bond the sealant

While sealants are effective for reducing cavities, they won’t protect
your teeth alone. Good oral hygiene with daily brushing and flossing are
essential for keeping your teeth healthy. In addition, regular dental
visits are needed to keep your teeth healthy and ensure that the sealants
are working to protect the teeth.

Dental Fillings for Cavities in Baby & Adult Teeth

Even with the best efforts of children, parents, and dentists, cavities
sometimes happen. When a young patient has a cavity, we focus on preserving
as much of the healthy tooth as possible. Cavities can be filled with
either metal or a composite material that matches the color of the teeth.
We can explain the options and determine the best type of filling material
for each cavity.

We offer complete care for kids of all ages, including sealants and fillings
in Anaheim, in a fun, comfortable, and engaging office environment with
a highly trained staff of professionals. You can rest assured that we
have the knowledge, tools, and skills needed to restore and maintain your
child’s oral health.

Anaheim Pediatric Cavity Filling

Receiving a dental filling is a way to restore the tooth after a cavity
has been removed. The filling will take place of the decayed portion of
the tooth so it can return to normal shape and function. At Starship M,
we use composite fillings, which are tooth-colored and durable.
