Dental Sealants

Sealants for Kids in the Maplewood, MN Area – Protect Those Back Teeth!

Even as an adult, you may find it difficult to brush and floss your very back teeth – the molars. They are hard to reach for many people, especially younger kids. When you factor in the sweet tooth that many children share, it is no wonder that the molar teeth are often prone to cavities.

Sealants are an easy preventative treatment that can make a big difference. They are polymer coatings that guard against food particles, bacteria, and harmful acids. Applied to the chewing surfaces of molar teeth, sealants last for years and can help your child avoid painful decay and costly dental treatments.

In most cases, children should receive sealants around age six for their first molars and around age twelve for their second molars. However, sealants are not limited to just kids! Adults can receive the same benefit from sealants if they never had the treatment as a child, or if the sealants they had previously have been lost over time. The application is quick and pain-free at Bluejay Family Dentistry.

You can schedule an appointment for sealants by simply calling (651) 770-2900 today.
