Sealants protect the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of back teeth where most cavities in children are found. Made of clear or shaded plastic, sealants are applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity-free.
Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is difficult—sometimes impossible—to clean the tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth. Food and bacteria build up in these crevices, placing your child in danger of tooth decay. Sealants “seal out” food and plaque, thus reducing the risk of decay.
As you know Governor Abbott has loosened Covid restrictions for the state of Texas recently which go into effect tomorrow Wednesday March 10, 2021. We wanted to inform everyone that we will continue to require masks while in our office and limit the amount of persons in our office for the safety of our staff and patients. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through this.
