Sealants

In order to help kids control and avoid the development of cavities, the Fort Malden Dentistry team can apply dental sealants, to seal the grooves in molars.


What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants are made from clear or tooth coloured material. Sealants are applied to the surface of a child’s permanent molars in order to prevent the formation of cavities on these teeth.

Will my child experience pain when the sealants are applied?

Not at all! The application process is completely painless.

How long will my child’s dental sealants last?

Dental sealants will last for several years if proper care is taken. If necessary, the dental sealant is sometimes re-applied to teeth.

How will I know if dental sealants are right for my child?

During your child’s regular dental examination, our caring team will assess your child’s dental health. If sealants are recommended to prevent decay, we will advise you during the appointment.

Will my child still need fluoride treatments if she has dental sealants?

Yes, even if your child has dental sealants, she still needs fluoride treatments. While dental sealants provide excellent protection from cavities for the teeth on which they have been applied, fluoride will protect all of your child’s teeth from cavities.
