Keep your child’s smile healthy
Our dental sealant treatment is a quick and painless way to protect your child’s teeth from cavities. The sealant is a thin plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where most cavities in children are found.
The sealant forms a protective barrier that keeps food and bacteria from getting trapped in the crevices of the teeth, making it easier to brush away harmful plaque. At Acorn Pediatric Dental, we use the latest techniques and equipment to ensure comfortable and efficient treatment for your child.
Don’t wait until your child has a cavity to start protecting their teeth. Contact us today to book an appointment with Dr. Tesoriero and give your child’s teeth the extra protection they need to stay healthy and strong. Call (732) 852-9200.
Dental sealants are particularly great for children who have:
- $Deep grooves and pits on their molars and premolars, making them more susceptible to tooth decay.
- $Difficulty reaching their back teeth while brushing or flossing.
- $A history of dental cavities or tooth decay.
- $A diet high in sugary or starchy foods, which can increase the risk of cavities.
- $Difficulty following a consistent dental care routine.
