Here at Dental Specialty Associates, our Downtown Manhattan pedodontist and the rest of the staff here are proud to provide high quality eye care to patients of all ages. Some of our most popular services for our younger, pediatric patients are our dental sealants. If you are looking for a way to help prevent tooth decay for your child, and save yourself from high dental costs and complications for your child in the future, dental sealants are an excellent preventative option for you both to consider. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are put in place over and around your child’s teeth to protect them from decay for several years at a time. Dental sealants are virtually invisible, and are usually used on the back teeth so that they are not noticeable at all.
Our Downtown Manhattan pedodontist usually recommends that sealants be put in on your child’s first permanent molars, to keep them safe and protected for years to come as your child grows and develops. It is not a secret that children and prone to tooth decay and cavities, and so dental sealants keep your child’s brand new teeth from being exposed to the cavity causing bacteria that might be present in your child’s mouth. Dental sealants are only some of the many preventative services that our Downtown Manhattan pedodontist have available to start your child off on the right path when it comes to leading a life of optimal oral health and hygiene. It is also highly recommended that you bring your child in for regular visits so that we can perform professional cleanings and exams, reducing plaque buildup and keeping your child’s teeth as healthy and clean as possible at all times. Our Downtown Manhattan pedodontist can make specific recommendations about dental sealants and other services the next time that you and your child visit us at Dental Specialty Associates.
