Children and teens are prone to tooth decay, especially in their back teeth. Decay can weaken teeth or cause an infection that creates tooth pain and even may result in losing teeth. Dental cavities are common in kids, which require dental treatment to remove and fill. To prevent cavities and tooth decay, many kids and teens are good candidates for dental sealants. Our dental team at SmileBuilders, Inc. in Canton, Batesville, Byram, and Lucedale, MS, offers dental sealants and promotes preventive dentistry to reduce the need for dental treatments.

Decay and cavities are caused by bacteria feeding on food debris on the teeth, which releases an acid on the surface of the teeth. This can eat through the enamel and create small holes into the dentin called cavities, or caries. Brushing and flossing after meals can help prevent this decay from occurring, but kids and teens are not always thorough in their oral hygiene. Dental sealants can offer another layer of protection for the teeth, reducing the chance of cavities and tooth decay.

Protect Your Child from Cavities with Teeth Sealants

Cavities and fillings permanently weaken the tooth structure, which can lead to further tooth damage in adulthood. Plus, removing cavities and adding fillings are costly dental procedures that can be avoided. Dental sealants can quickly and painlessly be applied to the teeth to enhance the enamel. This material is made from a special dental plastic that is safe and effective at protecting the teeth from decay. It is usually applied to the back molars in children and teens and reapplied as needed every few years as it wears away.

If you have a child or teen, protect their teeth from decay and cavities with dental sealants. Our dental team at SmileBuilders, Inc. can educate you on the benefits of this safe procedure, which can be performed quickly at your child’s next checkup. Contact us at our practice to schedule an appointment, and make sure to ask about dental sealants during your visit.

What our happy patients say see all reviews

  • 150% for sure. Dr. Preston Cobbler one of the best dentists I've gone to in my years of life. He is great man, personally that can't be of as a pretender. I didn't know he had got started in my mouth, I had a broken tooth to the root, I didn't know he had started the work, he had finished the work in my mouth. He will be my dentist for the duration of my life!! I earnestly would rate him a 10 on the work in my mouth. Thanks Dr Cobbler for your kindness, work ability, knowledge, and sense of feeling for your patients pain.
