Since your molars are not only the most used in the chewing process, but also the most difficult to reach and clean, they are therefore the most vulnerable to cavities and decay. This is what makes pediatric sealants so important. When molars first come in at around 5-7, and the second set follows at 11-14, it’s important to have a pediatric sealant placed to ensure they are protected early.
Getting Pediatric Sealants
Sealants are painted onto the tooth over an adhesive applied first. The liquid sealant then hardens, creating a barrier between the tooth and any plaque, food particles, and bacteria. Pediatric sealants last for about 10 years, and can be reapplied if necessary. Call and schedule an appointment to talk about this easy and affordable preventative step!
The term pain free dentist doesn’t get said often, but this is as close as it gets. Dr. Nick does a great job. I HATE needles and he talked me through it completely. If you want top quality dental care, coupled with a very relaxing environment, this is the place! 5 stars doesn’t do it justice!
I have been going to Dr. Nick for awhile now and it is the best place to go. They know what they are doing, in addition the whole staff is great. My whole family sees him.
Thank you so much for making me feel safe and comfortable after a couple terrible dental experiences at other offices. You guys are amazing!
