Dental Sealants in Newport Beach

The Luminous Smiles Dentist Can Help You Protect Your Child’s Teeth

Sealants are a very common preventative dental treatment for children and can effectively help prevent tooth decay. Placed in areas that are particularly cavity-prone, sealants offer a barrier between your child’s teeth and the plaque and bacteria that cause tooth decay. Because oral health is linked to your overall well-being, we are committed to supporting parents as they teach their children good oral health habits. Because they last for several years, sealants offer an extra layer of protection for your children’s teeth while they are still developing these good habits. At Luminous Smiles, our warm, friendly team has the knowledge and experience needed to answer any questions you may have about dental sealants.

How Are Dental Sealants Applied?

Once you and your child’s dentist have decided that sealants are a good option, an appointment will be made to have the sealant applied. This process is painless and quick. The dentist will clean the teeth and then paint on the sealant. The sealant hardens quickly and will not affect the appearance of your children’s teeth.

Sealants do not replace normal oral hygiene routines, and your child should continue to:

  • Brush and floss daily
  • Use fluoride toothpaste
  • Attend regular dental exams and cleanings
  • Maintain a diet low in sugar

Dental sealants can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years and children as young as 6 can receive this treatment. While the patient will be able to feel the sealants with their tongue, sealants do not interfere with normal tooth functions, and most children adapt quickly to the new feeling.
