Dental Sealants in Portland, OR
Dental Sealants Protect Your Child's Teeth From Dental Decay
Our teeth feature a number of grooves and crevices that can be hard to clean with daily brushing. For younger kids who don't have the manual dexterity or attention to detail required to properly brush and floss, these areas can become a breeding ground for the build up of dental plaque and decay.
With our dental sealants in Portland, OR, Dr. Nguyen can effectively "seal" these areas of the mouth away from the effects of dental plaque. Using an incredibly thin and tooth-colored acrylic coating, Dr. Nguyen can create a barrier on a patient's treated teeth that keeps plaque out, thereby preventing the development of cavities and decay that can permanently damage a child's smile.
Once applied and hardened, dental sealants work as an additional layer of protection against the effects of tooth decay and cavities. Even more compelling, dental sealants for kids don't interfere with a child's ability to eat, drink, or talk. In fact, your child will never even feel or notice the acrylic coating once placed on their teeth.
The Healthier A Smile, The Better Kids Do In School
Studies have shown that kids who experience dental pain are four times more likely to have a low grade point average (GPA) when compared to kids with healthy teeth and gums. Kids who experience untreated tooth decay are also more likely to miss more school when compared to kids who enjoy a healthy smile.
Teeth sealant procedures offer an incredibly efficient and cost-effective option for keeping a child's smile looking and feeling its best. Don't risk the health of your child's teeth, and help them perform better in school with the gift of a healthy smile.
