Fissure Sealants in Kenmore

That’s because sealants act as a protective barrier, filling in deep grooves and fissures in your child’s teeth. Sometimes we recommend sealants for adults as well.

These protective coatings make it easier to clean those hard-to-reach areas, reducing the risk of decay. This is why they are called preventative—they seal the vulnerable spots, making them less likely to develop decay. The best part? No drilling or needles are involved!

The procedure for applying sealants is remarkably quick, comfortable, and straightforward. Kids handle it exceptionally well, thanks to its simplicity. The whole process is easy, ensuring a positive experience for both parents and their children.

When to Consider Sealants

Typically, we recommend parents bring their children in for sealants around the age of 6, when their first adult molars start to emerge. These molars often have the deepest fissures, making them more susceptible to decay. However, every child is unique, and some may not require sealants if their fissures are not narrow or deep. That’s why regular checkups are crucial. During these visits, we can evaluate your child’s teeth and determine if these thin coatings are necessary for additional protection.

Affordable Care for Growing Smiles

We understand that cost is a significant concern for many families. That’s why we are pleased to inform you that this service is covered by the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). This means eligible children can receive sealants at no out-of-pocket cost, ensuring their growing smiles remain healthy and bright.
