Sealing out Cavities with Dental Sealants in Corsicana, TX
Your child’s back teeth, or molars, have grooved surfaces used for chewing. These grooves are a great place for food and bacteria to hide, and brushing may not always catch all of the stuff that eventually becomes plaque and leads to decay. Dental sealants from Dr. James Slaughter actually seal off the grooves, keeping bacteria and food from getting into the crevices. This makes it easier to keep your child’s teeth decay-free as he or she is still learning proper brushing techniques. Our practice welcomes new patients from Ennis, TX and surrounding areas!
Even with dental sealants, your child needs to learn proper oral health care techniques and come in for regular dental hygiene visits. Plus, if your child is extremely anxious about his or her next dental visit, Corsicana Pediatric Dentistry offers sedation to help calm his or her fears.
