Protect Teeth with Dental Sealants
Young children aren't just miniature versions of adults. They have unique dental needs. Our team understands the special needs of young patients, and we aim to help them enjoy trips to the dentist.
Bring your children in for a first visit around age 3, or sooner if you notice problems with their teeth, gums, or tooth development. In this early childhood visit, your children can become familiar with the friendly faces of people who will help them keep their teeth strong and healthy. When children get accustomed to the sights, sounds, and smells of the dental office at an early age, they are more likely to feel comfortable with dental care throughout life.
Because children often have a difficult time reaching back teeth when they brush, Dr. Hong or Dr. Lam may recommend dental sealants to help prevent cavities. Dental sealants are thin coatings that fill the grooves of molars. They block food particles and plaque from lodging in crevices and causing tooth decay. To place dental sealants, we simply clean the teeth, paint a thin layer of the coating on the teeth, and harden the sealants with a curing light.
Make sure your children enjoy healthy teeth for life! Call now and schedule an appointment with Dr. Hong or Dr. Lam for dental sealants. Our Westmont office serves patients from Downer's Grove, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, and the surrounding areas.
