Dental Sealants

Preventive dental care is always the best option in maintaining your child’s healthy smile. One treatment we offer at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville for preventing decay and damage to our young patients’ teeth is dental sealants. Good oral hygiene, checkups, cleanings and dental sealants are the best combination for preventing tooth decay in children. Dr. Chong, our pediatric dentist, recommends dental sealants for most of our young patients when their permanent molars arrive. Sealants are safe and effective for protecting back teeth, and the treatment is covered by most dental insurance plans as a preventive care option.

Dental Sealants Before and After

Protect Your Child from Cavities with Teeth Sealants

During the elementary school years, your child will receive their back molars. These permanent teeth are larger and covered with ridges, providing more surface and spaces for bacteria that cause decay to hide. It is common for these first molars to succumb to cavities, even with good oral care and regular checkups/cleanings. The tiny grooves are hard to keep clean, and surface cavities can quickly form on these new teeth.

Dental sealants are a non-invasive treatment to keep decay-causing bacteria out of the grooves and ridges of new molars. Sealants provide a protective coating that help to prevent decay. Fluoride treatments can be used to help strengthen the enamel on front and back teeth, with dental sealants adding extra decay protection to the hard-to-clean back molars. When used together, sealants and fluoride can minimize the chance of decay and damage to your child’s teeth.

Keep your child’s smile protected with preventive dental care from Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville. Call us to schedule your child’s next checkup. Ask us about dental sealants, fluoride treatments and other options to protect your child’s beautiful smile.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
