Dental Sealants Milton, GA

Dental Sealants

One method we use to help maintain our young patient’s dental health at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry are dental sealants. This treatment, along with good dental hygiene, can help prevent cavities and maintain the health of molars in children, reducing the amount of fillings and other dental procedures they may need in the future. Sealants are a safe, non-invasive, and effective treatment that our pediatric dentist Dr. Chong may recommend for your child once their first molars arrive. They are often completely covered by insurance plans with no out-of-pocket costs.

Dental Sealants Before and After

Protect Your Child From Cavities with Sealants

The back molars that come in behind the primary or baby teeth are the most prone to cavities when they first erupt. Molars contain small ridges and grooves that make it difficult to remove the plaque that causes cavities, even with regular brushing and flossing. Many of these ridges are smaller than the bristles on a toothbrush, and can be very challenging to keep clean.

A dental sealant is a protective coating that is applied to the molars once they emerge to protect them from bacteria containing plaque. While fluoride should be used to protect all the surfaces of the teeth, sealants add extra protection against cavities on the chewing surfaces on the back molars. This can prevent unnecessary cavities, fillings and damage to these important teeth that are particularly prone to tooth decay.

To learn more about the benefits of dental sealants and find out if it is right for your child, contact Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry today. We are your local pediatric specialty dentist practice in Milton, Alpharetta, Cumming and surrounding areas.

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.
