Dr. My Pham informs parents about the advantages of scheduling a dental appointment for dental sealant.

    CONCORD, CA, December 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Parents are very protective of their children, so it goes to say that protecting a child's oral health is a top priority. According to the American Academy of Pediatric dentistry, tooth decay is the single most common dental issue for children. Healthy permanent teeth does factor into the health and alignment of the teeth and gums. To effectively block cavities, parents should talk to Dr. My Pham, Concord orthodontist, and Dental Specialty Group regarding dental sealants for children.

"Children and teenagers are good candidates for sealants-a thin, plastic coating. Dental sealant lessens the chance of children developing cavities in newly erupted permanent teeth. The molars and premolars have fissures that easily collect food debris and accumulate bacteria, so it's important to take precautionary measures," said Dr. Pham, orthodontist and pediatric dentist in Concord.

Daily brushing and flossing will remove food and plaque, but it isn't guaranteed that bacteria won't settle into the grooves of the back teeth (molars and premolars). Since food constantly comes in contact with the back teeth, for the purpose of breaking down food, there is an increased risk of developing tooth decay. The cavity-prone years range from 6 to 14.

A dental sealant is the best "weapon" to fight decay. Dr. Pham and Dental Specialty Group associates can easily apply a sealant to newly erupted teeth. The process is very simple. A molar or premolar is cleaned and dried before the dentist can apply the sealant. A sealant starts out in liquid form, but then it quickly hardens over the grooves of the back teeth.

The best time to get sealants is right after the permanent teeth erupt, so teeth get less exposure to food particles and plaque. Typically, the first permanent molars erupt between the ages of 5 and 7; by age 11, most children have their second permanent molars. If teeth develop severe decay, a child or teenager might need a tooth extraction. An open space may cause surrounding teeth to shift, possibly causing malocclusion issues. Dental sealant can roughly last up to 10 years. Regular dental checkups will keep track of oral health and other potential problems, such as malocclusion.
