Come to Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry, where our pediatric dentists and team can give your child the tools they need to achieve a healthy smile: specifically, dental sealants, which can provide protection to specific teeth that are more prone to plaque and tartar buildup.

Our pediatric dental sealants at Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry are a great option for children who have teeth that are more prone to tooth decay. The sealants are made of a resin composite the same color as tooth enamel, making it hard to distinguish from your child’s real teeth. Dr. David Gustafson, Dr. Jeffery K. Rupp, and our associates will brush the composite over the indentations and natural grooves (cusps) of your child’s molars, which will act as a shield against harmful bacteria, food and plaque buildup, and tooth decay. It is also easier for your child to keep their teeth clean through regular brushing and flossing.

Our pediatric dentists and team typically recommend that children receive dental sealants on their secondary (permanent) molars, which appear between the ages of 6 to 12 years old. They last many years and can be reapplied several times depending on the severity of decay that that specific tooth may be prone to. The process only takes a few minutes during their regular visit and has the ability to provide long-term protection to your child’s smile.

We invite you to contact our office at 385-378-5791 if you think your child needs a pediatric dental sealant in Salt Lake City, Utah, at our Holladay location.
