If your child has a poor oral hygiene routine or deep pits and fissures on their back teeth, then dental sealants can be more than you might realize. Dental sealants are thin barriers that are painted and hardened onto the teeth to prevent bacteria from having access to the tooth enamel. This can help your child further avoid dental cavities. If you’re interested in protecting your child’s smile with dental sealants in Riverton, Utah, and in Herriman and Bluffdale, please call South Hills Dental Specialists at 385-210-1111 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Sloan or Dr. Jacbosen.
