Dental Sealants

Dr. Jordan Pettigrew

Should dental sealants be put on baby teeth? Your Dentist might think it is a good idea, especially if your child’s baby teeth have deep pits and grooves. Baby teeth save space for permanent teeth. It is important to keep baby teeth healthy so they don’t fall out early. Sealants are also commonly prescribed for deep grooves on the first and second adult molar.  Ask us about sealants at your child’s next visit.
