What Are Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings painted onto the chewing surfaces of back teeth, primarily molars and premolars. They act as a shield, preventing bacteria and food particles from settling into the grooves of the teeth, which could lead to cavities.

These sealants are a crucial part of preventative dentistry, especially for children with developing teeth more prone to decay. Our team uses safe and effective sealants at Texas Little Teeth to keep those little smiles healthy and bright.

Why Choose Sealants for Your Child?

Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dental sealants can reduce the risk of cavities by up to 80% in molars? That’s incredible protection for your child’s teeth!

Sealants act as a barrier against decay, preserving the integrity of the tooth enamel. They are painless to apply and can significantly decrease the chances of your child needing fillings or more extensive dental work.

Types of Sealants

Traditional Resin-Based Sealants

Our traditional resin-based sealants provide robust protection against cavities. These sealants are composed of a safe, tooth-colored resin material skillfully applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth. They act as a barrier, preventing food particles and bacteria from settling in the tiny grooves and fissures of the teeth, ultimately reducing the risk of decay.

Glass Ionomer Sealants

Our glass ionomer sealants are an excellent choice for those looking for a more environmentally friendly option. These sealants are known for their natural look and composition, releasing fluoride to strengthen your child’s teeth further. They bond exceptionally well to the tooth surface, offering reliable protection against decay while blending seamlessly with the natural color.



Sealants are intended to prevent cavities on healthy teeth and are not suitable for teeth already affected by decay. Our dental professionals will assess the teeth and recommend appropriate treatments for existing decay.

After getting sealants, regular oral hygiene practices like brushing, flossing, and attending routine dental check-ups are essential. This helps in preserving the effectiveness and longevity of the sealants.

No, the sealant application process is painless and quick. Children typically experience no discomfort during the procedure.

Your child can eat and drink immediately after getting sealants. There are no restrictions, and they can resume their normal activities right away.
