Watertown NY’s Only Pediatric Dentist since 2011
Protecting your kids teeth is so important to their development. Missing teeth carry many long-term risks for children that can affect their speech, their bite, and ultimately their diet. Along with other preventative dentistry services, Watertown Pediatric Dentistry in Watertown, NY recommends dental sealants to preserve your child’s oral health.
Sealants are placed on the chewing surface of the permanent molars to fill in crevasses where acid-causing plaque can pool and begin damaging the enamel. According to the American Dental Association, sealants on permanent molars reduce the risk of cavities by 80%.
