Your child’s first dental exam at Jordan Landing Smiles in West Jordan should occur when the first teeth are in, usually between six months and one year of age. During your child’s first check-up at our dentist office, we can discuss sealants, a clear layer of plastic applied to the grooved surfaces of the teeth.
Sealants protect the teeth and prevent cavities by filling in the crevasses where food particles can get caught and breed dangerous bacteria They are especially effective in the back teeth where most cavities occur.
The application takes only one short visit to Jordan Landing Smiles. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied to teeth and hardened: it’s quick and painless. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.
Sealants are covered by most Utah dental insurance plans. For West Jordan parents who pay out-of-pocket, sealants are still cost-effective considering the cavities and future visits that can be avoided. Some Utah dental insurance plans have age limitations for sealants. Check your policy if you are unsure of the qualifications.
