Laser dental sealing in children
What does laser dental sealing mean?
Dental sealing with laser - non-invasive and protective procedure for the tooth, which addresses both the milk dentition and the permanent dentition. Practically, the grooves of the tooth are decontaminated with the laser beam, thus being prepared for the application of a sealing material that seals the area, protecting it from the appearance of caries.
This procedure aims to protect children's teeth from caries, because the sealant covers the grooves, and food debris and bacterial plaque are easy to remove. Most of the time, children have decayed gums, because daily brushing is difficult for the little ones. Thus, a method of protecting teeth from decay and preventing their infection with bacteria is the dental sealing method.
Who is recommended to seal their teeth with a laser?
Sealing children's teeth is recommended with the eruption of the first permanent molars, around the age of 6, but also in the case of milk teeth. In the case of milk teeth, cavities are quite common, and they can become painful. Also, milk teeth lost before the term favor the migration of the other teeth and disturb the bite. The dentists at the LIFE DENTAL SPA clinic recommend sealing the teeth before the appearance of cavities, because oral hygiene is not performed properly at a young age.
Unlike the classic method of dental sealing, at Life Dental Spa the little ones benefit from a simple, quick procedure with the help of the laser.
Laser dental sealing is a non-invasive technique that is performed in 3 steps:
Treatment of dental surfaces to be sealed with the laser
The laser is bactericidal and eliminates all the bacteria present on the surfaces to be sealed, which will remain clean and ready to receive the sealant. In this way, the occurrence of secondary caries under the seal or on its edges is avoided. Also, the preparation of the dental surfaces with the laser increases the adhesion of the sealant to the tooth.
Application of the dental seal
It is a fluid composite material that is placed on the grooves of the teeth to be sealed and that photopolymerizes (hardens) in the presence of UV light.
Functional adaptation (in the bite)
After applying the seal, the doctor checks if the sealing material does not affect the occlusion (bite), with the help of joint paper, and corrects any inappropriate contacts.
Laser dental sealing in children has the following benefits:
