Your Time is Important!
Glastonbury, CT Pediatric Dentist. “We believe in being on time, all the time. We realize that time is very important in a parent’s busy schedule. We reserve a reasonable amount of time for each patient visit and don’t schedule large number of patients in each time slot.

Pediatric Dental Sealants
Q: What are sealants? Sealants protect the surface of your teeth including the grooved and pitted surfaces. Sealants are most useful in protecting back teeth where most cavities in children begin. Sealants are made from a clear plastic like material. Sealants are applied to children’s teeth to help keep them cavity-free.
Q: How do sealants work? It can be very difficult to clean the tiny grooves and pits on the surface of your teeth. If food and eventually bacteria collects in these spaces it may develop into tooth decay. Sealants “seal out” food and plaque, and reduces the risk of your child developing tooth decay.
Dental Health and Fluoride Treatment – Acids can demineralize your child’s teeth. For children under the age of six fluoride protects their teeth and helps the development of permanent teeth.
