“Dental Sealants Make Sense”
During the months of February and March, I will be providing free dental sealants, cleanings and fluoride to qualifying students previously seen for a dental screening by the West Shore School District Dental Hygienist.
- Dental sealants are clear or tooth-colored coatings that fill the grooves of back permanent teeth (molars) to keep out food and germs that cause cavities.
- The procedure is done with sterile tools, equipment. No drills, no numbing.
- Teeth simply are wiped clean; a thin coating is painted on the tooth surfaces and dries resembling a white filling.
- No eating or drinking restrictions after placement.
Support for this program is due in part to the West Shore School District, the Pennsylvania Coalition for Oral Health, The American Dental Association, Our West Shore Families.
