INVISIBLE DENTAL SEALANTS WORK LIKE MAGIC
Dental sealants for any age are an excellent way to help prevent cavities. They keep food and bacteria from getting stuck in grooves and crevices on the tooth surface, which if not removed causes tooth decay.
Dental sealants are especially ideal because:
- No anesthetic is necessary to apply sealants.
- Sealants cover deep grooves and pits that people often miss when brushing their teeth.
- Sealants are long lasting and invisible.
Tooth sealants are made of a composite resin that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of your teeth. The sealant provides a protective layer against any food or bacteria in the mouth.
By cleaning the tooth thoroughly then placing the sealant, we can give you the best preventative dental care possible. We recommend having every patient’s teeth sealed.
KEEP BRUSHING AND VISITING US
Dental sealants protect the biting surface of the tooth, but it cannot be placed between the teeth. Therefore, you can still develop cavities between the teeth. Be sure to maintain a consistent schedule of brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental visits and dental x-rays to help prevent and catch early cavities from forming and to maintain overall oral health.
