Do you suffer from constant cavities even though you brush your teeth daily for the recommended time? Some people are simply more susceptible to decay, especially when they have areas that are harder to reach with a toothbrush. To lessen the chances of cavities developing, we recommend getting dental sealants.
What Are Dental Sealants?
A dental sealant acts as a shield that protects your tooth from bacteria, plaque, and tartar that would otherwise build up over time. You still need to brush and floss regularly, but these sealants will make your life a little bit easier. We often don’t even realize we’re missing certain spots until a cavity develops.
Application is very easy and will only take one short appointment. The dentist will clean the tooth of any plaque and apply an acidic gel. This will roughen the tooth’s surface. After that, we’ll rinse and dry it off before applying the sealant.
Are Dental Sealants Right for Me?
While sealants were often only used for children, anyone can take advantage of this preventative treatment. Many adults are seeing the incredible advantages. However, while the sealant is fairly transparent, most patients stick to placing them over their molars rather than their front teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Sealants?
- Easy application
- Durable and lasts for years
- Prevents cavities
- Saves you from spending money on fillings and restorations
