Dental sealants can prevent tooth decay and reduce enamel wear. Tooth decay occurs when bacteria from food get into the gaps between teeth, and the acid erodes tooth enamel, eventually leading to tooth decay. You can prevent your teeth from becoming vulnerable to decay by opting for dental sealant treatments.
Feel free to ask our experts for information and advice on how dental sealants can help your teeth; our staff will explain the benefits, procedures, and costs in detail.
Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are carefully applied on the biting surfaces of teeth. Once they settle into the grooves, they form a protective shield over the enamel and guard against decay.
Although brushing and flossing help remove food particles from our teeth, they cannot clean away all the particles. Our experts apply a dental sealant to protect vulnerable nooks and crannies from getting exposed to bacteria and acid.
Since premolars and molars are more prone to decay, children are ideal candidates who benefit from dental sealants. However, adults without fillings in their molars can also benefit from the use of dental sealants.
