If you want to avoid tooth decay and cavities, ask your dentist about getting dental sealants.
Dental sealants are an important part of your child’s preventative dental care, and can be part of yours as well. The sealant acts as a barrier that protects the biting surfaces of teeth from debris, bacteria, and acid.
Your dentist and dental hygienist can answer all your questions about the treatment and its procedure. However, it’s also important to be well informed as to how dental sealants could protect your smile for a lifetime
- Your teeth will be properly examined and cleaned
- The teeth will be completely dried so the sealant can easily adhere to the teeth surfaces
- Your dentist will place the sealant material on the biting surfaces of the teeth, and the sealant will be hardened by a special light
The procedure is typically quick and non-invasive. Though the treatment is usually recommended for children, dental sealants can be suitable for adults, too. Dental sealants can reduce the development of tooth decay by up to 90%!
