We may recommend Dental Sealants to help prevent cavities:
How Sealants Work. Plastic dental sealant material is painted on the chewing surface of the tooth to seal tiny grooves and help prevent decay-causing bacteria from penetrating the enamel. The material is hardened using a special light – no drilling or numbing required! The sealant helps to smooth the rough surface of the tooth, making it easier to keep clean.
Sealants have become the cornerstone of a preventive plan for protecting childrens' teeth, and can last for years. Adults may also benefit from having sealants placed on healthy teeth surfaces to improve resistance to destructive bacteria.
We will check your sealants at your regular checkup appointments, and can re-apply the sealant material if necessary.
Prevention is the key to long term dental health - be sure to ask about Dental Sealants at your next visit!
