We’ve been in this line of work long enough to know that “prevention is worth a pound of care,” as Ben Franklin once said. Routine checkups and cleanings along with adequate at-home hygiene care are essential. But another form of protection is available, and it’s known as dental sealants.
Get The 411 On Dental Sealants
You may have heard of them before… or not. Either way, we’ll give you goods. Dental sealants are a thin liquid plastic coating that your dentist attaches to a tooth’s chewing surface. They are routinely used on molars and premolars located at the back of the mouth. That’s because it can be challenging to get in between those teeth and thoroughly clean and remove all the bacteria responsible for decay. According to the CDC, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for two years and keep safeguarding teeth against 50% of cavities for up to four years.
Some people, especially kids and the elderly, find it harder to get into those hard-to-reach places. And toothbrushes can’t always reach the bottom of a groove in a tooth to clean it. For them, sealants are something we often highly recommend.
What’s great about the treatment process? Sealants are applied like paint. It’s quick, easy, and 100% painless. They also are…
- less expensive than fillings
- attractive (designed to match natural teeth).
