Safeguard Your Smile With Dental Sealants
At Palm City Dental Arts in Palm City, we know that dental sealants help protect teeth from decay and cavities. By providing a protective shield against bacteria and plaque, this preventive treatment can help keep your smile looking and feeling great for many years!
What are dental sealants made from and how are they applied?
Dental sealants are made from a resin material that is applied directly to the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars teeth. Our dentist will brush sealant onto these teeth and use a special light to dry and harden the resin in place, creating a barrier that protects against decay-causing bacteria.
What are the main benefits of dental sealants?
Dental sealants offer many benefits, including:
- They can reduce the risk of developing cavities and tooth decay significantly.
- They provide a safe, non-invasive way to protect your teeth from decay.
- Sealants are quick and easy to apply and require no anesthesia or drilling.
- The procedure is painless and helps keep your oral health in check.
- They can provide protection for up to 10 years with diligent care.
Who is a candidate for dental sealants?
Dental sealants are typically recommended for children and young adults, but they can also be beneficial for adults with deep grooves or fissures on the surfaces of their molars and premolars. As with all dental treatments and procedures you’re considering, it’s important to discuss options with our dentist to determine if sealants are the best choice for you.
How should dental sealants be cared for?
It’s important to brush twice and floss once daily and to avoid hard foods that could chip the sealants.
