Cavities can be a pain – both literally and figuratively. You start to feel some discomfort coming from one of your teeth, and thoughts flood into your mind of having to take time out of your busy schedule to get a filling. But what if there was a protective barrier that could help prevent them? Well, you’re in luck!
As the name suggests, sealants create a seal around the tooth, shielding it from bacteria and food particles. While brushing and flossing regularly is the most effective way to safeguard your smile, sometimes we need a little extra help.
We often get cavities in the dark and hard-to-reach areas of our smiles. You might think you’ve carefully brushing every tooth, but you could be missing a spot or two without even realizing it. While patients who get sealants are often children, this preventative treatment is perfect for people of all ages.
The great thing about sealants is that they’re super easy to apply. The dentist will first clean and dry the tooth before applying an acidic gel over it. Once the tooth’s surface is rough, we’ll rinse the gel off, dry the tooth again, and apply the sealant.
Keep your smile in tip-top condition by coming in for a sealant application appointment. Contact our friendly team today so we can get started.
