Tooth Sealant Before And AfterDental Sealants

Patients in need of dental sealants in Sunnyvale should give us a call. Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. They are applied to one or more teeth to prevent cavities or other forms of tooth decay, which are common with many individuals. The sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) in children where decay occurs most often.

Smile Protection

Molars are likely the teeth that are most going to benefit from having dental sealants applied. By bonding plastic resin to the grooves of a tooth, we can create a tooth surface that is smoother and easier to clean. This creates fewer locations on the chewing surface of the tooth that the bristles of a toothbrush can't access and clean. When properly placed on the teeth, a dental sealant can last from 5 to 10 years. They are a simple solution to prevent further decay. Since dental plaque can be removed more easily and effectively, there is much less of a chance that tooth decay will form. For better protection visit Tooth Spa for dental sealants.
