The Basics of Dental Sealants

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Did you know there was a way to protect your teeth from tooth decay and harmful substances, like food particles and bacteria? Well, it’s true, and we are thrilled to tell you all about it!

Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are painted onto the surfaces of your teeth and hardened. They bond to the tooth and they fall in the depressions and grooves of your teeth, which makes them feel completely natural. These sealants shield tooth decay and other dental issues from touching your tooth. This is a great option for children and teenagers who are between the ages of 6 and 14, and it is also a great option for adults who have strong, healthy teeth that are not filled with tooth decay and dental fillings.
