If you’ve been looking for a way to prevent cavities, then you may want to consider getting dental sealants. Dental sealants are a form of preventive dental treatment that can protect your teeth from decay. Sealants prevent tooth decay by forming a protective barrier on the chewing surface of the tooth. This barrier blocks out the food particles and bacteria that cause tooth decay. Dental sealants also create a smoother surface over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth, making it easier to keep your teeth clean. New Richmond Wisconsin Dentist
Dentists typically recommend dental sealants for children as soon as their permanent back teeth come in. The back molars tend to be prone to decay, so dental sealants can help protect them. When getting dental sealants for your teeth, our dentists will first clean the tooth, then paint on the sealant. Sealants are made from a plastic resin, which will dry within minutes. Dental sealants can be applied in just one short visit.
We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about the benefits of dental sealants and to schedule your next visit!
