An Easy Preventive Treatment Against Cavities
Even meticulous brushing may miss hard-to-reach areas of the back teeth. When bacteria linger and exposure to acids occurs, plaque will form. Once plaque hardens into tartar, it is not removable with ordinary brushing. Decay will set in and the tooth will need a filling or a crown for extensive damage. One application of a dental sealant will greatly reduce the risk of cavities forming.
This is the quick and easy procedure: Teeth are first cleaned and sterilized. A thin coating of the sealant is applied to the surface of each tooth. It is clear or white in color and does not change the tooth’s appearance. A curing light bonds the coating to the enamel. And the whole procedure is complete with just these few steps. There are no shots, tooth reduction, or drilling, and it is pain free.
We recommend this treatment to help children and adolescents maintain their natural teeth throughout their lives.
