At Artistic Touch Dentistry, we offer dental sealants to help ward off the presence of cavities. Some people are more prone to cavities than others and dental sealants could help form a barrier to fend off tooth decay.
Sealants prevent decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. Applying the sealant is a simple and painless procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. The acrylic keeps harmful bacteria from entering deep grooves of the teeth and acts as a barrier to protect enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants are safe for both children and adults and can be “painted on” to each tooth within a matter of minutes. If you have questions about the effectiveness of sealants, contact Dr. Maryam Brazdo today.
