Recurrent cavities? Dental sealants may be the answer.

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.
