Your smile is your greatest gift! Protect your teeth in 2015 with sealants. Dental sealants are a simple procedure where a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids. We want you to wrap your greatest gift with sealants this season!
Some individuals are genetically predisposed to deep grooves in the teeth that brushing and flossing can’t reach. Dental sealants protect these areas and “seal out” plaque and food. These cavity-prone individuals are then able to move forward with brushing and flossing more effectively. Sealants can last several years before needing to be repainted on.
In addition to sealants, you can maintain good oral hygiene by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day with an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste
- Flossing twice a day
- Eating a balanced diet and limiting snacks
- Visiting Dr. Shields twice annually
