Sometimes your teeth still become decayed despite sufficient dental hygiene efforts and routine preventive treatments from your dentist. Many people can’t afford to have their cavities filled routinely, or don’t want to worry about needing treatment to remove tooth decay in the future. Tooth sealants are a perfect option for anyone who wants to add a protective barrier to the surfaces of their teeth to prevent decay.
What are Sealants?
Sealants are a thin layer of a fast-drying protective liquid which is applied to the surface of teeth to create a reliable seal to protect against tooth decay.
What are the Benefits of Sealants?
The clear benefit of sealants is that they are extremely effective in preventing tooth decay, which is especially good for small children who may not react well to treatments for tooth decay. Tooth sealants are also a great protective barrier to add to your teeth because they can last for years before a reapplication is necessary.
Imagine having an acrylic protective barrier painted onto your teeth which is guaranteed to protect them from both acidic foods and plaque which causes tooth decay. Talk to Smile Today about additional details and other ways you can benefit from tooth sealants.
