Protecting Against Decay and Cavities
With so many pits, fissures, and grooves in your molars and other teeth, it can be difficult to prevent against cavities and decay, even with proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings. At James Bieneman, DDS, we understand that a preventative approach to oral health is superior to a reactionary approach. And as such, we offer dental sealants for teeth to ensure that you’re protected against cavities at all times.
What are Sealants on Teeth?
Sealants are thin resin layers that are designed to prevent decay on the pits, fissures, and grooves on all of your teeth’s surfaces.
This is particularly important after critical teeth such as molars have emerged as the treatment can prevent cavities during critical years of development.
Reducing the Chance of Decay at a Critical Age
Although sealants are primarily used as a preventative measure for children and teenagers, it’s common for adults to use the treatment to protect critical areas of their mouths as well.
The treatment is simple and quick to apply as well, In fact, it’s simply painted on the tooth enamel where it will harden and bond to teeth.
