Let’s put a seal on cavities before they even form.
Dental sealants are thin protective coatings that are painted over your back teeth, or molars. Molars are hard to reach, difficult to clean and have grooves that sugar bugs love. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by literally “sealing out” plaque and food.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, sealants have been shown to reduce cavities by 86% in children alone! As such, we highly recommend sealants for young children and growing teens.
THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL SEALANTS AT TRADERS POINT DENTAL INCLUDE:
Preventing cavities from developing
Providing a smooth surface for better cleaning
Protecting teeth from plaque and tartar buildup
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Sealants are typically made of a resin material that is brushed into the grooves (also called “fissures”) of the patient’s molar teeth. A special light is used to bond the sealants into place, forming a sturdy and comfortable defense against the culprits that create cavities.
