Sealants are thin, liquid resin coatings, that are applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars and premolars. These teeth have deep grooves and pits that can be difficult to clean making them more cavity prone. By filling in these crevices with sealants, you can protect your teeth from decay an maintain good oral health.
Here are some benefits of dental sealants:
Protect against cavitites: Sealants act as a barrier, protecting your teeth from the bacteria and acids that cause cavities. They seal out food particles and plaque, preventing them from getting trapped in the crevices of your teeth.
Save money: The cost of getting sealants is much less than the cost of treating a cavity. Sealants are a cost-effective way to protect your teeth and prevent future dental problems.
Easy and painless: Getting sealants is a quick and painless process. The teeth are cleaned and prepared, and the sealant is applied to the surface of the tooth. It hardens quickly and is ready to use immediately.
Can last for years: Sealants are suitable for both children and teenagers can last for up to 10 years with proper care. They are durable ad can withstand the pressure of chewing and biting.
Improve oral health: By preventing cavities, sealants can improve your overall health. You'll have fewer dental problems to worry about, and you can enjoy better dental health for years to come.
