Dental sealants are one of the most common and effective ways of preventing cavities. Are you interested in learning more?
What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are made from a safe, plastic material. They are applied to the chewing area of teeth that most often experience decay and cavities like the molars and premolars.
How do dentists apply dental sealants?
At Smile Workshop, our dentists apply dental sealants directly on the tooth enamel (very similar to painting). After the sealant has been applied it quickly hardens.
Who should get dental sealants?
Dental sealants are used primarily as a shield to prevent cavities. Patients with permanent teeth are typically eligible to get sealants.
Staying up-to-date on your dental exam and cleaning are essential to maintaining positive oral health. When paired with daily brushing and flossing, it’s the easiest way to ensure that your children grow up with beautiful smiles.
