Smile Workshop is a family dental office that helps families achieve better dental health. Our dental practice is a full-service dentistry that can help your family with any dental need. We have dentists, orthodontist, oral surgeons, pedodontists and endodontists at all of our locations. Are you doing everything you can to protect your family’s teeth? Dental sealants from Smile Workshop can help you keep your smile healthy.
Dental sealants are clear, plastic coatings that are placed on the top of premolars and molars (the teeth in the back of the mouth). Sealants are applied to teeth to prevent cavities from forming in areas that your toothbrush has trouble getting to.
The process of applying a sealant to a tooth is similar to painting. Each molar and premolar gets a coating of special resin-like material. This clear material hardens and bonds to the grooves of your teeth. Dental sealants significantly reduce the chance of tooth decay and cavities from forming.
Dental sealants can last for several years. Smile Workshop’s dentists check up on the condition of patients’ sealants every time they come in for a dental cleaning. The best way to extend the life of your sealants and to ensure your family’s mouths are healthy is to practice positive dental routines. Make sure your children brush their teeth twice a day, floss every night and rinse their mouth out with an ADA approved mouthwash.
When was the last time your family visited a dentist? Every member of your family should come to Smile Workshop for dental cleanings at least twice a year. Call your local Smile Workshop to book a dental appointment today. During your appointment, talk with your dentist about the benefits of dental sealants.
