You know that brushing and flossing are important if you’re hoping to keep your teeth healthy, but do you ever wonder what else you might be able to do? Fortunately, there are a number of treatments you could consider, such as dental sealants. This useful treatment can help you and your little ones prevent cavities.
Of course, while sealants can protect your teeth, please don’t misunderstand: it’s still important for you to brush, floss, and visit our team regularly. Sealants are actually made of a synthetic plastic material. Generally, these sealants are clear. Of course, dental sealants are a coating that’s applied to the chewing surface of your teeth, which can keep your teeth safe from bad bacteria.
Oftentimes, sealants are used to protect your molars. You see, molars are actually pitted. In other words, they can harbor bad bacteria, which can cause bacteria. In other words, your molars are more vulnerable to decay than other parts of your mouth. If you have a sealant placed, you’ll be able to better protect your teeth from these bad bacteria. If your sealant is cared for properly, it may be able to last for years.
If you’d like to learn more about dental sealants, please don’t hesitate to call New Prague Gentle Dental Care at 952-758-3003. Our dentist, Dr. Gregory Dvorak, will be glad to address any concerns you may have and see if you could potentially benefit from dental sealants. We’re excited to hear from you soon.
