Did you know that the chewing surfaces of your teeth aren’t actually flat? In order to properly grind and chew food, there are depressions, pits, and crevasses on your teeth. While this can be helpful for proper eating, it isn’t so helpful when it comes to cleaning your smile. These areas on your teeth are often too small for bristles to get into but large enough to harbor bacteria and plaque. With dental sealants, we can create a protective barrier on the surfaces of your teeth, protecting them from debris, bacteria, and decay while also making dental hygiene easier.
Although it may seem pointless to protect teeth that are just going to fall out, it can actually be highly important! Baby teeth are actually more susceptible to decay which can affect the health of your child’s permanent teeth down the road. Teeth that fall out too early may also affect the placement of permanent teeth.
Teenagers can also benefit from dental sealants, as their new, permanent teeth erupt, dental sealants can be applied to prevent any future decay.
Wondering if dental sealants can also be beneficial for adults? They can! It is important to have additional protection for your teeth, regardless of your age. Dental sealants can help prevent decay and costly treatments.
