Fortify Your Smile With Dental Sealants
At Dripping Springs Family Dentistry in Dripping Springs, we proudly offer dental sealants to help our patients protect their teeth from cavities and decay.
What are dental sealants, and how are they applied?
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. Providing a layer of durable protection against acids and bacteria, after teeth have been cleaned, we apply an acidic solution to help sealants adhere to their surface. Next, a dental adhesive is used to bond the sealant to the enamel and a curing light is used to seal the material in place.
What are the benefits of dental sealants?
Dental sealants help fill grooves and pits in molars and premolars, protecting these cavity-prone teeth from damage. This reduces the need for restorative treatments like fillings or crowns and helps minimize a patient’s risk for gum disease and other oral health issues.
Who should consider dental sealants?
Dental sealants are especially beneficial for children and teens who may not brush and floss as well or as often as they should. They can also be an option for adults who have not had restorative work performed on their molars and premolars.
