Restoring Your Smile with Dental Sealants

Posted .

Numerous holidays are finally at our doorstep. With the coming of so many sensational holidays, it is important to make sure your oral health remains in good standing. This includes effective oral hygiene treatments and cavity prevention plans. We proudly offer dental sealants treatments to help protect your teeth for many years to come.

Dental sealants are highly effective teeth restorations that work by applying a thin coating to the chewing surfaces of your teeth, characteristically the back teeth. Once applied, they can work as a secondary barrier on your tooth enamel to help prevent tooth decay. They go on clear and will not change the look of your teeth. Furthermore, they can resist acids that your tooth enamel cannot.

A single application of dental sealant treatments can lower your risk for tooth decay by as much as 80%. Children with dental sealants are three times less likely to develop tooth decay and cavities. Even children as young as six can have dental sealants safely applied to their molars for effective dental erosion protection. To help keep you and your child’s smiles safe this holiday season, consider a dental sealant application.

No matter which tooth restoration treatments you require, Dr. Mark Andrews and our team at Mark Andrews, D.D.S. will make sure that your teeth and gums are properly treated.
