Dental Sealants in Westwood Dental Smiles, CA
To protect your teeth from decay, ask your professionals at Westwood Dental Smiles about what are dental sealants.
A sealant is a thin resin material applied on the grooves or fissures of teeth. The procedure is quick, painless and helps you enjoy cavity-free teeth for long periods in life.
This tooth-colored coating is usually applied on the back teeth (molars and premolars) to cover the biting surfaces. Sealants quickly bond to the teeth to “seal” them and stop food particles, acids and plaque from entering the tooth grooves. Teeth sealants are recommended for protecting teeth that are harder to reach when brushing and flossing.
Adults without cavities or decay can benefit from dental sealants. They can help protect teeth and maintain excellent dental health and avoid future dental services and diseases. For children and teenagers between age 6 to 14 (the cavity prone years), Dr. Anderkvist recommends sealants to shield the premolars and molars.
Sealants can protect your teeth for years with normal chewing. Regular dental appointments are enough to check if it’s still properly covering your teeth or if a replacement is needed.
