Using dental sealants to protect the teeth
Preventative dentistry protects the smile from periodontal disease and tooth decay. These are the two most common and damaging conditions that affect the health of the teeth and gums. Dr. Neal Edwards and his team at Neal Edwards DDS in Riverside, California, educate both children and adults on the importance of taking care of the smile. This includes visiting the dentist for preventative services such as dental sealants.
What are dental sealants?
Dr. Neal Edwards describes the dental sealant as a protective coating for the teeth. It can be used to protect against cavities or help patients with sensitive teeth. It is easily applied during a routine appointment and can help keep the smile healthy.
The importance of dental sealants for adults and children
Dental sealants are a great way to help prevent cavities and other dental issues in both children and adults. They work by filling in the deep grooves on your teeth, creating an extra layer of protection that keeps out food particles and bacteria. Taking this extra step in protecting the teeth is a wise choice for patients of all ages.
Where are dental sealants applied?
Sealants are beneficial for preventing decay in molars, which have lots of nooks and crannies where plaque can form. And since they are easy to apply, sealants are an excellent choice for people who don’t like going to the dentist or those who find it difficult to properly brush their teeth. This includes both children and adults looking for a protective coating for the teeth to protect from cavities or reduce sensitive teeth.
