Protect Your Teeth With Dental Sealants
Dental sealants can be a great way to protect your teeth from cavities and decay. At Aylmer Family Dental in Aylmer, we offer dental sealants to help keep your teeth healthy and strong.
How are dental sealants applied?
During the procedure, our dentist will clean and dry the surface of the molars and premolars that are most vulnerable to cavities. A thin coat of the sealant material is applied by brush to the grooves and pits of your teeth. The sealant is quickly hardened with a curing light, forming a protective barrier against bacteria that cause tooth decay.
What are the benefits of dental sealants?
Dental sealants can help protect your teeth from cavities and decay for up to ten years. Sealants can also help reduce the need for more invasive treatments, such as fillings and root canals, by preventing decay from taking hold. Application of the sealants is quick and painless and can be completed in one visit.
Who is a good candidate for dental sealants?
Dental sealants are recommended for children and young adults to protect their molars, where cavities are most likely to form. However, sealants can also benefit adults with deep grooves or pits in their teeth, putting them at risk for cavities and tooth decay. Adults with cognitive issues or those who are lax in their oral homecare routine can also benefit from dental sealants.
Along with regular checkups with our dentist, dental sealants may be a great option to protect your teeth from cavities. Contact Aylmer Family Dental today to learn more about getting dental sealants and enjoy a healthy smile!
