What Are Dental Sealants?
At our New Carlisle and Granville dental office, we offer both tooth-colored and clear sealants, depending upon their preference. Dental sealants are applied to the surface of your teeth, creating a seal that makes the brushing of teeth easier. The dental sealant in New Carlisle and Granville, OH, protects your teeth from bacteria, plaque, and decay that could otherwise get trapped in small crevices. Sealants can last up to several years, depending upon your dental hygiene and lifestyle choices.
Who Needs Teeth Sealants?
Most patients we see at Town & Country Dentistry near you, have grooves and pits on the chewing surfaces of their teeth; debris and bacteria can get trapped in these areas where a toothbrush cannot reach. The debris and bacteria can then cause decay and ultimately cavities. At your appointment, we can evaluate your teeth and discuss whether a dental sealant would benefit you.Patients with dental sealants applied to their teeth tend to have less plaque, cavities, and decay. In just a few minutes, you can help ensure you won’t end up needing fillings or other more invasive treatments down the road.
