Dental sealants are an excellent way to prevent decay on the surface of your primary chewing teeth. A sealant may be recommended by your Smiley Dental Dentist in or around Lowell, Dracut, Methuen, Tyngsborough, Pelham, Lawrence, Boston, Mattapan, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Milton, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, Acushnet, Rochester, Marion. It involves a simple coating being “painted” on the tooth surface. The sealant protects the enamel of the teeth from acids and plaque, and goes into the deep grooves as an effective barrier, especially for places that cannot be reached by flossing and are difficult to reach with brushing.
Dental sealants are easy to apply at your Smiley Dental dentist’s office, and quick. Just a few minutes per tooth are required. Dental sealants last several years before needing to be reapplied.
Whether for adults or children, dental sealants can be a great barrier against tooth decay. If you are interested in dental sealants to protect your teeth, call your Smiley Dental dentist today for a convenient appointment time.
