Protect Your Teeth with Sealants
Although your molars are not easy to see, they need to stay healthy in order for you to properly chew your food and even maintain the alignment of your smile. Since those teeth can be hard to reach with your toothbrush, our dentist, Dr. Emily Gardner, and team offer dental sealants in Sugar Land, Texas, to protect your back teeth from food debris and plaque. To schedule an appointment for sealants for your child or even for yourself, contact the team at Sugar Land Dental Wellness at (281) 201-6333.
Dental sealants are one of the many preventive treatments our team offers to help protect your teeth and stop harmful bacteria from causing damage to your smile. Though it is frequently recommended for younger children between the ages of 6 and 12, it can be a helpful treatment for patients of all ages whose teeth are prone to decay and who are looking to maintain their oral health and wellness.
During a dental sealant procedure, a member of our team will paint over the chewing surface of your tooth with a clear or tooth-colored resin material, blocking out food debris and decay-causing bacteria and thus preventing cavities from developing. This smooth coating also makes it easier to completely clean your teeth with regular brushing. The entire process can be completed in a single, simple visit to our practice.
Overall, dental sealants are a powerful tool for helping you and your loved ones avoid dental carries, prevent decay and keep your smile in beautiful shape. If you would like to learn more about this and other preventive treatments our dentist and team offer, we invite you to call our office today and schedule you consultation.
