Cavities can develop at any age, which is why we offer dental sealants for all of your loved ones at LuxSmile Family Dentistry of Carrollton. Some people have a difficult time cleaning between the small and deep grooves of their molars, allowing harmful oral bacteria to accumulate and produce enamel-eroding acid that causes cavities to develop. Dr. Tammy Ton focuses on providing each of her patients with high-quality preventive dental care that helps them avoid severe issues down the road. That’s why our team may recommend dental sealants to protect vulnerable areas of your mouth, so you can keep your natural pearly whites healthy and happy for longer.
Whether you’re getting dental sealants for yourself or for your child, you’ll be relieved to know that the process is completely painless and fast. That way, you won’t have to worry about sitting in the treatment chair for an extended amount of time. We’ll brush the sealants over the chewing surface of your molars and harden them using a special ultraviolet light. Once they’re cured, they’ll act as small raincoats that shield the grooves of your teeth from collecting sugar and carbohydrates that attract bacteria.
The sealants are specially designed to protect the area by creating a strong and durable barrier that will last, even with regular wear-and-tear. They’re highly recommended for patients to prevent the formation of decay. Paired with a healthy diet and regular dental hygiene, they offer amazing results, so you can enjoy a healthier set of pearly whites for longer.
There are countless benefits to getting dental sealants as an adult or child. They’ll protect your smile and allow you to enjoy advantages such as:
Because of the higher likelihood of developing cavities in the grooves of their premolars and molars, dental sealants are often recommended as a preventive treatment for teenagers and children. However, adults who don’t have decay or fillings in their molars can continue to keep their mouths cavity-free by receiving this treatment. No matter who you are, a healthier smile is worth the investment.
During our patients’ checkups and cleanings, we often recommend preventive treatments to help protect their mouth so they can enjoy their beautiful pearly whites for longer.
