Dental Sealants, Another Tool For Cavity Prevention

Dental Sealants - Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Jamestown

Regular brushing and flossing are essential for good dental health. But your toothbrush can’t reach into every small groove and depression in your teeth, especially the really bumpy back teeth. That’s where dental sealants from Crystal Dental Group in High Point can be invaluable.

Dental sealants are a plastic material that is applied the teeth. This material is a resin that bonds to the chewing surfaces, mainly in the pits and fissures. The plastic acts as a shield against acids and plaque that can damage the enamel.

We recommend sealants for our young patients, because they are so effective at protecting developing teeth. But they’re good for adults, too. If you are wondering if sealants are right for you, ask us during your next checkup.

Studies have showsn that dental sealants can prevent up to eighty percent of cavities in school-aged kids. As good as they are at protecting teeth, though, you’ll still need to brush and floss. Think of sealants as an added layer of protection that, with regular dental hygiene, can prevent tooth decay.

Whether it’s for you or your kids, ask us about dental sealants at your next checkup at Crystal Dental Group in High Point. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry, and pediatric dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today!
