Dental sealants are a preventative form of treatment for tooth decay that help protect your teeth’s surface from harmful bacteria or plaque that builds up in your mouth. Dental sealants are a thin layer of coating placed on the chewing surface of your teeth.
Dental sealants produce the most effective results when placed during the first year of newly erupted teeth, so you should consider bringing your young ones to Woodlawn Dental to consult about dental sealants and the benefits for you or your child’s specific oral structure.
The procedure itself is straight-forward and generally pain-free. Some of the benefits include:
- Cavity reduction
- Minimal discomfort for long-lasting results
- Preventative against bacteria, decay, or plaque
- Reduces possibility of infections
