Sealants for your Teeth

Sealants For Your Teeth

Dental SealantsBrushing and flossing are the two best ways to help prevent cavities, however, there is a third thing you should do to keep your teeth clean. What is that? You should put sealants on your teeth. What are sealants? A sealant is a protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of your teeth and these are applied to your back teeth.

How do sealants work?

We all have cavity causing bacteria that lives in our mouth, this is from left over food particles that produce acids that eventually create holes in our teeth. We know these holes as cavities. When a sealant is applied it keeps these particles of food out and stops the bacteria and acid from settling on your teeth, thus causing the cavities.

Who can get sealants?

Both children and adults can get sealants. The earlier you get sealants on your teeth the better. Getting sealants on your teeth is a fast and painless process.
