Our teeth, especially our molars and pre-molars, are prone to gathering plaque and food particles. And, no matter how thoroughly you brush and floss, there are times when you just cannot get it all. When food and plaque settles into these crevices, it attracts bacteria, and that bacteria slowly begins the process of breaking the tooth down and producing cavities.
That is why BGW Dental Group offers sealant treatment, which can help our patients block food and plaque buildup and ensure healthier teeth.
Made of thin plastic, sealants are thin coverings that can be quickly and easily applied by our staff to a whole range of patients from ages 3 to 103. Sealants may prove particularly helpful in safeguarding cavity-prone pre-molars in children and teenagers. They are also helpful in protecting permanent molars in adults. And even babies have use for sealants if they are prone to cavities or have teeth that feature deep grooves or depressions.
Sealants are easily applied directly to teeth in a matter of minutes and can last for many years. Dentists may also easily replace them during routine exams.
If you are interested in utilizing sealants to help protect your smile, please contact us today at 678-582-8099.
