What are Dental Sealants used for?
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids. Contact Somerdale Family Dental for more information.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.
How often do they need to be replaced?
Easy to apply, dental sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us at Somerdale Office Phone Number 856-783-3499, or request an appointment online.
