At Smile Square, we believe preventive dental care is an important part of optimal oral health. For this reason, we offer both tooth-colored and clear dental sealants in Lake Jackson. Our dental sealants can be used to protect the chewing surfaces of teeth, prevent dental decay and make your at-home dental care easier and more effective.
Recommendations for Dental Sealants
Due to the fact that children are more susceptible to decay and cavities, dental sealants are most often recommended for pediatric patients. Due to depressions, pits and grooves, debris, bacteria and even plaque can get trapped in hard to reach areas. When our dental sealants in Lake Jackson are applied, a barrier is formed protecting the teeth from bacteria and plaque while making it easier to properly clean teeth.
While our Lake Jackson dental sealants are often recommended for children, they can also be beneficial for teenagers and even adults who want added protection against decay.
Lake Jackson Dental Sealant Application
The procedure for receiving dental sealants is extremely quick, comfortable and painless. Your dentist will paint the clear or tooth-colored sealant on the chewing surfaces of teeth, once it has hardened your teeth are protected with a barrier.
Maintaining Your Dental Sealants in Lake Jackson
While dental sealants are in good condition, there is no way for harmful bacteria, acid, and plaque to reach the teeth. With proper dental care and good lifestyle choices, dental sealants can last for many years, during each visit your dentist can check them to ensure you are still protected.
