Sealants are a dental solution that can be used to add an extra layer of defense to your smile. Our dentists, Dr. Rigsby, Dr. Kizirian and Dr. Sharpstein, generally recommend sealants to block out harmful plaque and food debris from areas that are the hardest to reach—typically your back teeth. At First Care Dental Assoc, we strive to help you maintain the strong, healthy smile you deserve. If you have any questions about the benefits of dental sealants in Tallahassee, Florida, please contact us today.
A sealant is a preventive dental treatment that our dentists may recommend to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth. By blocking out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant prevents decay and cavities. The dental sealant forms a smooth surface over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.
Dental sealants are most often recommended for children; our dentists frequently recommends sealants for the permanent molars as soon as they come in, which is usually between the ages of 6 and 12 years. We may also recommend dental sealants for adult patients whose teeth are prone to decay or for teeth that have not been restored or suffered from decay in the past. We can apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable visit to our practice. Sealants can be a powerful tool in preventing decay and keeping your smile healthy. To learn more about dental sealants and how we can keep your smile in good health, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.
