All About the Facts of Dental Sealants

Posted .

Are you interested in having a top-notch smile? If so, dental sealants are your friend. Dental sealants can help your teeth in many ways. This is why your dentist, Dr. Adam Vitelli, encourages you to use dental sealants. To help you understand why and to help you know more about this dental product, he is happy to share some dental sealant facts with you. Those facts are:

-Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The sealants create a barrier that protect the teeth.

-Dental sealants can help you avoid enamel erosion and cavities.

-Dental sealants are most often used to protect the back teeth because those teeth are the toughest to clean. The sealants will cover the teeth and keep them healthy and strong even though they are frequently exposed to food particles and bacteria.

-Only one appointment is required to place the sealants. In fact, your dentist is able to provide the sealants quickly during your routine dental cleaning and exam appointment.

-You shouldn’t feel nervous or anxious about dental sealant placement. The treatment is simple and easy, so much that it doesn’t even require the use of a local anesthetic.
