We are open and taking all safety precautions as recommended by the CDC and ADA
Cavities are one of the most common issues our dentists here at Pleasure Dental treat every single day. The damage caused by this tooth decay is permanent and can potentially lead to more complicated oral health problems later in life if not treated properly.
To avoid such issues, we like to work with our patients to proactively prevent the formation of cavities. Of course, this can be done at home with a high standard of oral hygiene—including brushing well at least twice a day and after eating and flossing daily. Good habits at home, combined with regular visits to our office in Royse City for checkups and cleanings, are the first basic steps to take in cavity prevention.
However, did you know that dental sealants are another highly effective method of protecting the teeth from tooth decay?
Dental sealants are basically a protective coating that’s applied to the teeth to create a barrier that prevents cavity-causing bacteria from attacking. The thin coating is created from orally safe materials that are highly resistant to plaque and bacteria.
Dental sealants are usually applied to the teeth in the back of the mouth—the molars—which tend to collect food particles and debris on the chewing surface. By thoroughly coating all the little nooks and crannies of these teeth with dental sealants, acid, plaque, and other kinds of bacteria don’t stand a chance.
The procedure is non-invasive and completely painless. Not to mention, it’s very a very affordable method of tooth decay prevention. Dental sealants can last for up to 10 years but will need to be replaced after that.
This conservative, affordable treatment is appropriate for all patients who are at risk for developing cavities. However, it’s an excellent option for school-age children who are more likely to develop tooth decay. Even the Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggests that all children should have dental sealants applied.
Our team is passionate about you and your child’s oral health. To see if dental sealants are the right option, give us a call to schedule an appointment today.
