Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants in Houston, TX

Brushing and flossing are excellent habits to prevent tooth decay and cavities, but did you know the added protection of a tooth sealant is also recommended by many world health organizations for maximum preventive dental care?

If you’re not familiar with dental sealants in East Little York or dental sealants on Highway 6, we hope you find the following information beneficial enough to make an appointment for the added smile protection today.

Tooth Sealant

An Easy and Pain-Free Procedure

Having sealants applied is a fast and easy procedure. First, the teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and dried. A liquid solution will then be applied on the occlusal (chewing) surfaces of the teeth and cured using a special light. The teeth can be used as normal about half an hour after the procedure.

The result of the sealants acts as a barrier between the teeth and food debris, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids. Reapplication may be needed, but sealants can last several years. When you visit our dentist for your routine preventive dental appointments, such as professional teeth cleaning, we’ll assess that your sealants are still effective in providing maximum protection.

Good Oral Hygiene is Still Key in Cavity Protection

Although sealants are commonly used on children in the cavity-prone years of six to 14, adults without decay or fillings can also benefit from this treatment. It should be noted that sealants are not a substitute for brushing teeth. Excellent oral hygiene practices of brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings should still be maintained.
