Are you interested in extra things you might be able to do in order to keep your teeth healthy? Are you interested in learning more about steps you can take to keep your children’s teeth healthy and strong? If you are, we recommend considering the benefits of a dental sealant? This important treatment is extremely useful because it can help patients fight off tooth decay.

Of course, even if you have a sealant placed, you should still remember to brush and floss your teeth every day. Sealants are actually made of a clear synthetic plastic material. You see, dental sealants are a thin, clear coating that’s applied to your teeth to help you fight off cavities and tooth decay.

You see, sealants are often used to treat your molars and your back teeth. Back teeth are usually pitted, which lets them harbor bad bacteria. This is natural, but can actually leave your molars more vulnerable to decay than other areas of your mouth since these bacteria can lead to tooth decay. Placing sealants can help protect your teeth from these bad bacteria, which in turn helps you avoid gum disease. If you care for your sealants well, they can last for years and effectively protect your teeth from cavities and tooth decay.

If you’re interested in learning more about dental sealants, we invite you to give Union Street Dental Care a call at 415-922-3886. Our dentist, Dr. Stanley Dintcho, will address any of your concerns and help you decide on the benefits of dental sealants. We look forward to receiving your call.
