When to consider dental sealants.
Sometimes brushing is not enough. Everyone has hard-to-reach spots in their mouth, and daily brushing doesn't always fully clean those difficult places. When that happens, you are at risk of tooth decay. Prime Dental Pasco specializes in protecting your teeth from decay using sealants to give you an extra line of defense.
What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are a plastic resin that bonds to the deep grooves in your tooth's chewing surface. When sealing a tooth, the grooves of your teeth are filled, and the tooth surface becomes smoother -- and less likely to have plaque build-up. With sealants, tooth brushing becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay.
Our team of dental professionals will recommend sealants on a case by case basis. Sealants generally last from three to five years. A dental sealant only provides protection when it is fully intact, so if your sealant comes off you must let your dentist know. Our dental team uses great care and skill to give you a smile that makes you feel your best and protect your teeth from decay!
