The best way to seal out cavities

Posted on 4/25/2022 by Crossroads Family Dental
The best way to seal out cavitiesSealants have been around since the 1960s. Studies by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research and others led to the development of dental sealants and showed that they are safe and effective.

For people having problems with teeth cavities, we advise tooth sealants that are efficient and up to date. The orthodontist ensures our customers are left to satisfaction. Have already lost hope, don't, because there is a solution to all cavity issues. This lies across all ages that is both children and adults. Although thorough brushing and flossing can remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, they cannot always get into all nooks and crannies of the back teeth. Sealants will protect these vulnerable areas.

Why get sealants

The most important reason for getting sealants is to avoid tooth decay. Fluoride in toothpaste and drinking water protects the smooth surfaces of teeth but back teeth need extra protection. Sealants cover the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and keep out germs and food. Having sealants put on teeth before they decay will also save time and money in the long run by avoiding fillings, crowns, or caps use. Germs in the mouth use the sugar in food and drinks to make acids. Over time, the acids can make a cavity in the tooth. Of course, a healthy tooth is the best tooth. It is important to prevent decay. That's why sealants are so important to fix decayed teeth.

Sealants can last up to 10 years. But they need to be checked at regular dental check-ups to make sure they are not chipped or worn away. The dentist or dental hygienist can repair sealants by adding more sealant material.
