When you come to the dentist for a regular cleaning, you might be worried by a common concern: do I have cavities? No one wants to hear that they are afflicted with tooth decay, no matter how minor. Thankfully there is a simple solution that can proactively protect healthy teeth and prevent the formation of cavities: dental sealants.
Dental sealants are a plastic material that is placed on the chewing surfaces of your teeth by a small brush. Once in place, they harden almost instantly and are incredibly effective at filling in all the tiny crevasses just like our other dental service called dental filling.
Dental sealants are common for younger patients, as they enable us to prevent cavity formation from a young age. Adults can get sealants as well, and they can quickly be applied during a normal cleaning.
If you are ready to take cavity prevention one step further with Dental Sealants, call our office today at 501-982-4447, or schedule an appointment using our online form.
