Now is the best time to begin your oral health care quest for a complete smile makeover. With the coming of the new year can be a coming of a beautiful smile to match. The best way to keep your smile in its best condition is to employ prevention methods to ensure future damage does not occur. A highly effective treatment to consider is dental sealants, which are safe and effective options to coat teeth for added protection.
Dental sealants are highly effective and go on clear. Due to their design, they can be painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth and allow the natural color of your teeth to shine through. They’re usually most effective on your premolars and molars, which are in the back of your mouth and can be applied as young as 6 or whenever your first molars grow in. Once your first molar does go in, dental sealants applied to the tooth can effectively last for 10 years before a replacement may be needed.
Dental sealants provide enamel protection against harmful acids and bacteria that cause dental erosion. According to the Center for Disease Control, a child’s tooth that has a dental sealant in place is 3 times less likely to develop cavities. Due to the drastic decrease, dental sealants are highly recommended for your oral health care.
