You are a teeth brushing champion. You floss EVERY SINGLE DAY without fail. You use a fluoride mouthwash. You go to your dentist every six months. So why are you still getting cavities? The truth is, even those who are diligent about dental health are vulnerable to tooth decay. Why? The deep grooves and crevices on the chewing surface of your molars are notoriously hard to clean; bacteria and food particles get stuck despite your best tooth brushing efforts. The longer these rest on your teeth, the greater your chances of getting a cavity. At Dental Care of Boca Raton, we’ve got the perfect solution for this very problem: dental sealants.
What Are Dental Sealants?
Dental Sealants do exactly what their name implies — seal your teeth. This simple procedure is completed in our office and only requires a single visit. Once your teeth have been cleaned and polished, we simply paint a layer of protective tooth-colored resin over those deep cracks and crevices. We then cure the resin with light and send you on your way with a newly protected smile. The procedure is quick, painless, and provides unparalleled protection against cavities.
Should I Get Them?
Yes! Prevention is less expensive, less time-consuming, and less painful than treating decay and disease. Sealants provide a smooth, yet completely functional chewing surface on your molars that vastly reduces your chances of getting cavities. The protective resin is bonded directly to the surface of your tooth and will last for years to come, giving you the added assurance that your smile will remain free of tooth decay.
If you live in or near Boca Raton, Florida, we would love to help you protect your beautiful teeth with sealants. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment. We can’t wait to see your smile!
