What are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are thin films made out of plastic that are placed on molars to offer extra protection. Molars have many crevices that need additional coverage. By protecting the surface area of your back teeth you are reducing the risk of developing annoying cavities!
Most commonly, sealants are placed on permanent molars with kids and teens, because we usually see that kids are more prone to developing cavities, Dental sealants can also be suitable for adults who are prone to cavities. Once the teeth are clean, the liquid-like plastic is placed on the molar surface. The sealant drys and then hardens on the tooth. It only takes a few additional minutes after a routine cleaning. Our dentists at Spring Green Family Dental ensure that the procedure is convenient and painless.
If you or a loved one is prone to pesky cavities, dental sealants can be a perfect solution. They are effective, affordable, and pain-free. If you are in the Katy or Fulshear, Texas area, contact us to learn more about dental sealant options.
