Keep your teeth free from decay, by getting dental sealants in Houston, Texas. If you are looking for a safe way to protect your teeth, our dentists and team may recommend that you get this quick preventive treatment at Serenity Dental.
A sealant is made of clear or tooth-colored resin material. That material is then painted onto the chewing surface of the teeth, making a smooth coating over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface. By blocking bacteria and food debris, the sealant can effectively protect the tooth and help in preventing the development of cavities. Additionally, because the sealant creates a smoother tooth surface, it makes brushing and cleaning of the teeth more effective on a daily basis.
Typically, dental sealants are used for children. Dr. Jeffrey Chung and associates aim to place the sealants on the permanent molars as soon as they grow in (between ages 6 and 12). While dental sealants are usually placed on children’s teeth, our team may recommend this treatment for adults whose teeth are prone to decay.
Dental sealants can be placed in just one appointment with our team, typically during one of your routine dental appointments. If you are interested in learning more, schedule an appointment with our team at 832-301-8433.
