Sealants Prevent Cavities! General Dentistry in Decatur AL

Decatur Smiles Sealants Prevent Cavities For Decatur Kids

Dental sealants are a clear layer of plastic applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars. Application is quick and painless, and the sealants acts like a force field for the teeth. They’re a part of the general dentistry practiced at Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL.

Usually associated with children’s teeth, sealants are in fact good for people of all ages. They work by filling in the crevasses that brushing and flossing can’t reach, the places where food particles get caught, and breed harmful bacteria. They are especially effective in the back teeth, where most cavities occur.

The application process takes only one short visit at Decatur Smiles. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied. You’ll be able to eat right after the appointment.

Of course, even with sealants you’ll need to brush and floss regularly. Sealants, brushing and flossing, and twice-yearly dental visits are vital for dental health.
