Have you ever wished you could have extra protection for your teeth that didn’t require a ton of work on your part?
Do you struggle with tooth decay and gingivitis, no matter how much you brush and floss?
Does your child (or teenager) avoid brushing their teeth as much as possible because they don’t understand how wonderful it is to have a healthy smile?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you or your child is the perfect candidate for dental sealants, now available at our office, Amador Dentistry, in Pompano Beach, FL.
Dental sealants are thin layers of plastic applied to the back molars. The plastic is painted onto the surface as a liquid so it can seep into all of the small nooks and crannies of the tooth’s natural cusp. After a few minutes, it hardens, resulting in a defensive layer that stops plaque from touching significant dental enamel.
Dental sealants are recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) for children between the ages of 6 and 14. At this stage in life, children are responsible for brushing their own teeth but often avoid doing so, resulting in cavities, infections, and even permanent tooth loss. Sealants add extra protection so you can stop worrying.
Sealants can also be used by adults who have naturally weak teeth or who have struggled with maintaining proper oral hygiene throughout their lives. Our dentist will be glad to make the application after a basic exam and cleaning.
Dental sealants are designed to last up to 10 years, depending on how well they are cared for. We recommend recipients brush their teeth softly to avoid tearing up the plastic and avoid eating too much sugar or acid. Our dentist can do touch-ups when needed to replace missing sealant.
If you are in or around Pompano Beach, FL, and are seeking dental sealants, consider scheduling an appointment with Amador Dentistry today. We use the latest techniques and technology and are glad to offer this preventive treatment to our patients.
