Sometimes, the deep crevices in the biting surface of your molars are difficult to clean, no matter how well you brush. In cases like these, we recommend dental sealants. This preventive treatment for children and adults helps prevent cavities by “sealing” the molars with a clear coating that prevents food particles and bacteria from hiding in the nooks and crannies of your teeth.
The process is fast and painless. After a cleaning, a clear solution is “painted” on to the chewing surface of your teeth then set with a special light. Once the sealants have hardened, you’re good to go. Your sealants will be checked at your regular dental checkups and will protect your teeth for years.
If you’re prone to cavities despite your best dental hygiene efforts, ask us about dental sealants. We love helping our Uvalde, Texas patients have strong, decay-free, and beautiful smiles.
