Seal and Protect Dental
We can seal teeth to protect them against decay or relieve tooth pain caused by cold sensitivity. These simple, effective procedures offer many benefits to children and adults.
At Metro Smiles P.C. we can seal teeth with a thin varnish designed to protect tooth areas both mechanically and by way of an antimicrobial agent. Sealants can also be placed into the grooves and depressions of the molars and premolars and on root recession areas of teeth. Our Seal ‘n’ Protect dental service is recommended for anyone who experiences sensitivity and/or exposure to roots caused by gum recession and is easily applied at your hygiene visit.
Why It’s Important to Protect Teeth
Sealants are most commonly used for children and teenage patients. It’s relatively easy to get food particles and plaque off smooth surfaces. However, you can’t always remove everything that gets into the grooves of the back teeth. Dental sealants help to protect these areas. When we protect teeth, we apply a coat that shields the enamel from bacteria and acids. The sealant bonds in seconds and it can protect the teeth from future decay and hypersensitivity.
What are Sealants For Tooth Sensitivity Pros and Cons?
If you’re considering this procedure, you may be searching online for “sealants for tooth sensitivity pros and cons”. The benefits of dental sealants are clear. This treatment helps prevent cavities and ensures your teeth are less sensitive. Dental sealants are safe, painless, and well-tolerated by most patients. It helps maintain improved hygiene and compliments other services relating to cosmetic dentistry.
Is It Really Important to Seal Teeth? What Are the Benefits?
You may be wondering if it’s really necessary to seal teeth or what are the actual benefits. For example:
- It prevents food and plaque from accumulating in the deep grooves of the teeth.
- It offers protection against cavities and hypersensitivity.
- It helps delay the formation of cavities in children and teens.
- It offers protection when the saliva loses its protective qualities due to age or medication eroding dentin and causing sensitivity in adults.
The process of having sealants applied is quite simple. First, the dentist or hygienist polishes the tooth to ensure plaque and food particles are removed. Next, the tooth is then etched and the sealant or varnish is applied. A curing light is then used to bond the sealant to the tooth. Several coats of varnish may be applied to relieve symptoms.
