Strohmeyer Dental is a leading dental practice that provides comprehensive and high-quality dental services to patients of all ages. One of the services we offer is dental sealants, a preventative treatment that helps protect against tooth decay and cavity formation in the grooves of your back teeth.
Dental sealants are a thin, clear or tooth-colored coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars, where cavities are most likely to develop. The dental sealant acts as a barrier, protecting the teeth from plaque, food particles, and other harmful substances that can cause decay. The dental sealant is made of a biocompatible material that bonds to the teeth, creating a seamless and protective shield.
Dental sealants are an excellent choice for children and teenagers, as they are most susceptible to cavities due to their developing teeth and still-forming good oral hygiene habits. In fact, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children receive dental sealants as soon as their permanent molars come in, typically between the ages of 6 and 14. Dental sealants can also be beneficial for adults, especially those who are prone to cavities or have deep grooves in their molars.
At Strohmeyer Dental, we use the latest technology and techniques to provide dental sealant services to our patients. Our team of dental professionals will first clean and dry the teeth to be sealed, and then apply an acidic solution to the chewing surfaces to create a rough surface for the dental sealant to bond to. Next, the dental sealant material is painted onto the teeth and cured using a special light. The entire process is quick, painless, and requires no anesthesia.
One of the benefits of dental sealants is that they can last for up to 10 years with proper care and regular dental check-ups. This means that patients who receive dental sealants at Strohmeyer Dental can enjoy a longer period of protection against tooth decay and cavities. Dental sealants are also a cost-effective option for patients who are looking for a preventative treatment that can help save money in the long run by reducing the need for more extensive and expensive dental treatments.
At Strohmeyer Dental, we believe in the importance of preventative care and are committed to helping our patients maintain good oral health. In addition to dental sealants, we offer a wide range of other preventative treatments, including fluoride treatments, regular cleanings and exams, and oral cancer screenings. Our team of dental professionals will work with you to develop a personalized plan that meets your individual needs and goals.
In conclusion, dental sealants are a highly effective and cost-efficient way to protect against tooth decay and cavity formation.
