Dental sealants are provided at Main Street Dentistry to patients looking for added protection against dental caries and decay. It is often recommended for children, but it is appropriate and beneficial for people of all ages. Dental sealants are proven to help children maintain their oral health and are usually applied to the molars once they erupt. Adults that may be prone to dental decay, though, will also benefit from dental sealants in Vancouver, Washington. Regardless of age, patients can receive dental sealants from Dr. Brian Mahoney and his team in one quick, comfortable visit.
Dental sealants are made of a clear, resin material. They are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They seal the tooth creating a coating that blocks out bacteria, food debris, cavities and other substances that could lead to tooth decay. Sealants may also smooth the surface of the tooth, making brushing easier and more effective.
