Protect Your Smile With Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are an essential preventive treatment for children, teens, and adults. At Green Grove Dental in St. Albert, we provide dental sealant treatments to our patients to preserve the health of their teeth and protect them from serious dental issues.
What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars. Because they are in liquid form when first applied, they seep into the crevices and fissures of the teeth. This tight seal prevents food particles, bacteria, and plaque build-up in those hard-to-reach areas. The procedure takes about five minutes per tooth and can be completed in a single appointment.
What are the benefits of dental sealants?
Dental sealants can reduce the risk of cavities, protect teeth from staining and discolouration, and help the teeth remain healthy over time. They are durable and easy to care for with regular brushing and flossing. Sealants are clear and virtually undetectable.
Who should consider getting dental sealants?
Anyone at an increased risk of developing cavities due to irregular brushing habits or poor oral hygiene should consider getting dental sealants. Children who may not yet have the dexterity to brush their back teeth properly, adults of any age who are prone to cavities or have mobility issues, and those with significant staining on the chewing surfaces of their teeth can all benefit from this procedure.
