What are Dental Sealants?
Brushing and flossing are the best ways to help prevent cavities, but it’s not always easy to clean every crevice of your teeth – especially the molars. Molars, also known as the teeth in the back of your mouth, are rough, uneven, and a favorite place for leftover food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide.
Still, there’s another alternative to help keep those teeth clean. A dental sealant is a thin, protective coating made from plastic or other dental materials that is applied to the top surface of your molars. They’re no substitute for brushing and flossing, but they may stop early stages of decay from becoming full-blown cavities.
According to the CDC, “School-age children without sealants have almost three times more cavities than children with sealants.”
How Do Sealants Work?
Think of sealants as raincoats for your teeth. When the cavity-causing bacteria that live in everyone’s mouths meet leftover food particles, they produce acids that can create holes in teeth called cavities. After your sealant has been applied, it keeps those bits of food out and prevents bacteria and acid from settling on your teeth — just like a raincoat keeps you clean and dry during a storm.
Dental Sealants Reviews
Love this place, I bring my 3 kids here, love the staff and doctors definitely recommend this place
My kids love coming here! The staff and the dentist are so welcoming and professional, we never leave unsatisfied!
My kids have been going to Bright Young Smiles since they opened. They've never been afraid to go to the dentist. Everyone in the office is so nice and efficient.
One of my children slipped and fell and knocked his teeth pretty bad on a Saturday. Our dentist at the time didn't have weekend hours and Bright Young Smiles had great reviews and Saturday hours, we called and they took him right away. That was about 3 years ago. We switched all of our children here and have been going here ever since. They are really good people. My kids are always so happy to go to the dentist. My wife has nothing but great things to say after ever visit.
My kids love the dentist and that is only because of Bright Young Smiles! They are excited for each and every visit. The staff goes above and beyond and we couldn’t be happier!
