Do you wonder if you are cleaning all of the areas of your mouth as directed? If so, you are not alone. Many patients struggle to brush, floss, and rinse their back teeth which may be hard to reach. Fortunately, there is a solution to this common problem.
At Blissful Dental Spa, we recommend sealants to give your teeth additional protection for the areas you may not be able to reach with a toothbrush and toothpaste or floss. To learn more about dental sealants near you, call Dr. Chinara Garraway today.
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the teeth’s chewing surfaces, including the tops of your bottom molars and bottoms of your top molars. Sealants stop pieces of food and bacteria from reaching your teeth and causing cavities.
At Blissful Dental Spa, we use an acidic gel on your teeth to roughen the surface. Then, the gel rinses off, and your teeth are dried. The sealant material is painted onto your molars. We will use a blue light to harden the sealant material.
Getting sealants is quick, easy, and painless. The procedure doesn’t take long and is essential in keeping your teeth healthy.
Our dentist in Tallahassee, FL often recommends sealants to children, but patients of all ages have seen significant benefits with them. There is no upper age limit for sealants. Talk to our dentist if you think you might be a good candidate.
Sealants are an excellent option for children who may not brush their teeth as directed. Children often have cavities, so sealants are a great preventive option to control them before they occur.
A quick talk with our dentist will help you know whether you should get sealants for yourself or your child. Simply let us know that you are interested.
