At Arbor View Dental, we have an incredible product that can protect your teeth from decay and the incidence of cavities will drop dramatically. In fact, we are increasingly noting children who never experience a cavity. This product is called dental sealants and they will significantly contribute to the health of your teeth.
What are dental sealants?
Sealants are a plastic material that Dr. Matz paints onto the back teeth, where cavities occur most often, they are a liquid which then dries hard. Next to daily brushing, dental sealants are the most pro-active preventative treatment in dental care. The process of receiving sealants is a painless procedure, is does not involve drilling and it does not cause discomfort in applying.
We recommend dental sealants for:
All patients under the age of 18.
Patients who have grooves that allow food debris to collect and is easily missed in cleaning.
Patients who suffer from continuous decay issues.
Get sealants for your teeth
Dental sealants are a strong and durable material that should last you several years. At your regularly scheduled checkups, Dr. Matz will ensure the status of your sealants. This procedure should be part of your preventative care but they do not replace the need for regular brushing and flossing.
