With the coming of Halloween and the numerous holidays to come afterward, it is important to take the time now to prepare your teeth for the onslaught of sugars and tooth-damaging substances coming your way. For additional help with your oral health care, consider dental sealants.

Dental sealants are highly effective tooth restorations that can be used on adults and children alike. They are safe and effective and can easily protect your teeth against the damages caused by tooth decay and cavities. Dental sealants are applied using a thin coating that is placed atop the chewing surfaces of teeth, especially the back teeth such as the premolars and molars, to help prevent decay. They go on clear and will not change the look of your smile.

Dental sealants have been proven effective for preventing cavities. According to numerous studies, you can lower your risk of tooth decay by as much as 80% with the application of dental sealants atop your molars. Furthermore, children as young as six can be three times less likely to develop tooth decay when they have dental sealant applications in place. To help prevent dental damage, come in for a dental sealant treatment today.
