Why Dental Sealants are Ideal for Adults

dca_blog_dental-sealants

If you think dental sealants are only for kids, think again. Today, people of all ages who are highly susceptible to cavities are protecting their teeth with tooth sealants.

Places and Faces for Dental Sealants

While dental sealants have been traditionally reserved for the teeth of kids and teens, it’s now incredibly common for family dentistry specialists to recommend this cavity protection to adults. Tooth sealants are made to fill in the grooves and nooks in a person’s molars, which is where plaque and bacteria often get trapped and develop into cavities. But once an affordable dentist in Owings Mills seals these indentations with dental sealants, it prevents those particles from getting caught in teeth and causing cavities.

Long and Strong Cavity Protection

Tooth sealants take mere minutes to apply, but provide years of decay protection. While dental sealants can last over 20 years with proper dental care and cleaning, most family dentistry experts advise having them reapplied around every five years since everyday wear and tear can cause them to chip or crack. If you’re interested in the cavity protection of dental sealants, ask your affordable dentist in Owings Mills if tooth sealants can save your smile.
