Did you know dental sealants can protect your children from poor oral health? Well, it’s true! Dental sealants can work for you to keep your smile safe for years to come! That is why, our team here at Sharon Sims in Shreveport, Louisiana, is happy to talk to you about dental sealants and how they can keep your smile healthy.
Dental sealants are designed to guard and protect your teeth called the molars. The molars in your smile are usually rough and have many nooks and crannies that are a great place for cavities to develop and grow. This can make them hard to keep clean and keep your smile safe from cavities. Dental sealants are a clear protective surface placed onto the top of your molars, which can last years and protect your molars from a cavity invasion.
A known fact is according to the American Dental Association, dental sealants have been proven to reduce the risk of cavities by 80 percent! This is vital to note because this can help keep your child’s oral health in excellent shape as they develop their smile into adulthood. Dental sealants can be used on people of all ages as well but are most often used for young children.
