Our dentist, Dr. John Verville, offers dental sealants in Fleming Island, Florida, to help you have the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve. Little did you know, dental sealants can help you in a myriad of ways, so please consider using them if you’re interested in maintaining healthy teeth. To help you know all about dental sealants, our dentist is happy to share some facts with you. Those facts are:
-Dental sealants are plastic coatings that cover the back permanent teeth and protect them. The sealants act as a barrier to keep the chewing surfaces in top-notch condition.
-Dental sealants can protect your teeth from tooth decay and enamel erosion.
-Dental sealants are most often used to protect the back teeth because those teeth are the toughest to clean. The sealants will cover the teeth and keep them healthy and strong even though they are frequently exposed to food particles and bacteria.
-Only one appointment is required to place the sealants. In fact, your dentist is able to provide the sealants quickly during your routine dental cleaning and exam appointment.
-The placement of dental sealants is not uncomfortable or painful. The treatment is simple and easy and doesn’t even require a local anesthetic or dental sedative.
