Tooth Sealants in Colorado Springs, CO
Brushing and flossing isn’t the only way to protect your teeth from decay. The bacteria in your mouth converts the carbohydrates and sugars you eat into tooth eroding acids. Over time, these acids can cause cavities and infection in your teeth. Too help prevent this from occurring, you can opt for decay blocking tooth sealants. The chewing surfaces of your back teeth are rough and uneven because they have small pits and grooves. When food and bacteria get stuck in the pits and grooves, they can form high risk decay areas. Tooth sealants can provide extra protection by covering the chewing surfaces of your back teeth and keeping the decay causing bacteria at bay. Tooth sealants can save time and money in the long run by avoiding the dental fillings, crowns, or caps that must be used to restore decayed teeth. You can schedule your tooth sealant appointment with the experienced preventive care team at Springs Dental Care today.
Tooth Sealants Help Protect Against Cavities & Tooth Decay
Tooth sealants are just thin plastic coatings that can be gently painted to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth. Tooth sealants act as a constant barrier against cavities. They are only used where decay occurs most often.
How Are Tooth Sealants Applied?
Tooth sealants can be applied quickly and easily. The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens. The plastic bonds into the pits and grooves of the chewing surfaces, and as long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. Tooth sealants will hold up well under normal bite forces and chewing and may last for several years at a time.
