Dental Sealants From Your Dentist in Vernon
Dental sealants have been offered by dentists for many years, but it’s in recent decades that they’ve gained significant popularity. Providing preventive dental benefits for people of all ages, sealants fill the grooves and fissures of molars, where plaque, tartar, and decay are known to develop. At Dr. Elwood Astleford Inc. in Vernon, we witness the many benefits that our patients have and continue to derive from having sealants applied to their teeth.
How do dental sealants add to your oral hygiene routine?
While brushing and flossing are vital to oral health, there are many areas of the mouth that are difficult to reach, which is where dental sealants can help.
Because this thin, protective, painless fluid coating coats the chewing surfaces of molars, it fills tooth grooves and pits and creates a bacteria barrier. The result is that decay is far less likely to develop in and on these teeth for up to 10 years.
How do you care for dental sealants?
Teeth that have been treated with sealants require the same care as natural teeth. To keep them in top form, follow a diligent at-home dental hygiene routine of brushing twice and flossing once daily, and see us bi-annually for professional cleanings and check-ups!
