People who live in North York, Ontario, know that the correct oral care keeps their teeth healthier for longer. There is much more to oral care than brushing and flossing daily. The team at Respond Dental has options that can give your teeth extra protection.
Dental work can be costly and painful. Fortunately, dental sealants can add another layer of protection to your teeth and help you avoid harmful conditions.
Teeth are hardworking, and they’re essential for not just chewing food but also for speaking correctly. Equally important, having healthy teeth makes a person more attractive and confident.
Several things can cause problems with your teeth and gums, including:
One thing you can do is ask your dentist about dental sealants. Brushing and flossing can only do so much, and doing these two things doesn’t remove plaque effectively from teeth. Especially concerning are the areas of the teeth’s chewing surfaces because they have pits and crevices.
When you apply a dental sealant, both children and adults can count on more protection from cavities. The way it works is that the sealant smoothes the vulnerable surfaces of the teeth, keeping plaque and food from becoming stuck there.
Dental sealants last a long time. Specifically, dental sealants can remain in place for between three and five years. At every dental visit, your dentist will evaluate your dental sealants to ensure they’re firmly in place and offer protection for your teeth.
Also, dental sealants are affordable and covered by most dental insurance providers. The sealants are quickly applied during one session and take just a few minutes. Dental sealants are an excellent investment in your oral health or that of your child.
