When it comes to protecting your smile, preventative dental care is an essential component of a strategy designed to prevent harmful conditions such as disease, infections, and tooth decay. However, there’s one vital tool that’s often overlooked — sealants. At Respond Dental in North York, Ontario, Dr. Reza N. Roodsar and his talented team can offer your radiant smile an extra layer of protection thanks to sealants.
Dental sealants are a solution that protects teeth. There are times when flossing and brushing prove inadequate. These techniques may not effectively remove plaque and food from teeth, especially on chewing surfaces with many pits and crevices. Dental sealant benefits include smoothing these surfaces while keeping plaque and food from getting stuck. And while this treatment is often considered mainly for children, adult patients may also benefit from sealants.
Most dental sealants can last three to five years if a patient maintains proper care. During every visit to our office, your sealants are evaluated to see if it’s still in place and fulfilling their job to protect your teeth. Sealants provide the protection patients need by helping keep harmful cavities at bay.
Dr. Reza N. Roodsar and his team of professionals can determine if and when you will need a new dental sealant placed during your appointment. Thankfully, dental sealants can be applied quickly while providing years of protection for your teeth. According to the Centers for Disease Control, sealants protect against 80 percent of cavities for two years and continue to provide up to 50 percent protection for up to four years.
Plus, they are very affordable and covered by many dental insurance plans. The out-of-pocket costs are also very reasonable.
