Are you wondering if dental sealants are right for you? If so, you have come to the right place! Our team here at Healy Dental Care in Ogden, Utah, understands that not everyone is familiar with all the dental procedures and terminology, which is why we are more than happy to talk to you about dental sealants to see if they are right for you.
Dental sealants are designed to protect the back of your teeth called the molars. The molars in your smile are usually rough and have odd nooks and crannies that are a popular place for cavities to develop and grow. This can make them difficult to keep clean and keep your smile safe from cavities. Dental sealants are a clear protective surface painted onto the top of your molars, which can last years and protect your molars from cavity invasion.
In fact, according to the American Dental Association, dental sealants have been proven to reduce the risk of cavities by 80 percent! This is extremely important to note because this can help keep your child’s oral health in excellent shape as they develop their smile into adulthood. Dental sealants can be used on adults as well but are most often used for young children.
