Simple Ways to Keep Dental Sealants Looking and Lasting Their Best

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Once you’re armed with the cavity defense of dental sealants, do you know how to preserve their protection? Find out some simple steps to keep tooth sealants strong.

The Cavity Defense of Dental Sealants

Dental sealants have become an extremely common way for people of all ages to protect their teeth from cavities. Family dentistry specialists usually suggest tooth sealants to anyone at a high risk for cavities. These tooth sealants are designed to fill in the deep crevices and narrow crannies in molars that tend to trap food particles and plaque. Since it can be hard to clean these areas with a regular toothbrush, these particles soon develop into cavities. But by having an affordable dentist in Fairfax cover these teeth with dental sealants, decay can be kept away.

The First Choice for Lasting Protection

Applying dental sealants takes a matter of minutes and offers years of cavity protection. According to family dentistry experts, tooth sealants can last up to 10 years with proper care and cleaning. Dental sealants are surprisingly strong and resilient, but can sometimes crack or wear away over time. If this occurs, an affordable dentist in Fairfax can quickly reapply them.

Commonsense Care for Tooth Sealants

To keep dental sealants in good shape, they simply demand good care. Fortunately, all tooth sealants need to stay strong is good dental hygiene, along with regular check-ups and cleanings from a family dentistry specialist.
