Your teeth are covered by an enamel that helps protect them. Over time, plaque that forms on your teeth can start to break the enamel down causing more cavities and other dental problems.
While regular brushing, flossing, and visits to Dr. Vette can minimize issues caused by plaque, crevices and uneven spots in teeth are more susceptible to plaque issues since the bristles of your toothbrush cannot reach these areas to remove food and plaque.
Sealants do just what their name implies. They seal food and plaque out of these problem areas your brush can’t reach.
Sealant application can be done in minutes and is essentially just painted on to your teeth, unnoticeable to anyone.
Sealants are long lasting and in the long run, will end up saving you money from repeated dentist visits to take care of cleanings and cavities if these areas are left untreated.
Contact Dr. Vette today to learn more about taking preventative measures to protect your teeth with sealants.
