Cavities are one of the most common oral health problems in the nation, impacting people of all ages. At Eco Dental, we can provide your smile with added protection from decay by applying dental sealants to vulnerable areas of your dental structure, like your molars. That way, instead of dealing with cavities in Pearland once they’ve formed, you can keep them from ever affecting your oral health in the first place. If you believe you could benefit from this preventive treatment, be sure to schedule an appointment with our team at Eco Dental today!

What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are long-lasting, durable, protective shields that we can paint over your molars to prevent substances such as food debris from collecting in the grooves. They can easily be placed during a checkup and cleaning within about 30 minutes. Our team will simply paint the sealants over your teeth and use a curing instrument to make the sealants take on a hard, protective state. Once they’re placed, they’ll continue protecting your teeth for a year or longer.

Who Can Benefit From Dental Sealants?

Cavities can impact people of all ages, which is why dental sealants are beneficial for a variety of patients that are more susceptible to developing them. However, our children’s dentist in Pearland typically recommend sealants for our younger patients who are still learning how to take care of their pearly whites at home. They help preserve their baby teeth so their adult ones can grow in aligned, healthy, and fully functional. Plus, with the added protection from dental sealants, it makes brushing and flossing easier and more effective.

What Are The Benefits of Sealants?

There are countless advantages to getting dental sealants, including some of the following:

  • Improved oral health due to reduced risk of cavity development.
  • Increased confidence in children’s abilities to keep their smile healthy by brushing and flossing. This is great encouragement to maintain at-home oral hygiene for younger patients!
  • Better experiences at the dentist due to fewer cavity treatments.

If you have any questions about you or your child’s oral health, don’t hesitate to ask our friendly team of professionals. We’ll be more than happy to let you know if you can benefit from this preventive treatment!
