Not sure if dental sealants would be the best option for your smile? Schedule an appointment with Berkeley Smiles in Berkeley. We would be happy to determine if dental sealants are right for your smile.
Dental sealants are a preventive dental care option which involves painting a BPA-free, liquid plastic material onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Most patients’ teeth are actually not flat. Instead, they are covered in dips, grooves, and depressions, perfect for hiding debris, bacteria, and even plaque. When dental sealants are applied to the teeth, a barrier is created, preventing these areas on the chewing surfaces of the teeth from harboring debris, bacteria, and plaque also allowing the patient to properly clean their smile easier. The barrier created by the dental sealants also protects teeth from the damage often caused by bacteria, acid, plaque and tartar, reducing the patient’s risk of tooth decay and cavity formation.
Due to the fact that teeth have depressions, grooves, and pits, debris can easily become trapped, making it hard for even a toothbrush to reach. As the debris hides in these areas, cavity formation and tooth decay start to occur. Dental sealants prevent this process, reducing the risk of decay and cavities.
