If you find that you or a family member of yours is constantly coming into the dental office to receive a cavity filling, and you may be one of the many patients that are prone to tooth decay. In this case, there is a solution. Dental sealants in Katy, TX offer your teeth out of protection against tooth decay that can be wreaking havoc in your mouth. Let’s take a look at what they are, how they applied, and why you may want them.
Dental sealants are a thin liquid that is applied to the teeth to add an extra barrier between oral bacteria and the nooks and crannies of your molars and front teeth. Dental sealants are ideal for patients that are prone to tooth decay, making the surface of the teeth smoother and easier to clean. The dental sealant itself is applied in a quick and easy way, that anyone can endure.
To begin with, the teeth are slightly buffed and coated with a special solution to aid in the binding of the dental sealant. Then, the dentist will paint on the dental sealant on each tooth quickly but precisely. The sealant is cured using a specialized UV light that then hardens the dental sealant making it efficient for years to come. By means of a routine dental hygiene regimen, your dental sealants can last for years to come.
