Schedule an appointment with our dentists, by calling West Road Dental at 713-937-0050.
Our practice usually recommends dental sealants as a pediatric preventive treatment. It is frequently recommended for children who have recently had their permanent molars come in, usually around the ages of 6 to 12. Dental sealants can also be used as a dental treatment for adult patients who are prone to dental decay and cavities.
Made from a clear or tooth-colored resin that is brushed onto the pits and curves of the chewing areas of the teeth for a more natural look, dental sealants “seal” the surfaces of your teeth to prevent bacteria and food from getting trapped and causing dental decay. Since the resin is applied in a thin, smooth coating, dental sealants are nonintrusive and do not interfere with normal dental hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing. This helps strengthen and protect your teeth and smile for long-lasting results.
Dental sealants are easy and comfortable to apply and usually only require one visit to our dental office. If you feel like you need extra protection to help your smile stay healthy or if you have any questions about our procedures and recommendations, contact our practice today to learn more and schedule an appointment with our experienced dentists and team.
