Your periodontist, Dr. Daniela Zambon, offers dental sealants in Mansfield, Texas, to help every patient have the strong and healthy smile they deserve. If you want a top-notch smile, then it’s time to consider this treatment. Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that cover the teeth and shield the bacteria and other harmful substances. This can help prevent enamel erosion and cavities. Typically, sealants are used to protect the back teeth because the molars are generally tough to clean.
Usually, children are the most common patients to benefit from dental sealants. This is because the treatment protects their teeth and helps them have a strong smile while they learn about oral hygiene and smile care. However, adults can also benefit from sealants as long as they have healthy teeth and no dental fillings.
When helping your tooth with a sealant, your periodontist will deeply clean the smile and roughen the enamel of the tooth being treated. The rough surface will help the sealant adhere to the tooth. Then, your periodontist will dry the tooth and will paint the sealant onto the surface. Finally, she will harden the sealant with a special light.
