Dental sealants are a simple dental treatment that can aid in preventing tooth decay and cavities. Our dentist may recommend this treatment to patients of all ages, though children often benefit the most from this treatment. See if you should schedule a dental sealant in Las Vegas, Nevada, for you or your child.
Dental sealants are made of a biocompatible material that “seals” the teeth. It is applied in a thin coating onto the surface of the teeth, helping protect them from decay. Most often applied to the back molars, dental sealants work by creating a smooth surface on the tooth. This is easier to keep clean and protects the tooth from the bacteria and food particles that when they build up, can cause decay. Your experienced dentist, Dr. Bruce E. Crowley, recommends that children have dental sealants applied to their back molars as soon as these teeth come in. (This is usually between the ages of 6 and 12.) Dr. Crowley may also recommend dental sealants for adults who are prone to tooth decay.
