Dental Sealants – Another Tool For Cavity Prevention

Dental Sealants - Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Londonderry

Regular brushing and flossing is essential for good dental health. But the bristles of your toothbrush can’t reach into every small groove and depression in your teeth, especially the really bumpy back teeth. That’s where sealants provided by Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH can be invaluable.

Dental sealants are a plastic material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of your teeth. It bonds to the surfaces and acts as an extra layer of protection against acids and plaque that can damage the enamel.

Many people assume that sealants are only for children and teenagers, but they can be good for adults, too. If you are wondering if sealants might be right for you, call our office to set up an appointment.

This simple dental procedure can improve your dental health by protecting the surfaces that are particularly vulnerable to decay.

How many teeth should be sealed? It really depends on how prone you are to getting cavities. One rule of thumb, however, is that the sooner that sealants are applied, the better. That’s the main reason why sealants are associated with children’s dentistry.

At Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, the dental health of each patient is our top priority. We provide family and pediatric dentistry, as well as urgent dental care. Schedule an appointment with us today.
