How to Keep Dental Sealants Looking Good and Lasting Long

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Dental sealants are proven to prevent cavities, but how can you maintain this protection over time? Discover some simple ways to keep your tooth sealants strong and secure.

The Role and Reasons for Dental Sealants

If you’re highly prone to cavities, dental sealants can give you the decay protection you need. While once used only on kids, it’s become incredibly common for family dentistry specialists to place them on adults of all ages. These tooth sealants are designed to fill in the deep crevices and narrow crannies in molars that tend to trap food particles and plaque. Since it can be hard to clean these areas with a regular toothbrush, these particles soon develop into cavities. But by having an affordable dentist in Oxon Hill cover these teeth with dental sealants, decay can be kept away.

Long and Strong Cavity Protection

Dental sealants can be placed in a matter of minutes and offer years of cavity protection. According to family dentistry experts, tooth sealants can last up to 10 years with proper care and cleaning. Dental sealants are surprisingly strong and resilient, but can sometimes crack or wear away over time. If this occurs, an affordable dentist in Oxon Hill can quickly reapply them.

Care and Cleaning of Tooth Sealants

To keep tooth sealants in top condition, it’s important to take care of them. Luckily, all they require to stay their best is a good oral hygiene routine, along with regular check-ups and cleanings from a family dentistry specialist.
