To Seal or Not to Seal?

Posted .

If you are wondering how you seal out tooth decay, look no further. Our dentist offers dental sealants for our patients who struggle with tooth decay on their molars.

Although daily brushing and flossing are the best way to prevent cavities. It’s not always easy to clean all the little nooks and crannies of our teeth, even more so the back teeth. These teeth are called molars, and even though they are rough and uneven they are a favorable spot for leftover food particles to hide in. This can create bacteria causing cavities.

Thankfully, there is a way that you can keep those teeth clean, and that is by sealing them! A dental sealant consists of a thin, protective coating designed to adhere to the chewing surfaces of your teeth. While sealants are not a substitute for tooth brushing or flossing, they can make a difference in cavities forming and may even help stop the early stages of decay.

Dental sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of tooth decay in molars. The good news is, both children and adults can benefit from getting dental sealants, though the earlier you get them the better off your smile will be.

Our skilled doctors, Dr. Timothy Gardner, Dr. Todd Leiker and Dr. Ken Ferguson, are here to help. We invite you to call our office to schedule your next visit and ask any of our team members about dental sealants in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas, and the surrounding areas!
