If you would like a simple, effective way to protect your teeth from decay and disease, our exemplary dentists may recommend dental sealants. Dental sealants work as a shield to protect your teeth from bacteria they are exposed to every day. To learn more about the benefits of dental sealants, call our office today!
Dental sealants are made of clear resin material that is painted onto the surface of your teeth. Once the sealant is painted onto your teeth, it dries very quickly so you can enjoy this treatment in just one appointment. The sealant blends with the natural color of your teeth so your smile is protected and natural-looking. The sealant also smooths the surface of your teeth, so a toothbrush more effectively cleans your smile.
Dental sealants are usually recommended for children, but at Northwestern Dental Group we offer this treatment for both children and adults. Children should receive sealants between the ages of 6 and 12 years, or after their permanent molars come in. Adults should receive dental sealants if their teeth are especially prone to decay or disease, or if they never received this treatment as a child.
To learn if dental sealants are right for you, or to make your appointment, call our office at 847-505-0775 today!
