Regular brushing and flossing are essential in preventing tooth decay. But another valuable tool are dental sealants, available at Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington.
Dental sealants are a thin layer of plastic painted onto the chewing surfaces of the molars. Applying them is completely painless, and once they’re on they can prevent eighty percent of cavities for up to two years. After that, they can be re-applied.
Sealants are used mostly in children’s teeth, but adults can get them too.
Of course, dental sealants are not a substitute for daily oral care. They should be considered a supplement to brushing and flossing: an added layer of protection against cavities.
