Dr. Sula and Associates can prevent plaque acids from decaying your teeth with dental sealants. Please contact Advantage Dentists at 281-829-5000 for more information about dental sealants in Katy and Humble, Texas, and to make your appointment with our caring dentists.
A dental sealant is a clear or tooth-colored resin that is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth or teeth. The sealant protects cavities by blocking food debris and bacteria out of the tooth or teeth. The sealant accomplishes this by forming a smooth surface over the natural grooves and pits of the tooth surface, thus making it easier to effectively clean the teeth by brushing.
Dental sealants are usually recommended for children. Our dentists will often recommend dental sealants for the permanent molars when they come in, which usually occurs between the ages of 6 and 12. Sealants may also be recommended for adults whose teeth are prone to decay or for teeth that have not had decay in the past. Dental sealants can be applied in one short, comfortable visit to our practice. Sealants are very useful in helping prevent tooth decay and keeping your smile healthy.
