Dental Cleaning and Prevention / Dental Sealants in Dublin. OH
At Dublin Dental Care, we place dental sealants to help patients protect their teeth from harmful plaque build up.
Our teeth are constantly under attack from bacteria found in our favorite food and drinks – breads, sugars, sodas, even fruit and vegetables. Chewing surfaces and any teeth with deep grooves are especially susceptible to the effects of plaque build up, as they prove to be surfaces that are harder to clean and maintain.
To help protect your teeth, we might recommend placing dental sealants that act as a special guard against the build up of food and beverage particles. Made of thin plastic, these special caps have many benefits:
- Protect teeth from the development of cavities
- Require a minimally invasive procedure to place
- Less expensive than having a tooth fixed
- Are made of a clear or slightly colored material that matches tooth color
Dental sealants are generally recommended for our younger patients. However, we may recommend sealants for adult patients who tend to repeatedly develop cavities. At Dublin Dental Care, our sealants are BPA-free.
