If brushing and flossing is not enough, Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and associates may recommend that you receive dental sealants in Laredo, Texas. Dental sealants are a great way to add protection for more difficult-to-clean areas, such as grooves in the tooth’s biting surface, where a toothbrush may not be able to reach. For more information about dental sealants, we invite you to contact Menta Dentistry at 956-242-0223. Our dentists and team look forward to hearing from you soon!
Dental sealants are a preventive treatment that help protect your teeth from decay. Sealants are made of clear or tooth-colored material, and are painted onto the chewing surface of your teeth. Once hardened, they coat the tooth to create a smooth shield over the pits and groves of the tooth surface. This blocks out bacteria and food debris, and makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth at home.
Dental sealants are usually provided for children. Sealants should be applied to the permanent molars as soon as they come in (between ages six and 12). Sealants are also recommended for adults whose teeth are at greater risk of decay. Our dentists can apply a dental sealant in just one visit to our office.
We welcome you to contact our office today to learn more about the benefits of dental sealants and schedule your appointment with our caring dentists.
