Why choose dental sealants?

Caring for your health and maintaining good oral hygiene habits can do wonders for your mouth – and your overall well-being. But could you be doing more to keep your teeth strong and healthy, and also to prevent tooth decay? The answer is yes. By choosing dental sealants, you protect your teeth from potentially painful decay that could result in costly treatments.

Because children between 6 – 14 years of age have a greater risk for tooth decay, Arise Dental advises that sealants be applied within this age range. Still, older teenagers and adults can enjoy just as many benefits from sealants.

Benefits of Sealants

See why dental sealants are well worth considering:

  • Convenience – Nothing to remove. Nothing to lose. No pain. No hours wasted in the dentist’s chair.
  • Beauty – Concerned about a treatment affecting your appearance? Don’t be. Sealants match and can even enhance the look of your teeth.
  • Endurance – One application of sealants can last up to a decade before they require re-application.

Sealants Prevent Tooth Decay

Do you have a child between 6-14 years old? We recommend you bring them in for sealants to reduce the high risk of tooth decay for children in this age group. Sealants offer great preventive care for adults of all ages as well.
