Dr. Cory Gaunt and our talented oral care team at Downriver Smiles believe firmly in doing all we can to prevent dental issues when possible. One popular option to protect adolescent and even adult teeth is dental sealants. This quick, painless procedure provides added protection against dental caries. It’s ideal for those in your family who may need reminding about home oral care. Call Downriver Smiles in Spokane today, and ask about dental sealants.
Dental sealants are a plastic-like material that is completely biodegradable and safe for digestion. This substance is brushed onto the teeth surface and allowed to cure to form a strong barrier against cavities and bacterial infection. It is colorless, tasteless and completely harmless, but can provide vital extra protection against dental caries.
Back teeth in particular can be at higher risk for cavities, due to all the nooks and crannies in their shape. Younger patients may not get these teeth as clean, allowing bacteria to cause cavities that put their oral health at risk. Some older adults or special needs patients who have trouble with home oral care can also benefit from dental sealants.
