Dental sealants are a popular preventative measure used to protect teeth from decay and cavities. Sealants are an excellent option for children and teenagers who may be at higher risk for dental cavities due to poor oral hygiene habits, sugary diets, or genetic factors. However, adults may also benefit from sealants to protect their teeth from decay and prolong their oral health. At Fresh Leaf Dental in Tustin, California, we offer safe and effective sealant services for patients of all ages.
At Fresh Leaf Dental, our experienced dental team will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to determine whether sealants are a good option for you. If they are, we'll work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that fits your unique needs. Our dental sealants are made from high-quality materials and are carefully applied to ensure proper adhesion and coverage. We'll also provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you maintain the longevity of your sealants and ensure optimal oral health.
Factors that indicate you are a good candidate for sealants include deep grooves or pits on the chewing surfaces of your teeth, a history of cavities or tooth decay, difficulty reaching and cleaning the back teeth, and a diet high in sugar or carbohydrates. It's important to note that dental sealants are not a substitute for good oral hygiene habits. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings are still necessary to maintain optimal oral health. Sealants simply provide an added layer of protection to help reduce your risk of cavities and decay.
