Why might a Sacramento dentist suggest advanced dental sealants?
When patients in the Sacramento area are interested in learning about advanced dental treatments and technologies, they often turn to the team of Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams. Together, this team can provide patients with the best comprehensive dentistry services in the area and allow them to enjoy the benefits of quality care. Our team is committed to helping patients not only rejuvenate their smile, but reach great oral health. In order to do so, some patients may find dental sealants to be advantageous.
Dental sealants are commonly used for children, but can also be used for adults who are at a higher risk of developing dental caries. These are applied to the surfaces of the teeth to offer extra protection against decay. They can be wonderful for areas of the teeth such as deep grooves and crevices which may be difficult to thoroughly brush. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams can work with patients to determine if dental sealants are appropriate for them. This is done during an initial examination and with a dental health history. Patients may also undergo a series of x-rays to make sure they do not have any active areas of decay which may inhibit their effectiveness.
Sealants are easily applied in one visit. The teeth are cleaned, and then once dried, a solution is applied onto the surface to roughen it. This helps the sealant adhere to the tooth. Then the tooth is rinsed and dried before the sealant is applied. The sealant is a liquid that hardens in just a few seconds.
At the same appointment, patients can also speak to our dental team about restorative and cosmetic dentistry services. We want to help our patients achieve beautiful smiles that are reasonably priced and attainable for the average family, while still using the best, most high-quality materials available in dentistry.
