Dental Sealants in Wrightsville Beach, NC

dental sealants in wilmington ncOur Expert Doctors Help Protect Your Smile

Your molars have many ridges and bumps that aid in chewing food. However, as time goes on, these ridges tend to get deeper and narrower, making it more difficult to keep them clean. Bacteria and food can become trapped in these areas, leading to a higher risk of decay and cavities. The solution to this problem is dental sealants. Dental sealants are made of resin that fills in the worn spaces in the molars and creates a smoother surface to make it easier to brush away food. At Atlantic Dental Group, our experienced team offers dental sealants in Wrightsville Beach, NC that protect your molars from decay.

Typically, sealants are applied to a child’s permanent teeth as they erupt. However, adult molars can also be sealed, provided a tooth does not show any evidence of decay. The sealants that we place have been highly successful in preventing decay.

How Do Sealants Work?

Sealants are simply a resin that is placed over the molars to prevent the accumulation of food and bacteria. This also prevents the buildup of tartar, the hardened deposits that harbor bacteria that cause decay. Consistent brushing and flossing doesn’t prevent the buildup of tartar. Sealants make it much easier to clean your teeth well.

What Happens After Placement of Sealants?

After you get sealants, it’s important to continue a strict dental hygiene regimen. Regular brushing and flossing is critical to maintaining good dental health and avoiding cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. If cared for properly, sealants can last for years.
