NW Calgary Dental Sealants
Preventing tooth decay and cavities.
What are Dental Sealants?
Preventative dentistry for children and adults.
Dental sealants help prevent tooth decay and cavities by creating a protective shield over the enamel surface of each tooth.
The chewing surfaces of teeth contain grooves and crevices, but some grooves are too deep, making it hard to brush properly. Unfortunately, when food and plaque become trapped, tooth decay may develop.
Sealants are an easy way to create a barrier against cavity-causing bacteria using a safe dental resin material similar to white fillings. We place the dental sealant over your tooth’s biting surface and drastically reduce the likelihood of dental decay formation.
How Sealants Protect Your Smile
The simple process.
Placing dental sealants is quick and simple, and especially useful for children still learning to brush!
Our NW Calgary dentist bonds the sealant to the tooth without much preparation. Once applied, sealants help prevent tooth decay by filling the depressions and grooves of the teeth, creating a barrier.
Our dentist in NW Calgary and the 16th Avenue Dental team offer a wide range of children’s dentistry services. Our sealants in NW Calgary are just one of the many children’s and adult dentistry treatments we provide to help prevent tooth decay and cavities.
