Seal Away Tooth Decay!

Sealants at Foster Dental Care

To help protect your child's teeth from decay, consider dental sealants!

Decay damages teeth permanently, which is why the team at Foster Dental Care recommends dental sealants when children (usually around 6 years old) first get their molars. However, this process is not just for children, as many adults are great candidates for dental sealants too! This quick, easy, pain-free process can save you time, money and help avoid the discomfort that accompanies cavities.

Generally, dental sealants are applied to the four back teeth in the mouth. The sealant is a clear, white or tinted shade that is not visible when talking or smiling. The process only takes 30-45minutes and is recommended to piggyback a dental cleaning appointment. The lifetime of a sealant is 5-10 years and throughout that time will act as a barrier to food and germ particles from getting into the grooves in your teeth.

Remember, the key ingredients in preventing tooth decay and maintaining a healthy mouth are:
• Brushing your teeth 2x a day
• Flossing at least once a day (better yet – use your HydroFloss!)
• A balanced diet with limited snacks
• Regular dental visits
