Are you ready for a tooth restoration treatment to protect your smile this holiday season? If you haven’t already come in for a dental sealant coating, now is the perfect opportunity. Dental sealants apply a thin layer onto the chewing surfaces of teeth, specifically your premolars and molars, to prevent tooth decay. Given the excessive amounts of sugar and harmful substances in foods and drinks that we often consume during the holiday season, now is the time to protect yourself with adequate protection via dental sealants.

Dental sealants are highly effective tooth restoration treatments in which a thin coating is applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth. Thanks to the materials used in their construction, they are often clear and allow the natural beauty of teeth to shine through. In addition, this helps the dentist to determine if any damage is occurring underneath.

Dental sealants are extremely durable and can last up to 10 years. They’re even effective for children as soon as a child has their first molar grow in, and can be used to help protect their teeth and lower the risk of tooth decay by as much as 80%. Given the likelihood of excessive sugar consumption for children, it is a good idea to have dental sealants placed beforehand.
