Dental Sealants Help Protect Your Teeth From Bacteria

Why Gunnerson Dental Recommends Dental Sealants

What Dr. Gunnerson Wants You To Know About Dental Sealants

A sealant is a preventive dental treatment that Dr. Gunnerson may recommend to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth. By blocking out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant helps prevents decay and cavities. The dental sealant forms a smooth surface over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean your teeth with normal brushing.

Why Might Dr. Gunnerson Recommend Dental Sealants For You?

Dental sealants are most often recommended for children; Dr. Gunnerson frequently recommends sealants for the permanent molars as soon as they come in, which is usually between the ages of 6 and 12 years. He may also recommend dental sealants for adult patients whose teeth are prone to decay or for teeth that have not been restored or suffered from decay in the past. We can apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable visit to our practice. Sealants can be a powerful tool in preventing decay and keeping your smile healthy.
