To protect the teeth that are most prone to dental decay, Advanced Dental Concepts may apply a dental sealants.
A sealant is a tooth-colored or clear plastic material that is applied over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Sealants will create a smooth surface over the pits and grooves of these teeth, making the teeth much easier to keep clean and free of decay through regular brushing and flossing.
Advanced Dental Concepts recommends having dental sealants placed on the back teeth as soon as they erupt, which usually occurs between the ages of six and twelve. Children can benefit greatly from dental sealants and the additional protection they offer the teeth.
If you would like to learn more about sealants and preventive dentistry, or if you wish to schedule your appointment with Advanced Dental Concepts, please call Advanced Dental Concepts in Hammond, LA- today.
