Dental Sealants in Hammond – Protect Your Teeth from Decay

Dental Sealants Advanced Dental Concepts in Hammond, LAProtecting your teeth involves regular flossing and brushing your teeth after every meal, but sometimes bacteria and decay are inevitable and can still make their way into your gums and teeth.

From cosmetic dentistry to teeth restorations, more and more dental centers are coming up with ways to provide methods for keeping teeth healthy and free of decay. One of them is a dental sealant that has been a regular mainstay among patients and dental experts in giving protection to teeth.

How Do Sealants Keep Our Teeth Protected?

Teeth sealants are coatings made of plastic that are placed on the occlusal or chewing part of the back teeth; they are responsible for protecting our teeth from decay. Cavity sealants are usually placed on fissure of the first molar tooth, once the chewing part has already been erupted and went beyond the gum. Once this chewing area is sealed, the tooth coating will help protect it.

Fissures that occur on our molars can be accumulated by bacteria. The deeper and narrower the fissure is, the harder it is to clean it. Fluoride in our toothpaste keeps decay at bay, but dental sealants serve as extra protection for our teeth.

To protect the teeth that are most prone to dental decay, Advanced Dental Concepts may apply a dental sealant. It’s a tooth-colored or clear plastic material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Sealants will create a smooth surface over the pits and grooves of these teeth, making them much easier to keep clean and free of decay through regular brushing and flossing.

Do they hurt?

Just like with most dental procedures, the fear of the treatment hurting us is very common. It is very understandable to be nervous about dental treatments with which you have no prior experience. The good news is that this particular procedure is painless.

In fact, this will only take a couple of minutes and you’re good to go!

How long do they last?

With proper care, the sealants can last for up to ten years. They are not required to be removed because they gradually wear away over time and once it does, it’s your cue to get another one.

Still, the hardened plastic material will hold well as long as you are maintaining your oral health well also.

We Offer Protection Coating for Your Teeth

Our treatment includes a team of dentists who will provide teeth sealants, as well as adhesives for preventing tooth decay.

As part of the tooth repair procedures, Advanced Dental Concepts offers quality tooth protection sealants for both children and adults. We offer more dental services such as children dentistry, teeth restorative dentistry, dental cosmetics, and teeth x-rays. You are in good hands.

We recommend 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.

If you would like to learn more about sealants and general dentistry, or to schedule your appointment with Advanced Dental Concepts, please call us at 980-240-5445.

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans
