OptiSmile Advanced Dentistry in Sea Point believes in daily brushing and flossing to help remove food particles and bacteria to protect your teeth and gums. Dental Sealants prevents tooth decay and can also stop decay in its earliest stages.
Dental sealants can protect against tooth decay by preventing food particles and bacteria settling on the tooth’s surface. In summary, sealants:
– Are applied quickly and painlessly over teeth by a dentist and should last for several years with no side effects.
– Can be placed over early signs of decay to prevent further damage.
– Should never replace a good oral hygiene routine.
Brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist for regular checkups are the best protection against tooth decay.
“Ask your dentist if sealants are a good option for you and your family.”
