Protective dental sealants near Wicker Park, IL are a simple, painless solution to prevent cavities, usually recommended for young children and teens.
You may have noticed that your molars (the teeth in the back of your mouth) have lots of ridges that are great for chewing. Over time, the ridges become worn and tend to get deeper and narrower. Food and bacteria may become nestled and eventually wedged in these difficult to reach spaces. They will cause decay and ultimately lead to cavities if left untreated.
Dente Complete Dentistry offers protective dental sealants to help prevent food and bacteria from getting in those narrow spaces. Dental sealants are comprised of a thin plastic coating that is painted onto your teeth’s chewing surfaces. The resin then fills the worn spaces and creates a smoother surface for brushing away food and bacteria. This protective shield over the tooth’s enamel can last up to 10 years with proper care and cleaning, but eventually, wear off over time.
