Dental Sealants – Another Tool For Cavity Prevention

Dental Sealants - Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Kirtland

Dental patients in the Kirtland, Bloomfield, and Rio Rancho areas know that regular brushing and flossing are essential for optimal oral health. However, the bristles of your toothbrush can’t reach into every small groove and depression in your teeth, especially the really bumpy back teeth. That’s where sealants can be invaluable.

Dental sealants are a plastic material that is applied by your dentist. This material is a resin that bonds to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, mainly in the pits and fissures. The plastic acts as a shield against acids and plaque that can damage the enamel.

Many residents might think that sealants are only for children and teenagers, but they can actually be beneficial for adults as well. If you are wondering if sealants are right for you, speak with your Kirtland, Bloomfield, or Rio Rancho dentist. This simple dental procedure can improve your oral health by protecting the surfaces that are particularly vulnerable to decay.

Many New Mexico dental insurance providers include dental sealants as a covered benefit, so check with your provider if you are considering them. If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about financing options. Because they can prevent cavities, dental sealants can save you money in the long run.

Whether you need a bi-annual cleaning or cosmetic dentistry, Sundance Dental & Orthodontics helps with a variety ways with your dental needs.

If you have any questions about these or other cosmetic dental procedures, call us today at 505-985-5626 to schedule a consultation.  Our high-tech staff would be happy to assist you.
