When you visit Arlington Dental Excellence, you can take extra steps to protect your teeth from decay by receiving dental sealants in Arlington, Virginia. These thin layers of composite resin are especially beneficial for young children who are still learning to care for their teeth and have difficulty cleaning plaque and food particles out of their back molars. You are welcome to speak with our dentist, Dr. Layth Ghanim, about dental sealants at your child’s next checkup or contact our office at 703-525-0157 today to schedule an appointment.
Dental sealants are a preventive treatment used to defend your teeth against decay. Sealants are typically recommended for children and for adults with deep grooves in the chewing surfaces of their teeth. Children often have difficulty in effectively brushing their teeth, and the deeper grooves in the teeth can sometimes be tricky to keep clear of food debris and other particles. This is where sealants come in.
Sealants literally “seal” the teeth, coating the surface of the teeth to block out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay. This translucent or tooth-colored coating also creates a smoother surface over your tooth, making it easier for you to keep your teeth clean while brushing.
