Maintaining excellent oral health is extremely important, and sometimes your teeth might need a bit of assistance to stay healthy. At DentalMed Associates, we offer both dental fillings and sealants to fight against decay and cavities.
If you notice some pain or sensitivity, there’s a chance you might have a cavity. In these scenarios, the dentist will numb the area around your tooth before removing the decay. The tooth will be restored (filled), and that material will act as protection.
If you notice symptoms of a cavity, it’s important to come to see us as soon as possible to prevent it from turning into a serious infection, which could require a root canal.
Dental sealants act as a protective barrier that can help prevent decay from forming in the first place. If you have a tooth that is harder to reach with a toothbrush, or it’s been more susceptible to cavities in the past, sealants could be a smart option for you.
The application process is quick and simple. We will first clean the tooth and dry it thoroughly before applying an acid solution. The tooth is rinsed and dried again; then, the sealant is painted right over your tooth enamel.
