At Select Dental Group, We Recommend Sealants. Here’s Why…

As your dentist in Plymouth, we always have your, and your family’s, best interest in mind. It’s our job to help you keep healthy – in body and smile – and all of us at Select Dental Group take this very seriously. With a preventive view in everything we do, our goal is to intercept oral health issues before they happen … to keep you smiling.

One of the most-simple things you can do for your oral health – besides keeping an excellent home care routine of brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day – is to consider dental sealants.

What are dental sealants? They are a thin plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth (usually the molars and premolars) to protect them from decay-causing bacteria. Because it’s applied in liquid form, sealants seep into the deep pits and fissures on the tooth surface, creating a protective shield over the tooth enamel. The sealant is applied like paint and is completely comfortable.

Dental sealants are ideal for:

  • Children who are unable to brush their teeth effectively
  • Anyone who keeps a less-than-ideal homecare routine
  • Patients who have mobility challenges
  • Those suffering from dementia and whose oral hygiene is irregular
  • People with naturally deep pits and fissures in their molars.
