Some teeth are more susceptible to cavities than others. Molars are particularly prone to decay as they are situated in the back of your mouth, an area hard to reach with a toothbrush and dental floss. When children first start to get their permanent molars at around six or seven years old, you need to take stringent care of these teeth. After all, they will only have the one set for life.
Dental sealants are an excellent way of protecting these permanent molars. Sealants are thin polymer coatings that cover the chewing surface of teeth, protecting them from trapped food and the accompanying decay. Dr. Chang applies sealants for both children and adults in an absolutely painless and quick procedure.
For most patients, sealants last for years. This preventative dental treatment is a fast and simple method of preventing cavities, hindering painful decay, and avoiding large dental bills in the future. To schedule an appointment for sealants for your child or yourself, please call Bloomvale Dental at (951) 325-4600.
