Effective dental sealant treatment available for patients in the North Hollywood area
Dental sealants are a great way for children and adults to keep their teeth healthy. Sealants are used to protect the chewing surfaces of the teeth. While many patients think of sealants as a treatment for children, it can be beneficial for adults as well. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat and the team of A-Dental Center encourage patients to ask about dental sealant treatment.
Patients in the North Hollywood area are welcome to visit the practice of A-Dental Center to learn about dental sealant treatment. Dental sealants are applied onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth to give them an extra layer of protection against dental caries. Sealants are extremely effective in helping patients keep their smile healthy. They cover the pits and fissures in the teeth that may be difficult to clean with toothbrush bristles.
The application of dental sealants is done quickly in the dental office. The dentist first provides a thorough cleaning of the teeth. This removes plaque and tartar, which may inhibit the dental sealant from sticking. An acid-like solution may also be applied to the teeth to help the sealant stick to the surfaces of the teeth. Then the sealant is applied to the tooth and is hardened using a special light. Some patients have one or more teeth sealed while others may have the entire arch prepared accordingly.
Dental sealants can last several years with proper application. As long as the sealant is intact, it can protect the teeth. During examinations twice a year, the dentist can check the condition of the sealants and reapply if necessary.
