Dental Sealants in Union City, NJ
If you’re worried about cavities for you or your child, dental sealants from our Union City, NJ dental office can help give you some peace of mind. Dental sealants are a type of tooth-colored coating that covers your teeth’s chewing surfaces, filling in crevices and giving bacteria fewer places to hide.
It’s recommended that children get dental sealants as soon as their molars come in to cut down on the chances of tooth decay. It also makes their oral hygiene routine a little easier to keep up with. However, tooth sealants are a great option for adults as well.
What Do Dental Sealants Do?
Sealants help even out your tooth’s surface, filling in deep grooves and crevices to make them easier to clean. They’re great for kids who are still learning how to take care of their teeth, as they prevent plaque from building up in those cavities and causing tooth decay. They last about ten years and look completely natural, so no one will be able to notice them.
What to Expect
Dental sealants require only one appointment to apply, and the process is quick and painless—no anesthesia needed. The sealants are painted onto the teeth with a small brush, allowing your Union City, NJ dentist to apply them precisely where they need to go. Once the sealants have cured, you can eat and drink as you usually would.
If you’re interested in getting sealants for yourself or your child, call our Union City, NJ dental office and book an appointment today!
