General Dental Care
Our teeth feature a lot of crevices that can be difficult to properly clean, especially for younger patients who lack the attention to detail and manual dexterity required to practice quality oral hygiene. To help lower the risk of tooth decay in kids, dentist Bita Zavari offers the application of dental sealants. Dental sealants effectively “seal” away the hard-to-clean areas of a patient’s teeth. Made from a hard plastic resin, dental sealants are easily brushed onto a patient’s teeth during just one 10-minute session. Once in position, sealants act as an impenetrable barrier that prevents the development of tooth decay in the treated teeth. Sealants are incredibly effective, do not change the way a patient eats or talks, and can last for several years before a reapplication is required. If you want to know more about what dental sealants can do to protect the oral health of your child, schedule a consultation with Dr. Zavari today!
