Pit and fissure sealants are currently recommended by the American Dental Association to prevent tooth decay in both permanent and baby teeth. The procedure consists on placing a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” onto the chewing surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids. This procedure can benefit and protect children and young adults against tooth decay.
Preventive Maintenance / Cleaning / Prophy:
Regular cleaning is usually recommended and covered by most insurance companies every 6 months for both children and adults. This procedure helps remove plaque and calculus/tartar deposits from places that are not accessible during your regular home-care. It is a great opportunity not only to clean your teeth, but also to examine the overall status of your oral cavity!
