Have you ever considered the power of dental sealants? Dental sealants can ward off cavities and protect your teeth. Here at Higley Dental Care in Gilbert, Arizona, we offer dental sealants and are happy to keep you informed on how they can work for you.

In a nutshell, dental sealants are designed to protect the back of your teeth called the molars. The molars in your smile are generally rough and have odd nooks and crannies that are a popular place for cavities to develop and grow. This can make them difficult to brush well and keep your smile safe from cavities. Dental sealants are a clear protective treatment painted onto the top of your molars, which can last years and protect your molars from a cavity invasion.

In fact, according to the American Dental Association, dental sealants have been confirmed to reduce the risk of cavities by 80 percent! This is extremely imperative to note because this can help keep your child’s oral health in excellent shape as they develop their smile into adulthood. Dental sealants can be used on grownups as well but are most often used for young children.

If you have questions about dental sealants and would like to find out if they are right for you, please call us right away at 480-988-7007 to set up an appointment with Dr. Zack Nimri. Our friendly dental staff is happy to assist your smile and help fight for your oral health in any way we can.
