Protect Those Nooks And Crannies

dental sealants Charlotte

Dr. Christopher Bowman is dedicated to the prevention of tooth decay, which is the foundation for a healthy and beautiful smile. Preventative dentistry – brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings with a dental hygienist – are crucial for keeping your smile bright and free of tooth decay. There are some places, however, where enamel damage can occur even with dedicated oral hygiene.

The very back of the mouth, where the premolars and molars are, is the most problematic area to brush and floss. Deep pits in molars and spaces between teeth are the perfect environment for cavities to flourish. Food and bacteria that is lodged in pits of molars and spaces between teeth create acid that has direct contact with tooth enamel and immediately goes to work.

While brushing frequently is important, an additional safeguard against tooth decay is the application of dental sealants. Dental sealants are a plastic barrier that Dr. Bowman can apply. The sealants are placed over the top of each tooth, to prevent bacteria and plaque having direct contact with the tooth.

Many Charlotte parents obtain sealants for their children and teens, and many adults in the Dilworth area are having them applied to help fight tooth decay and protect enamel. After sealants are applied, they will be examined at each visit and reapplied as necessary.

Are they cost effective? Sealants are relatively inexpensive initially and downright cheap when you consider the cost of filling cavities and restorative procedures that may be necessary in the future. Sealants may be the best investment you ever make in your child’s smile.

To keep a healthy smile, follow these essential steps:

Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush that is replaced every few months
Brush with ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste after each meal
Eat a diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and low fat protein sources.
Limit or avoid sugary foods and drinks, especially soda and hard or chewy candy
Visit Dr. Bowman at least once a year and have your teeth cleaned and examined
Consider having sealants to help protect the enamel in the hard-to-clean places
