If your teeth are more susceptible to tooth decay, our dentists at Las Cruces Dental Associates, PC, can provide quality dental sealants to help you protect your teeth and keep them healthy. Our skilled dental team will discuss your options for this and other protective and preventive oral health measures to avoid the natural and avoidable development of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Our Las Cruces, New Mexico, area team encourages you to learn more about solutions like dental sealants to better understand their role in your oral health and wellness.

What are dental sealants?

Sealants can be provided as part of your regular dental appointments and are available to both children and adults.  Dental sealants are a thin, plastic protective coating for teeth placed on the chewing surfaces of back teeth, specifically molars and premolars. These areas are often more prone to tooth decay because of their deep grooves and pits, which can trap food particles and bacteria, making them harder to clean with brushing alone. The sealant functions as a barrier, sealing off these areas and preventing food and bacteria from getting stuck and causing decay.

Why should I consider the benefits of dental sealants for preventing tooth decay?

Dental sealants are an effective preventive measure that protects teeth from cavities. They are especially beneficial for children who may have a harder time brushing properly and adults with deep pits and grooves in their molars. By sealing off these areas, dental sealants can greatly reduce the potential for tooth decay and the need for more invasive procedures such as fillings or root canals. They can also save you time and money in the long run by preventing potential dental issues.
