Dental sealants are an effective and inexpensive way to protect your teeth from cavities and decay before they occur. In fact, according to the American Dental Association, sealants placed on the chewing surfaces of permanent molars reduce the risk of cavities by 80 percent.
At Summerwood Family Dental, Dr. Julie Spaniel and our team are committed to helping you and your family enjoy a lifetime of good oral health. Preventative services such as dental sealants play a key role in keeping your teeth and gums healthy and avoiding serious dental issues. Dr. Spaniel often recommends dental sealants as part of a preventative dentistry plan, particularly for her youngest patients. Sealants, along with proper brushing and flossing, can help keep your child’s teeth healthy and cavity free for many years.
