What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are a preventive treatment that Dr. Feldman might recommend in order to protect your teeth from decay. Sealants are thin coatings made from tooth-colored resin materials, so they are discreet and will not affect the appearance of your smile.
Should I get sealants?
Your back teeth naturally form depressions and grooves in them that are difficult to clean properly. Because of this, buildup of food particles and plaque in these spots can lead to tooth decay. Dental sealants in Washington, District Of Columbia, are used to protect your teeth from harmful bacteria and plaque that could result in cavities and tooth decay.
The single-visit procedure to apply dental sealants is fast and pain-free, and there is no drilling and minimal irritation at any point. Normal eating and drinking can resume as soon as sealants are placed, and the high-quality tooth sealants that the dental office of James K Feldman DDS offers will last for several years. Our knowledgeable dentist will often recommend that children have their teeth sealed as soon as permanent molars begin to come in.
