Did you know that there's a way to help prevent tooth decay that's easy and affordable? At Indianapolis Dentistry we know that your children's dental health is a high priority in your family, and we wanted to let you know about sealants, which are a fantastic weapon against cavities. A sealant is a clear or white material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay occurs most often. The sealant acts as a barrier that keeps out plaque and food and decreases the risk of tooth decay. Sealants are easy to apply; each tooth requires only a few minutes for application.
What's more, sealants are very cost-effective. Properly applied and maintained sealants are extremely effective in preventing pit and fissure decay. So you'll save both dollars and your children's discomfort by applying sealants rather than allowing cavities to develop.
Please call our office today at 317-882-0228 if you'd like to learn more about how sealants can help protect your children against tooth decay. We want to provide you with the very best in preventive care that Greenwood, Indiana has to offer.
