sealants and dental health
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth.
It’s effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
WHY DENTAL SEALANTS?
Thorough brushing and flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of teeth, but toothbrushes cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract all food and plaque. While fluoride helps prevent decay and helps protect all the surfaces of the teeth,dental sealants add extra protection for the grooved and pitted areas.
Children and adults can benefit from dental sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
Basic consultation cost will start from Rs 500 and depends on complexity the charges will be extra and will recommended if required
