Dental sealants are an effective way to protect a child’s molars. A sealant is a specialized dental plastic that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the molars, to ward against the development of decay. The molars are the teeth that develop decay most easily, as the chewing surfaces can collect tiny particles of food, off which certain bacteria feed. These bacteria produce an acid that eats away at tooth enamel, leading to tooth decay.
At Hillock Family Dentistry, we focus on preventative care. The application of a dental sealant can keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong, protected against decay for many years.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
