The molars at the very back of your mouth are some of bacteria’s favorite places to hide and cause cavities. One of the best treatments for preventing cavities in such vulnerable areas is through the application of a teeth sealant, like those the office of David P. Micklin in Glendale commonly utilizes. Adults can request a teeth sealant treatment, but this procedure is often reserved for children. Nothing out there replaces brushing and flossing on a regular basis, but teeth sealants can prevent cavities from forming.
Dr. David P. Micklin has performed teeth sealant application on many of Glendale’s children and adults alike. The procedure starts at his office in Cherry Creek with a thorough cleaning and the application of an acid, which will rough up the surface of the molar where a thin, protective, plastic coating is bonded on to the tooth. It’s never too late to get a sealant, but the earlier, the better for the families in Glendale and throughout the 80246 area. By smoothing out the bumpy and uneven surface of the molars, there aren’t many places for harmful bacteria to hide. This is a quick process and is completely painless, so ask the office of Dr. David P. Micklin in Cherry Creek if teeth sealants are right for you or your family member.
Teeth sealants used at our Cherry Creek office are 80% effective at reducing the risk of decay in molars, and according to the CDC, children without sealants will suffer from three times the number of cavities as compared to those with them. There are no known side-effects, and out Glendale, patients are happy with their results and cavity-free children. When applied correctly and treated with care, your sealants should last for many years after the procedure.
