Dental Sealants in Macon, GA
The design of your molars is perfect for helping you chew your food. But it is also perfect for trapping plaque and food particles that can lead to cavities or other dental issues. Since those teeth can be hard to reach with a toothbrush, talk to our dentist about protecting them with sealants. Call Northside Family Dentistry at 478-475-1976 for an appointment for dental sealants in Macon, Georgia, with Dr. Clinton M. Watson for your child or even for yourself.
Protect Your Teeth From Decay
A sealant is a preventive dental treatment that our dentist may recommend to protect patients’ teeth from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is painted onto the chewing surface of teeth. By blocking out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, the sealant prevents decay and cavities. The dental sealant forms a smooth coating over the natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface, which also makes it easier to effectively clean teeth with normal brushing.

Dental sealants are most often recommended for children. They are frequently recommended for the permanent molars as soon as they come in, usually between the ages of 6 and 12 years. We may also recommend dental sealants for adult patients whose teeth are prone to decay or have not been restored or suffered from decay in the past. We can apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable visit to our practice. Sealants can be a powerful tool in preventing decay and keeping your smile healthy. To learn more about dental sealants and how our team can keep your smile in good health, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.
