Do you make a point of brushing and flossing regularly? Do you schedule appointments with our dentist once every six months? Do you do these things for your children as well? Do you still wonder if there could be anything else you should consider doing? If so, there are a number of things you can consider doing, such as considering the benefits of dental sealants.

As you may know, the outer layer of your teeth is known as enamel. This layer is extremely hard and protects your pearly whites from cavities and decay. Sealants essentially serve as a second protective layer. Generally, we recommend sealants for young children, though adults could be good candidates as well. However, if you’re interested in a sealant, your teeth will have to be fairly healthy. Still, if your teeth aren’t healthy enough for sealants to be placed, we could help you attain a healthy smile and then place your sealants. Fortunately, if you care for your teeth well after your sealants are placed, you could enjoy your sealants for ten or more years.

Brandon Allen, please feel free to call Bullard Family Dentistry at 903-710-2309. We’ll be happy to inspect your smile and offer you personalized advice. We’re excited to receive your call soon!
