Dr. Sarkis Aznavour is a Santa Clarita area dentist who has a facility ready to assist patients with a wide range of dental concerns. Whether patients are seeking cosmetic solutions or restorative treatment, they can enjoy it all under one roof. Dr. Sarkis Aznavour also works with patients to provide preventative care, including the application of sealants to act as an extra layer of protection against cavities.
What are sealants?
Sealants are a special kind of plastic that can be applied to the teeth to protect the natural tooth enamel from the development of cavities. Sealants still require patients to take good care of their smile, but they make the crevices of the molars smoother which can reduce the risk of dental decay. Sealants are applied right in the treatment chair for patients in just minutes, but can have a dramatic impact on the overall health and wellness of the smile as a whole. Sealants are often used for children, but many adults can benefit from their application. Sealants are affordable and often covered by dental insurance as preventative care.
What are the benefits of using sealants?
- Fast to apply
- Easy to care for
Who is a candidate for sealants?
Most patients can use sealants to reduce their risk of developing cavities. However, they are mostly used for children who may not be brushing their teeth as well as adults. Some patients who are highly susceptible to dental decay may want to consider the use of sealants to offer an extra layer of protection against cavities.
