If there was a spray you could use on your car and prevent scratches for years, wouldn’t you run over to the store and buy it right away? Something very similar actually exists for your teeth. If you want to protect your smile from cavities, Ruby Dental is proud to offer dental sealants in St. Louis Park, MN.
Dental sealants are a preventative treatment used to protect the biting surface of your tooth from damage caused by the acids and sugars found in some foods. The treatment is quick and painless – it simply involves brushing a plastic composite to your teeth, which hardens, creating a shield of sorts for your enamel.
Your teeth are intricate structures riddled with crevices, peaks, and valleys. Even if you brush three times a day, little bits of food get stuck in the nooks and crannies your toothbrush can’t reach. These bits of debris can eat away at your tooth over time, causing cavities. Sealants help prevent this by acting like a raincoat for your teeth, keeping out the elements that could damage them.
Keep your teeth healthy for years to come with a simple treatment that takes just one visit. Call Ruby Dental today to learn more about dental sealants and schedule a visit!
