DENTAL SEALANTS IN PITTSBURGH
Dental sealants are just one of many services offered at our dental office in downtown Pittsburgh. Sealants provide protection for your tooth enamel, keeping plaque and acids from eating it away. The procedure only takes a few minutes per tooth, and is not painful. A tooth colored acrylic coating is painted onto the exposed surfaces of each tooth, completely coating the deep grooves and depressions on the chewing surface.
The sealant protects these hard to reach areas from food particles, plaque, and acids that can cause decay. Dental sealants are designed to hold up against the force of natural chewing, and will only have to be reapplied every few years to maintain protection.
Both children and adults can benefit from sealants applied by Pittsburgh dentist Dr. Pounds, especially if you have a history of cavities and tooth decay. Call us and ask for an appointment to find out if sealants can help preserve your teeth.
