Dentist Jason Mandelaris is dedicated to the prevention of cavities, which is the foundation for a healthy and beautiful smile. Preventative dentistry – brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings with a dental hygienist – are vital for keeping your smile bright and free of cavities. There are some places, however, where enamel damage can occur even with dedicated oral hygiene.
The very back of the mouth, where the premolars and molars are, is the most problematic area to brush and floss. Deep pits in molars and spaces between teeth are the perfect environment for tooth decay to flourish. Food and bacteria that is lodged in pits of molars and spaces between teeth create acid that has direct contact with tooth enamel and immediately goes to work.
While brushing frequently is vital, an additional safeguard against dental caries is the application of dental sealants. Dental sealants are a plastic barrier that Dentist Mandelaris can apply. The sealants are placed over the top of each tooth, to prohibit bacteria and plaque having direct contact with the tooth.
Many West Valley parents obtain sealants for their children and teens, and many adults in the Salt lake city area are having them applied to help fight tooth decay and protect enamel. After sealants are applied, they will be examined at each visit and reapplied as required.
Are they cost effective? Sealants are relatively inexpensive initially and downright cheap when you consider the cost of filling cavities and restorative care that may be required in the future. Sealants may be the best investment you ever make in your child’s smile.
To maintain a healthy smile, follow these vital steps:
Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush that is replaced every few months
Brush with ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste after each meal
Eat a diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and low fat protein sources.
Limit or avoid sugary foods and drinks, especially soda and hard or chewy candy
Visit Dentist Mandelaris at least once a year and have your teeth cleaned and examined
Consider having sealants to help protect the enamel in the hard-to-clean places
