HOUSTON, TEXAS – Precise Dental of Houston, a comprehensive cosmetic dental office, has a preventive treatment that can keep adults free of future dental decay.
Dental sealants, available for both children and adults, are placed on the biting surface of the teeth to prevent harmful bacteria and acids from eating away enamel and creating cavities.
“Many of our patients commonly think that dental sealants are only for children, but the truth is that sealants can help keep anyone cavity-free,” said Dr. Lynette Crouse, who operates Precise Dental of Houston. “Just like children, adults can suffer the effects of tooth decay and need to protect their teeth with quality preventive treatments like dental sealants.”
Dr. Crouse said dental sealants are ideal for anyone who has teeth with grooves or fissures – spaces where bacteria easily gets trapped. Dental sealants are durable and can last for several years, depending on the wear and tear.
Precise Dental of Houston places dental sealants in one visit. First, the tooth is cleaned and dried, and then the sealant is applied to the surface and hardened with a special light. The process is not invasive and requires no anesthesia. Dr. Crouse said that many insurance companies cover dental sealants, but added that the procedure is much less expensive than having a filling.
“It is surprising that in our health-conscious state of mind that we are unaware of simple ways to protect ourselves from tooth decay,” Dr. Crouse said. “Our patients love our forward-thinking office and the chance to take advantage of preventive procedures instead of waiting for the teeth to fall apart. I have had several of my adult patients say, ‘I wish my previous dentists would have informed me of this simple procedure to protect me from future dental problems.’”
Precise Dental of Houston focuses on modern technology and continuing education to provide comprehensive care to every patient. The comfortable office includes a digital X-ray machine, which emits low levels of radiation; intraoral cameras; state-of-the-art cavity-prevention treatment; and laser teeth-whitening treatments.
