How Cavities Cause Problems

Cavities are much more common than we imagine and affect hundreds of patients. Once bacteria attack your dental enamel, it can lead to a number of unpleasant outcomes:

  • Children or adults may suffer from intermittent (or constant) tooth pain that may prevent them from getting a good night’s sleep; your child may feel restless and irritable
  • An increase in sensitivity (due to the eroded enamel) can lead to pain or discomfort while eating hot, cold, or sweet foods.
  • Sour and bad breath (known as halitosis) which may embarrass you during social interactions

Cavities may also lead to eventual discolorations, including the appearance of black, grey, or brown spots on teeth. Severe infections may require the intervention of an endodontist for root canal treatment or extraction. It’s very important to get cavities treated before they spread to the gumline, nerves, and dental roots.

Who Can Get Dental Sealants?

Contrary to popular belief, both adults, as well as children, can benefit from dental sealants. Dental sealants offer added protection against the risks of cavities (and spread of infection) by forming a protective coating on enamel.

While regular brushing and flossing is an excellent way to keep cavities at bay, unfortunately, your toothbrush cannot reach all the nooks, crannies, and grooves. Microscopic food particles get trapped in these pits and grooves and leave your tooth vulnerable to cavities. Dental sealants ‘seal’ off your tooth and prevent bacteria from getting in.

In the event that there is already an existing cavity, the sealant can prevent the infection from spreading outward. Our team will evaluate your oral cavity to determine if you’re ideal for getting dental sealants. Dental sealants are made from special plastic and can be applied in a single sitting.
