We have the fluoride in many brands of our toothpaste, which is doing well in their job in protect the smooth surfaces of the tooth. However, not all parents has provided for them, nor trained their children in brushing their teeth. Unattended dental health of children is allowing them to get more tooth decays than children whose dental requirements are regularly attended to. The good news is that remedies for tooth decays are readily available. Ahwatukee dentists have provided in their clinics dental sealant which will protect tooth surfaces with irregularities. Dr. Ito is one of the dentists in Ahwatukee who apply the sealant to his patients in a simple and painless process taking only a few minutes of their time.

We often do not notice the vulnerability of these areas. The space which exposes them to decay causing bacteria is so tiny, sometimes narrower than a single toothbrush bristle. The thin plastic coatings applied to the teeth can prevent the most common type of cavities these days.

It is of course harder for the kids to do. A dentist in Ahwatukee, would advise clients to make use of sealants while the cavity is still very small. Sealants are a perfect alternative to watching pits and fissures decay. Dr. Ito likes to place the sealant over the beginning of a cavity, where no enamel is essentially removed. That way it won’t grow into full pledged tooth decay.

Sealants are not forever. They can only protect decays for up to 10 years, but it can be replaced when deemed necessary.
