Sealants help to protect your teeth from tooth decay and cavities on your molars. Your molars are the most susceptible to cavities and decay due to their role in eating. They are also the most difficult to clean.
Your molars grow in around ages 5 to 7 and a second set usually appears between the ages of 11 to 14. It's best to apply sealant when your molars first come in so they are protected immediately.
An adhesive is applied to your teeth first and then the sealant is placed over the adhesive as a liquid. It hardens and creates a barrier between your tooth and any loose pieces of food or other unwanted bacteria.
When playing contact sports, the risk of injury increases, including any injuries to your mouth. A mouth guard will help prevent structural damage to your teeth and jaw, as well as cuts to your cheeks, tongue, and lips. They have also been studied to aid in preventing concussions.
Generic mouth guards can be purchased at most sporting goods stores, but your best option is having Dr. Russell design a custom mouthpiece for you. It's designed specifically for your mouth.
Besides custom mouthpiece fittings, Dr. Russell performs all types of dental treatments without sending you to another office for additional treatments. It's professional, convenient, and quality dentistry in one stop.
