Protect Those Nooks And Crannies! Family Dentistry in Custer

dental sealants Custer

At Destination Dentistry in Custer, we’re committed to the prevention of cavities. We’re big advocates of preventative and family dentistry, which means we want to keep you brushing, flossing, and having regular cleanings with our hygienist. These are vital for keeping your smile bright and free of cavities.

There are some places where enamel damage can occur even with dedicated oral hygiene. The very back of the mouth, where the molars are, is the most difficult area to reach with a brush and dental floss. Deep pits in molars, and spaces between teeth, are the perfect environment for tooth decay. Food and bacteria lodged in these areas create acid that has direct contact with tooth enamel, and immediately goes to work.

While brushing frequently is essential, an additional safeguard against dental caries is the application of dental sealants. Dental sealants are a plastic barrier that we can apply at Destination Dentistry. The sealants are placed over the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth. It’s an extra layer of protection against bacteria and plaque.

Many Custer parents obtain sealants for their children and teens, but they’re good for adults, too.  After they’re are applied, the sealants are examined at each visit and reapplied as needed.

Are they cost effective? Sealants can last for years. They are relatively inexpensive initially, and downright cheap when you consider the cost of filling cavities and other procedures that may be required later on. Sealants may be the best investment you ever make in your child’s smile. But remember, you’ll still need to brush and floss, and still use fluoride.

People all over Custer SD trust Destination Dentistry for their dental care. Our specialties include cosmetic and family dentistry. We use laser dentistry in certain procedures, and keep up to date with the latest in dental technology. Call today for an appointment.

  • …I had no discomfort (with the laser). Yes, an awareness of ’something done’, but no pain what so ever! You did a good job Doc. If anyone wants to ask me, I’ll tell them. It’s time for the old Bard Parker blade to be relegated to the history file. Thank you for your skills.
    —Dr. Art L., M.D.
