A simple treatment that takes just a few minutes and afterwards patients are asked not to rinse, eat, smoke, or drink for at least 30 minutes in order to allow the teeth to absorb the fluoride.

Dental sealants are plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on your tooth’s surface.

When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque, which make the tooth less likely to decay.

With sealants, brushing your teeth is more effective against tooth decay[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][ultimate_spacer height=”20″ height_on_tabs=”20″ height_on_tabs_portrait=”20″ height_on_mob_landscape=”10″ height_on_mob=”10″][vc_single_image img_size=”large” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image” image=”2098|http://www.cregardental.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/mouth-guards.jpg”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Implant Restorations” tab_id=”implants”][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Implant Restorations” main_heading_margin=”margin-bottom:20px;” sub_heading_margin=”margin-bottom:20px;”][/ultimate_heading][ultimate_spacer height=”50″ height_on_tabs=”50″ height_on_tabs_portrait=”50″ height_on_mob_landscape=”20″ height_on_mob=”20″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][ultimate_spacer height=”30″ height_on_tabs=”30″ height_on_tabs_portrait=”30″ height_on_mob_landscape=”15″ height_on_mob=”15″][vc_column_text]Sometimes when things break they can’t be put off.
