Reasons For Dental Sealants
From the moment teeth start growing in they are exposed to many things that can do damage to them overtime. The chewing surfaces of the molar and premolar teeth have grooves in them, known as fissures. These small spaces make teeth more susceptible to decay as plaque can easily accumulate in these areas. While fluoride toothpaste is recommended to help prevent the decay, dental sealants actually takes protection to a new level. In fact, our dentist in OKC makes use of these dental sealants to provide a smooth covering over the fissures.

Dentist OKC: Talking About Sugar & Oral Health
When you were a child, your parents probably told you that too much sugar would rot your teeth, right? Our parents did, too! While this may have helped us avoid a lot of stomach aches, it isn’t necessarily true. While sugar is the main cause of tooth decay, it isn’t necessary to completely cut out sugar from your diet. Taking good care of your teeth and seeing your dentist in OKC regularly can help you avoid cavities and tooth decay even with a diet high in sugar (of course, we’re not saying you should go out and gorge yourself on donuts, candy, and soda. Be reasonable with your diet choices). Today, our dentist in OKC is going to dive right in and talk about sugar, tooth decay, and prevention methods.
