At Simply Smile, we proudly offer affordable teeth whitening and dental cleaning in Burnaby. One of the best ways to prevent cavities and other issues related to oral hygiene is to have your teeth checked and cleaned regularly—at least twice a year. As a team that champions prevention, we have an exciting new service as an extra step toward cavity prevention—dental sealants.
As a quick and painless add-on to our teeth cleaning services, dental sealants enhance cavity protection. After an assessment, scaling, planing, and polishing, your hygienist can paint a thin layer of sealant on your chewing surfaces and black molars. This seal creates a protective shield that blocks out germs and food. For our youngest patients, the benefits of using a dental sealant can be incredible. Children aged 6-11 without sealants are almost three times more likely to develop their first molar cavities than those with sealants.
For adults and children, untreated cavities can lead to pain and infection. This can impact speech, activity, and concentration, which affects both professional and academic performance. For patients who don’t spend the necessary time brushing and flossing, dental sealants are a quick and painless way to dramatically improve oral health, especially in the back teeth, where almost 90% of cavities occur.
According to National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, using dental sealants protects against 80% of cavities for two years. It also works preventatively to reduce the need for expensive, invasive treatments like crowns, root canals, and fillings. The cost for a dental filling is $201 vs just $33.85 for sealant.
At Simply Smile, we’re pleased to offer dental cleaning in Burnaby. Dental sealants are available as an add-on for patients looking to enhance their oral health and reduce the likelihood of cavities.
