Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. They are a plastic material usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay occurs most often. The sealant is painted onto the tooth enamel, where it will be securely bonded directly to the tooth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. The likelihood of developing pit and fissure decay begins early in life, so children and teenagers are good candidates. However, adults can benefit from sealants as well.
Night guards can help protect your teeth and prevent further loss of tooth enamel if you grind or clench your teeth.
Protective mouth guards should be used by both children and adults who play contact sports such as football, soccer, basketball, boxing, and hockey. However, even those participating in noncontact sports (gymnastics, skateboarding, mountain biking, etc.) that could have risk of injury to the mouth would also benefit from wearing a mouth guard. Mouthguards can help limit the risk of injury to the soft tissues of the mouth, avoid chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage to teeth, or even tooth loss.
