Dental sealants, also called fissure sealants, are a preventive dental treatment in which a tooth-colored material is applied to the chewing surfaces of permanent molar teeth. Molars are the likeliest teeth to suffer from dental caries or tooth decay. Due to their position in the back of the mouth, less saliva can reach the molars and protect them from the accumulation of plaque. Dental sealants stop food and bacteria from getting trapped in the crevices of your molars by acting as a protective coating.
Mouth guards for Sports and Sleep
Dentistry Lahaina offers mouth guards for sports and sleep. All athletes, regardless of age or skill level, should consider wearing a mouth guard when playing sports in order to protect their mouths from injury. Dr. Pier also offers mouth guards that treat night time teeth grinding.
Dr. Pier uses intraoral cameras to assist her in the entire patient-education process. Patients can now sit comfortably in a chair and get a clear picture of their tooth condition and make an informed decision before the condition gets worse. Our intraoral cameras let you see a fracture as clearly as Dr. Pier can see it.
