During regular routine check, your dentist will see if you need sealants. Sealants are protective films or strips made of plastic applied on the active tooth surface to help prevent against cavities. This is a simple operation, and, therefore, your dentist may decide to do it during your first visit, if the case.
Mouth or sports guards or trays are appliances that protect your teeth from damage during sports. If you’re into such activities and you think you are prone to harm your teeth, see your dentist and ask for the fabrication of such a guard. It protects your teeth, your gums, and your cheeks altogether. As easy to fabricate as they are, guards can make a difference in your life and, at the same time, they’re rather cheap comparing to treating or replacing a tooth.
