What Are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars. These surfaces often have deep grooves and pits where bacteria and food particles can accumulate, making them more susceptible to decay. Sealants act as a barrier to help prevent bacteria and acids from reaching the tooth enamel and causing cavities.

4 Benefits of Dental Sealants

 

1.

Prevent Tooth Decay

Dental sealants create a protective barrier on the tooth’s surface, preventing bacteria and food particles from causing decay.

2.

Long-Lasting Protection

Once applied, dental sealants can provide long-lasting protection against cavities for several years with proper care and maintenance.

3.

Painless Procedure

Applying dental sealants is a quick and non-invasive procedure that can be done in a single visit.

 

4.

Cost Effective

Sealants are a cost-effective way to prevent dental decay compared to treating cavities with fillings or other restorative treatments.

 
 
 
Dental sealants can reduce the risk of tooth decay in permanent molars by up to 80% in the first two years after application.
 
 
 
 

What to Expect

 

When you come in for a dental sealant procedure, our skilled dental team will first thoroughly clean and dry the teeth to be sealed. Next, we’ll apply a special gel that helps the sealant adhere better. After rinsing and drying the teeth again, we’ll carefully paint the liquid sealant onto the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Using a special curing light, we’ll harden the sealant, creating a strong, protective barrier. Finally, we’ll check the sealants to ensure they’re properly bonded and provide instructions for maintaining them.
