What are Dental Sealants?

Dental sealants effectively “seal” deep grooves and protect the depressions of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing can’t reach.

The dental sealants procedure is simple and only takes a few minutes to create a barrier to preserve your enamel from plaque and acids. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

FAQs

Where are dental sealants placed?

A dental sealant is a resin coating that has been permanently bonded to the chewing surfaces of molars, premolars, and canines by a dentist.

Why are sealants necessary?

The purpose of a dental sealants procedure is to protect young teeth and their roots from cavities. Sealants cover smaller tooth surfaces with a protective film in order to prevent food particles and acids from damaging your teeth.

Who can have sealants applied?

Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants in the fight against tooth decay. The younger you are the better chances the sealant has to work. Sealants are recommended for ages 6 and 12 when molars first start to appear in the mouth.

What happens during the application of dental sealants?

During the dental sealant procedure, the dentist applies a chemical solution that hardens into the clear sealant material inside the mold sealing away cavities and gaps between teeth. To conclude your dentistry session, they’ll remove the mold from your mouth and give you instructions on how to take care of your sealants.
