Keep Tooth Decay at Bay with Dental Sealants

dca-blog-262-Dental-Sealants_1200x630

Prevent cavities from sneaking up and bringing down your smile with the protection of dental sealants. See why so many family dentistry specialists keep patients healthy and happy with sealants.

Benefits of Sealants

Thin, plastic coatings applied directly onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth are called dental sealants. They help prevent food particles and plaque from becoming trapped in the crevices of these teeth, which can lead to cavities. Family dentistry experts recommend sealants to protect these vulnerable teeth and prevent the development of decay. Whether clear or tinted, dental sealants are largely unnoticeable, but provide the assurance of cavity protection. Another advantage is that sealants usually cost less than fillings. They are offered at most affordable dentistry practices, so you can save both your smile and the cost of later treatment.

Get Sealants in 6 Easy Steps

The application of dental sealants is incredibly simple, fast, and painless. The entire procedure can be completed in a single visit to your affordable dentistry expert. All it takes is these simple steps:

  1. The teeth receiving treatment are completely cleaned and dried.
  2. A special solution is placed on the teeth to prepare them to bond to the sealant.
  3. That solution is rinsed away and the teeth are dried again.
  4. The liquid sealant material is applied over the deep grooves of the teeth.
  5. The sealant is cured, or hardened, using a special light.
  6. The sealant is set and ready to protect those teeth from cavities.

Perfect Ages for Application

Dental sealants are nothing new and were actually created more than 50 years ago. Today, dental sealants are widely used by family dentistry professionals on children, teens, and adults. The greatest benefits are derived from sealants by applying them at the following ages:

  • Kids should get their first permanent molars sealed as soon as those teeth appear, usually between the ages of five and seven.
  • Children should get sealants on their second permanent molars once they erupt, between the ages of 11 and 14.
  • Sometimes baby teeth may benefit from the protection of dental sealants.
  • Depending on their dental care needs, children may also need sealants on teeth other than their molars.
  • Teenagers and adults without fillings or existing decay in their molars can get sealants at any time to protect against future decay.

Dental sealants can last for more than a decade, but they can chip, break, or come off. Therefore, it’s important to have your family dentistry specialist examine your sealants at each of your dental check-ups. If they show signs of wear, they easily and affordably can be replaced to keep on protecting your smile.
