Dental sealants are a great way to protect your teeth from cavities and decay. Made from plastic or resin, they’re applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars and act as a barrier between teeth and plaque, bacteria, and food particles, which helps protect teeth from damage.
Who is a candidate for dental sealants?
They are typically recommended for children and adolescents, since they’re more likely to develop cavities in their molars. However, adults can also benefit from sealants, especially if they have deep grooves or pits in their teeth that are difficult to clean.
How long do dental sealants last?
Sealants can last for up to ten years, but they may need to be replaced sooner if they become worn or damaged.
To care for your dental sealants, brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and floss regularly. Sealants can eventually wear down, so it’s important to see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
How are dental sealants applied?
The process is simple and quick. First, your dentist will clean your teeth and remove any plaque or tartar. Next, they’ll roughen up the chewing surfaces of the molars with an acidic solution. This helps the sealant adhere to the tooth. Once the solution has dried, the sealant will be applied to your teeth and hardened with a special light.
