Dental sealants block out plaque and debris from the tooth surfaces that brushing and flossing are not able to reach, greatly reducing the likelihood that you will develop cavities. Sealants are most often administered to children, but they are also an option if you are at a higher risk for developing tooth decay.

A sealant could be an answer to keeping your teeth healthy and cavity-free. We see it as a preventive dental treatment designed to protect patients from decay. A dental sealant is made of a clear or tooth-colored resin which is painted across the chewing surfaces of the teeth. The sealant blocks out the bacteria and food debris that lead to tooth decay, preventing it and protecting against cavities. The coating is smooth, so that you can more easily clean your teeth with brushing.
Dental sealants are recommended for people of all ages, but they are particularly good for children. One of the best times to get a dental sealant is as soon as a child’s permanent teeth come in, which is between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. We also recommend them for adults who have teeth that are prone to tooth decay or who have not had dental work done or suffered from tooth decay in the past. It only takes one short, comfortable visit to the dentist’s office to get a dental sealant.
Sealants are a fantastic method to help combat decay and maintain your wholesome smile. To learn more about the dental sealants and how we can help maintain your smile in good health, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office today.
