Creating Beautiful Smiles

Dental Sealants

Even after maintaining a good oral hygiene regimen, tooth decay and cavities can still develop. This is because it is difficult to protect all of the nooks and crannies in the back of the mouth from food particles and plaque.

Luckily, there is a solution for patients of all ages: dental sealants. This non-invasive treatment offers lasting cavity and decay protection by painting a layer of resin on the surface of the tooth that coats the grooves and crevices.

Benefits of Dental Sealants

Stop Cavities Before They Form

Stop Cavities Before They Form

Cavities form in the grooves of the teeth—those places that are difficult to clean through brushing and flossing alone. Dental sealants can protect your teeth, especially the molars and premolars, so that these cavities never have the opportunity to develop, preventing additional dental work down the line.

Approved for Children and Adults

Approved for Children and Adults

Due to poor diets and improper oral hygiene, children and teenagers are most susceptible to the development of tooth decay in the crevices between the molars and premolars. Dental sealants can be applied to a child’s dentition as soon as their permanent teeth grow in. This protects them from dental complications during their most vulnerable time. Sealants are also appropriate for adults without decay or fillings in their premolars and molars.

Safe and Lasting Protection

Safe and Lasting Protection

Dental sealants offer safe, effective, and lasting protection from tooth decay and the development of cavities. The procedure is short and painless, and it can prevent the need for more invasive dental procedures in the future. This procedure is free from side effects and risks.

Dental Sealants Procedure

Cleaning and Preparing the Tooth

The surface of the tooth is first cleaned with a toothbrush and toothpaste before they are thoroughly washed and dried. Cotton or other absorbent materials are placed around the teeth that are being treated to protect them and keep them dry during the sealant application process.

Roughing Up the Tooth

An acidic solution is applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth. This solution will roughen the surfaces so that the sealant has something to bond to. The teeth are then rinsed and dried and are now ready for the sealant.

Applying the Sealant

The liquid resin sealant is painted onto the surfaces of the enamel where it will bond and harden to the teeth and become the new surface. Once dry, this sealant will become a hard and see-through coating that acts as a protective shield for your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I still need to brush and floss my teeth?
A. Even though dental sealants protect the surfaces of the teeth from dental decay, daily brushing and flossing are required to clean the spaces in between and around the teeth. The more effort you put into protecting your teeth, the better chance you have of preventing cavities.
How long will the sealants last?
A. Sealants are up to 80 percent effective after they are applied and can protect your teeth for up to 10 years. Your sealants will be monitored and checked during your annual dental check-ups for chipping and other wear and tear. Sealants can be repaired or replaced as necessary.
Why should I consider dental sealants?
A. Tooth restorations are expensive, stressful, and painful, whether it is for cavities or more extensive procedures like root canals, extractions, implants, or treatment for periodontal disease. Dental sealants help avoid future dental costs, hassle, stress, and pain.
Does insurance cover dental sealants?
A. Many insurance companies wholly or partially cover dental sealants for patients under the age of 18. Check with your insurance provider to ask what they offer and if there is any coverage for adult patients.
