Dental Sealants – A Child’s Effective Protective Defense Against Decay

dca_blog_dental-sealants

Discover how effective dental sealants can be in protecting your child from cavities.

Demonstrating the Defense of Dental Sealants

According to family dentistry experts, dental sealants are highly effective in protecting a child’s teeth from cavities. A research study of more than 15 years showed that these tooth sealants provided children 100 percent protection from decay and were an important component of good oral care. Plus, studies clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of dental sealants against tooth decay, regardless of whether children had the additional cavity protection of fluoridated water or not.

All Types of Tooth Sealants are Effective

There are three types of dental sealants available from practically every affordable dentist in Ocoee. The sealants are classified by the way they are hardened, which can be self-cured, ultraviolet light-cured, and visible light-cured. Research has shown that self-cured tooth sealants are slightly more effective than ultraviolet light-cured sealants. While the increased effectiveness of self-cured sealants has been shown over a two-year span, additional family dentistry research is needed to establish any long-term difference in efficacy.

Proper Care and Repair Maintains Effectiveness

While dental sealants can last up to 10 years, they can sometimes be cracked or chipped, which can restore the risk of cavities. Luckily, tooth sealants can be easily repaired or replaced for a very low cost at your family dentistry clinic. And by having an affordable dentist in Ocoee fix faulty dental sealants as soon as they require repair, their effectiveness can be fully restored to continue their cavity protection.
