Dental Sealants Will Make You Smile

Kiss cavities goodbye with the protection of dental sealants. They seal teeth from plaque and problems to save you time and money. See what sealants can do for you.

The Details on Dental Sealants

Sealants are barely visible coatings that are applied to the teeth to protect them tooth decay. Dental sealants are painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth and bond to every groove and gap to form a protective covering.

The Purpose of Protection

While practicing good dental hygiene will help remove the food and germs that often get trapped in teeth and lead to decay, it can be difficult to remove every bit of bacteria. But teeth sealants are able to keep these particles far from teeth by forming a protective seal around teeth that prevents plaque from forming.

The Crowd for Care

Children and teens are the top candidates for teeth sealants because decay often develops in the grooves of pre-molars and molars. This is why children should get dental sealants on their permanent teeth as soon as these teeth come in. But sealants are more than child’s play. Babies can benefit by getting a head start on healthy permanent teeth, while adults will appreciate the protection because decay can strike at any age.

The Steps for Sealants

Applying dental sealants is an easy and painless process that takes a matter of minutes. A dentist or hygienist will perform the procedure by following these simple steps:

  • The tooth is thoroughly cleaned and dried
  • An acid solution is applied to the tooth help the sealant stick to its surface.
  • The tooth is then rinsed and dried.
  • The dental sealant is brushed on the tooth and it hardens almost instantly, yet sometimes a special curing light is used to secure the sealant.

The Length of Strength

Teeth sealants can last for up to ten years, but daily wear-and-tear can diminish their strength. But sealants can be reapplied once they start to wear to restore complete protection. Ask your dentist to regularly check your dental sealants to see if they need to be reapplied.

The Cost of Care

Once insurance companies started to realize that teeth sealants were a preventative measure that could reduce later treatment expenses, many started to cover the cost. But since coverage often depends on your plan and level of insurance, ask your dental insurance provider and talk to your dentist to see if sealants are right for you.
