Get Proven, Powerful Protection from Cavities with Dental Sealants

Did you know that you and your family have a 95 percent chance of getting cavities in the crevices of your teeth? Rather than face the price and pain of treatment, you can prevent this problem with dental sealants.

The Details on Dental Sealants

To prevent food and plaque from collecting in the crevices of teeth and causing cavities, dental sealants are plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars. Sealants were actually developed more than 50 years ago, but only became common in family dentistry practices in the 1970s. Today, sealants are incredibly popular for their effectiveness as preventative measures in the fight against tooth decay. The best dentists in Ocoee provide this proven protection.

The Right Time for Treatment

Since studies show that more than 65 percent of cavities occur in the grooves of a child’s newly erupted teeth due to trapped food and plaque, children are the ideal candidates for sealants. In addition, experts in family dentistry say that dental sealants are most effective when applied to a tooth as soon it appears and before decay has had a chance to form. That’s why sealants are best for a child’s permanent first molars that come in around age six, as well as their second molars that emerge at about age 12. But adults can also benefit from dental sealants because even placing them on teeth that are just beginning to show signs decay has been shown to prevent further damage.

The Process for Protection

The application of sealants is fast, painless, and comfortable. A liquid solution is placed over the chewing surfaces of the teeth and allowed to dry for 15 seconds. Next, that solution is rinsed away and the sealant material is placed on that area and then set with a special light. The sealant is now solid and should last for many years. But dental sealants can chip or fall off over time. If this happens, they will need to be replaced to maintain dental protection. That’s why dentists always evaluate the condition of dental sealants during regular dental check-ups to ensure they are still effective. According to the best dentists in Ocoee, insurance may cover the procedure, but the decay protection of sealants can save the cost and concern of later dental care treatment.
