PREVENTATIVE PROTECTION

Sealants

Sealants are an easy way to protect teeth from decay.

What is a Dental Sealant?

A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars and premolars. They work as a physical barrier to protect teeth from decay by sealing any deep grooves and creating a smoother surface that is easier to keep clean.

Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years, but they need to be checked for wear and chipping at routine dental visits.

Reasons for Sealants:

  • Sealants have been found to successfully reduce cavities in back teeth by nearly 80% for at least two years.
  • They can continue to prevent about 50% of potential cavities for up to four years.
  • In some cases, sealants have protected teeth against cavities to some degree 10 years after application.

How Dental Sealants Are Applied

  • The surface of the tooth is cleaned and dried.
  • A solution is applied to roughen the tooth’s surface so the sealant will bond with it.
  • The liquid sealant is brushed onto the roughened surface.
  • Depending on the sealant used, a curing light may be used to harden it.
