Can a Teeth Sealant Save a Healthy Smile?

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

Dental sealants are thin layers of plastic brushed onto the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. Because these teeth have many small grooves and depressions, brushing and flossing isn’t enough to keep them free from residual food particles and plaque; this makes them more vulnerable to tooth decay than other teeth. A teeth sealant creates a shield to effectively seal teeth away from food and plaque, so the tooth enamel is protected, and cavities never get a chance to form.

Who Gets Dental Sealants?

A child or teen who is vulnerable to decay in the grooves and depressions of his or her molars and premolars is a perfect candidate for a teeth sealant. Applying a sealant to permanent teeth as soon as they emerge can help protect them during the cavity-prone ages of six to 14. Baby teeth can also be treated with sealants. Although they are temporary, they are important for holding the appropriate amount of space for permanent teeth. Adults who don’t have decay or fillings in their molars are also candidates.

The Teeth Sealant Procedure

Your dentist or hygienist can apply a teeth sealant. The process is easy, fast, and pain-free.

  • First, the teeth are cleaned thoroughly.
  • Each tooth is dried and shielded from moisture.
  • A mild acid solution is applied to roughen the surfaces of teeth. This helps the sealant bond easily.
  • Teeth are rinsed and then dried.
  • The sealant is brushed onto the enamel, where it bonds and hardens. A curing light may assist in the bonding process.

Dental Sealants Can Last for Up to Ten Years

Teeth sealants can last for a decade. Your dentist will check them for everyday wear and chipping during your dental exams. If your sealant becomes damaged, it can be replaced as needed. Many dental plans cover sealants. Check with your insurance company to be sure.
