Dental Sealants for Preventive Dental Care

A Dental sealant is a thin plastic coating painted on surfaces of teeth to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the deep grooves of the teeth which form a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. The tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque.

With sealants, brushing your teeth becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay. Some sealants even release fluoride to strengthen the teeth. Dental sealants are important for children because their oral hygiene may not be constant yet and they may not understand the importance of keeping their teeth clean.

How Long Do Dental Sealants Last?

Dental Sealants can protect teeth from decay for up to 10 years. They should be checked for chipping or wearing at regular dental check-ups. Our dentists will replace sealants as necessary.

Prevent Tooth Decay with Dental Sealants

Our patients use sealants to prevent the formation of dental decay where over 80%+ of the cavities form on biting surface grooves, helping them avoid more costly dental procedures, like fillings and crowns. Get dental sealants in order to keep you or your child’s teeth healthy and strong!
