Sealants

What are Sealants?

Sealants are protective coverings that can be applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They are clear and virtually invisible to the naked eye. They form a barrier between your teeth and the bacteria in your mouth. When properly applied, a sealant can protect against tooth decay and deep groove staining of the back teeth.

Why are Sealants needed?

Sealants are typically applied on pediatric patients’ teeth, but they are just as beneficial for adults as well. The sealants themselves are useful in preventing decay and the eventual need for fillings, root canals and extractions. They can last for anywhere from one to about three or four years until they naturally wear away. We can reapply the sealants as often as they’re needed or wanted.

Who is a candidate for Sealants?

While pediatric patients may benefit the most from sealants, adult patients can request them at any time. You’re a good candidate for sealants if you’re prone to tooth decay or if you already have a lot of fillings on your back teeth. It is sometimes difficult to fully keep the back teeth clean because of all of the grooves and fissures on the chewing surfaces. If you have a poor diet and hygiene habits, we may recommend sealants to keep your teeth protected.

What happens during the Sealant procedure?

The procedure begins by drying and cleaning the back teeth. We then apply the liquid sealant to only the biting surfaces of these teeth. Once the liquid has been applied, we will cure it into place using a bright light. There is no anesthetic or drilling required, and the procedure takes just minutes in our office. Once the sealants have been cured into place, they will last for about one to three years and provide you with the protection that you need and want. These sealants are not an excuse to forgo regular brushing and flossing as well as trips into the office for checkups.

If you think you might benefit from sealants, call us today and we will be happy to get you in for an appointment.
