Sealants

Prevent cavities from early to late development.

Sealants

While regular brushing and flossing are the best ways to keep away cavities, rough spots in teeth can still give way to cavity growth. One of the best ways to preserve teeth and prevent cavities is to use dental sealants.

Dental sealants are a thin layer of plastic covering the teeth, protecting the enamel from being eaten away by bacteria over time and causing cavities. Sealants have been shown to reduce the contraction rate of cavities by over 80%. This becomes especially important when caring for children’s teeth, as they can be more vulnerable to cavities.

Sealants are applied by first drying and cleaning the teeth in preparation. Then an acidic gel is used to roughen the surface of the tooth to support a strong bond. Finally, the sealant is applied and left to dry and harden. This process only takes several minutes, with no serious aftercare needed.

Benefits of dental sealants

Sealants are used mostly for children but can also treat adult patients. Some benefits of this procedure are as follows:

  • It is an affordable way to fight cavities.

  • It saves your time by effectively protecting your teeth against cavities.

  • It is a precautionary treatment that improves your dental health and gum qualities.

  • They are applied quickly and cause no pain or discomfort.
