Dental sealants are a type of preventive treatment. Sealants are made of clear or tooth-colored resin that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of your teeth. After this resin dries, it forms a smooth, protective coating over the tooth to block out bacteria, food debris and other decay-causing factors. This smooth coating also makes it easier to keep your teeth clean with normal brushing and flossing.
Dental sealants are provided most frequently for children. Our dentist recommends that sealants be applied as the permanent molars come in (between the ages of 6 and 12). Sealants are also available for adults who are prone to tooth decay. Dental sealants can be applied in just a few minutes as part of your regular dental checkups. Once sealants are applied, they provide effective protection for the teeth for several years.
We welcome you to call our office today to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist and find out more about dental sealants.
