Why Dental Sealants are the Cavity Protection Your Family Needs

dca_blog_dental-sealants

If you’re looking to protect yourself and your family from cavities, look no further than dental sealants. Learn how these tooth sealants can keep your family cavity-free.

Dental Sealants Seal Out Dental Decay

Dental sealants are extremely thin resin or plastic coatings, which are brushed onto the molars and premolars to keep cavity-causing decay from becoming trapped in teeth. See, tooth sealants are placed on top of the grooves and crevices of these back teeth, which is where food and bacteria tends to hide and cause cavities. While family dentistry specialists usually recommend tooth sealants to kids and teens between the ages of four and 15, more and more adults at high risk for cavities are also enjoying the protection of dental sealants today.

The Surprisingly Simple Procedure

Dental sealants are one of the most quick and comfortable procedures offered by family dentistry clinics. In fact, an affordable dentist in Munster can complete the whole treatment in minutes. The procedure consists of these simple steps:

  1. The teeth being treated are cleaned and dried.
  2. Your family dentistry specialist applies a special solution to prepare teeth to bond to the tooth sealants.
  3. This solution is washed away after about one minute.
  4. A thin layer of the plastic or resin sealant is brushed onto the teeth.
  5. A special curing light is shined on the teeth for one minute to harden the sealant.
  6. Then teeth are protected from cavities.

Keeping Tooth Sealants Strong and Secure

Dental sealants are so popular because the few minutes the treatment requires result in years of decay protection. In fact, tooth sealants can last up to 10 years or more with proper oral hygiene and regular professional check-ups and cleanings. If dental sealants get chipped or cracked, an affordable dentist in Munster can quickly reapply the sealant to maintain its protection.
