Dental Sealants Will Put a Smile on Your Face

Are you worried about cavities and think brushing is not enough? Then discover how dental sealants can provide the protection you need.

Details on Dental Sealants – These teeth sealants are extremely thin plastic coatings that get brushed onto the chewing surfaces of teeth. This covers every groove and gap to protect them tooth decay.

Purpose of Protection – While practicing good dental hygiene will help remove the food and germs that often get trapped in teeth and lead to decay, it can be difficult to remove every bit of bacteria. But teeth sealants are able to keep these particles far from teeth by forming a protective seal around teeth that prevents plaque from forming.

Crowd for Care – Children and teens are the top candidates for teeth sealants because decay often develops in the grooves of pre-molars and molars. This is why children should get dental sealants on their permanent teeth as soon as these teeth come in. But sealants are more than child’s play. Babies can benefit by getting a head start on healthy permanent teeth, while adults will appreciate the protection because decay can strike at any age.

Length of Strength – Teeth sealants can last for up to ten years, but daily wear-and-tear can diminish their strength. But sealants can be reapplied once they start to wear to restore complete protection. Ask your dentist to regularly check your dental sealants to see if they need to be reapplied.

Steps for Sealants – Applying dental sealants is an easy and painless process that takes a matter of minutes. Your dentist or hygienist applies the dental sealant by following these simple steps:

  • The tooth is thoroughly cleaned and dried
  • An acid solution is applied to the tooth help the sealant stick to its surface.
  • The tooth is then rinsed and dried.
  • The dental sealant is brushed on the tooth and it hardens almost instantly, yet sometimes a special curing light is used to secure the sealant.

Cost of Care – Once insurance companies started to realize that teeth sealants were a preventative measure that could reduce later treatment expenses, many started to cover the cost. But since coverage often depends on your plan and level of insurance, ask your dental insurance provider and talk to your dentist to see if sealants are right for you.
