Protect yourself from Decay with Dental Sealants

dca-blog-262-Dental-Sealants_1200x630

Studies have shown that Americans have a 95 percent chance of developing tooth decay at some stage in their lives. To avoid the time, trouble, and cost of treatment, discover the protection of dental sealants.

About Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent food and plaque from collecting in the crevices of these teeth and causing tooth decay. First developed more than 50 years ago, sealants only became a widespread family dentistry treatment in the 1970s. Today, sealants are incredibly popular for their effectiveness as preventive measures in the fight against cavities. The best dentists in Orange City offer this proven protection.

Ideal Age for Dental Sealants

Did you know that more than 65 percent of cavities are found in the crevices of a child’s teeth due to hidden food and plaque? That’s why children are the ideal candidates for sealants. In addition, experts in family dentistry say that dental sealants are most effective when applied to a tooth as soon it appears and before decay has had a chance to form. For that reason, sealants are perfect for a child’s permanent first molars that come in around age six, as well as their second molars that emerge at about age 12. But adults can also benefit from dental sealants because even placing them on teeth with minimal existing decay has been shown to prevent further damage.

Applying Dental Sealants

The process of applying sealants is quick and painless. A liquid solution is placed over the chewing surfaces of the teeth and allowed to dry for 15 seconds. Next, that solution is rinsed away and the tooth is dried again. Then the sealant material is placed on that area and cured with a special light. The sealant is now hardened and will probably last for many years. However, dental sealants can sometimes chip or fall off over time. If this happens, they should be replaced promptly to maintain dental protection. That’s why dentists always evaluate the condition of dental sealants during regular dental check-ups to be sure they are still effective. According to the best dentists in Orange City, insurance may cover the procedure, but the decay protection of sealants can save the cost, worry, and pain of later dental care treatment.
