Why Dental Sealants are an Easy and Effective Decay Defense for Kids

dca_blog_dental-sealants

When it comes to protecting children from cavities, dental sealants are one of the most effective options. See how they can help your child.

How effective are dental sealants?

After years of research, family dentistry experts agree that dental sealants are an extremely effective way to protect children from cavities. Research studies have repeatedly demonstrated that tooth sealants can give children 100 percent protection from cavities. Plus, these studies clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of dental sealants against tooth decay, regardless of whether children had the additional cavity protection of fluoridated water or not.

Which type of tooth sealants are most effective?

Did you know that there are three kinds of dental sealants typically offered by an affordable dentist in Orange City? They are distinguished by the way they set, with the three types being ultraviolet light-cured, visible light-cured, and self-cured. Research has demonstrated that self-cured tooth sealants are slightly more effective than ultraviolet light-cured sealants. While the increased effectiveness of self-cured sealants was shown over a two-year span, additional family dentistry research could help to indicate any long-term difference in efficacy.

Is the effectiveness of dental sealants maintained over time?

While dental sealants can last up to 10 years, they can sometimes be cracked or chipped, which can return the risk of cavities. Luckily, tooth sealants can be easily repaired or replaced for very low cost. And by having an affordable dentist in Orange City fix faulty dental sealants as soon as they require repair, their effectiveness can be fully restored to continue their cavity protection.
