As always a great dental experience, preventive care

A sealant is a preventive clear coating painted and cured or “sealed” into the deep groves of a tooth, where bacteria and food get trapped and develop into cavities over time. Sealants aren’t just for children anymore, these non-invasive preventive coverings are highly effective at preventing cavities on the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

There are many reasons to take extra protective measures to prevent cavities by placing a dental sealant. You may be cavity prone if you:

*Have a family history of cavities

*Are taking medications

*Have an acidic diet or acid reflux

*Eat or drink a lot of sugary foods or beverages

*Have trouble keeping up with your brushing and flossing habits

*Have a medical condition like cancer

A dental sealant is

*virtually invisible

*much less costly than a filling

*completely non-invasive

*applied without any discomfort

*highly effective in preventing cavities on the chewing surfaces of teeth

How dental sealants are applied in a few short minutes:

  1. The tooth is cleaned and dried
  2. A solution is applied to help bond the sealant to the tooth
  3. The protective resin material called a sealant is applied
  4. A curing light is used to strengthen and harden the sealant

How long do sealants last?

From two to ten years, depending on how well they are maintained
