DENTAL SEALANTS

Dental Sealants or Tooth sealants are plastic coatings that protect the chewing surfaces of your teeth from microscopic organisms and plaque that cause tooth decay. We mainly apply this to the grooves of your back teeth – premolars and molars – wherein decay happens regularly. You will find that most of the tooth decay that happen in children and also teens takes place in these tooth surfaces therefore an application of this coating protects chewing surfaces from germs and also sustenance things sticking to the grooves of these teeth. The best way to protect the permanent teeth of your child is to apply a dental sealant and  adults can also benefit with this.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.

Permanent molars are the most likely to benefit from sealants. The first molars usually come into the mouth when a child is about 6 years old. Second molars appear at about age 12. It is best if the sealant is applied soon after the teeth have erupted, before they have a chance to decay.

Applying sealants does not require drilling or removing tooth structure. The process is short and easy. After the tooth is cleaned, a special gel is placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds. The tooth is then washed off and dried. Then, the sealant is painted on the tooth. The dentist or dental hygienist also may shine a light on the tooth to help harden the sealant. It takes about a minute for the sealant to form a protective shield.

As with anything new that is placed in the mouth, a child may feel the sealant with the tongue. Sealants, however, are very thin and only fill the pits and grooves of molar teeth.

A sealant can last for as long as 5 to 10 years. Sealants should be checked at your regular dental appointment and can be reapplied if they are no longer in place.

No. Fluorides, such as those used in toothpaste, mouth rinse, and community water supplies also help to prevent decay, but in a different way. Sealants keep germs and food particles out of the grooves by covering them with a safe plastic coating. Sealants and fluorides work together to prevent tooth decay.

I have to admit that I had lost my faith in dental offices. I have been in so many and always came out disappointed until I found Family Cosmetic Dentistry in Weston. Every single person in that office goes beyond any expectations. They are very professional and offer a 5 stars service. In other words, I am more than grateful because thanks to them I can smile again.
