Protect Your Smile with Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a flowable coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to help prevent cavities. The chewing surfaces of these (molars and premolars) anatomically have deep grooves and fissures that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush, and food particles and bacteria can easily become trapped in these areas, leading to the development of cavities.

Dental Sealants

The sealant material is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where it flows into the deep grooves and fissures and forms a protective barrier. This barrier helps to prevent bacteria and food particles from accumulating in these areas and reduces the risk of cavities. Sealants also have fluoride-releasing properties to help strengthen the underlying tooth structure.

Dental sealants are usually recommended for children and teenagers, as their teeth are particularly vulnerable to cavities due to their developing oral hygiene habits and consuming sugary foods and drinks. However, adults can also benefit from dental sealants if they have deep grooves and fissures in their teeth that are difficult to clean. It is important to note that sealants cannot completely prevent cavities but help reduce the risk of cavities from developing. Safeguard your smile with dental sealants today.
