Dental Sealants Tooth decay often occurs on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. These surfaces have pits and grooves that trap plaque, bacteria and bits of food. The pits and grooves are hard to keep clean, because toothbrush bristles cannot reach into the grooves, and cavity forms as a result! How does sealants work? To keep decay from starting in the grooves of your back teeth, your dentist may recommend dental sealants. A dental sealant is a plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surface of a back tooth. The sealant material flows into the pits and grooves of the teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting the tooth by preventing food getting stuck in the grooves. How are sealants applied? Sealants are easy to apply, and it takes only a few min to seal each tooth. Sealants are generally clear or white and cannot be seen when you smile or talk. How long do sealants last? Sealants may last several years before they wear out. Sometimes the sealants become worn away or may come off, and the tooth loses protection. At that time they must be replaced. Who should get sealants? Sealants are most often placed in children and teenagers, when the back teeth come in. But adults can benefit from sealants too, because you never outgrow the risk for developing cavities. As the saying goes, Prevention is always better than Cure! Call us at 2143878400 to schedule an appointment for your kids and get sealants placed. Most of the insurances Cover 100% for Dental Sealants!
