Discover how Dental Sealants can Save a Smile

It’s much easier and less expensive to prevent dental problems than to treat them. And dental sealants provide that protection in a simple, affordable way. See why dental sealants get dentists’ seals of approval.

Dental Sealant Specifics

Sealants are coatings in clear or white thin plastic that are placed onto the chewing surfaces of teeth to protect those teeth from decay. They are bonded directly into the grooves of a tooth to keep debris from gathering in these areas and turning into decay. Dental sealants are extremely popular and have been used by family dentistry experts since the 1960s.

The Ideal Age for Treatment

While dental sealants are most typically used on children, they can help people of any age. Keep in mind, not every person or every tooth requires this protection. Whether dental sealants are right for you can only be determined after an examination by a family dentistry specialist. A preventive measure rather than a corrective course of treatment, sealants are typically placed before a cavity has formed. If dental sealants are recommended, it is best to have them placed as soon as possible to ensure that the teeth are protected. If there are slight signs that a cavity has started to develop (“incipient” decay), dental sealants may still be recommended. The only way to know if sealants are needed is to visit one of the best dentists in Mount Dora to evaluate your case.

Extending Protection

Dental sealants can be expected to remain intact for three to five years, but they often last up to a decade. Many dentists see adults whose sealants have been in place since childhood. But any length of time sealants last is assurance your teeth are protected. If you notice that a sealant has chipped or fallen off, alert your dentist so it can be repaired as soon as possible. Considering the popularity and prevalence of dental sealants today, you can feel confident that any of the dentists in Mount Dora will evaluate your sealants during your regular dental check-ups.
