You may have heard about dental sealants, but aren’t sure if they’re right for your bite. Well, these sealants can help protect your teeth from the pain and problems of tooth decay. To find out if sealants will help your smile, we’ve answered the most common questions.

What are dental sealants?

Dental sealants protect children and teens from tooth decay. They are barely visible plastic coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent food particles from getting trapped in teeth and causing problems. It is best if a teeth sealant is applied to newly erupted teeth before decay can do any damage.

Is it better to seal teeth at a young age or wait to fill cavities later?

Prevention is your best protection and dental sealants protect teeth from the start to save you time, money, and the pain in the end.

Do dental sealants eliminate the need for fluoride protection?

Fluoride will still be required to prevent tooth decay. Sealants and fluoride work together to help prevent tooth decay in different ways. But total tooth protection demands fluoride, daily brushing and flossing, regular dental care, and smart food choices.

How are dental sealants applied?

The application of a teeth sealant is a short, simple, and painless procedure. The tooth is cleaned, and then a special gel is put onto the chewing surface for a few moments. Once the gel is rinsed away, the tooth is dried and then covered with a coating of the dental sealant. In a matter of minutes, the sealant forms a protective shield and the process is complete.

How long do dental sealants last?

Dental sealants usually last for five to ten years, but should be regularly checked by a dentist. They can be reapplied if they start to diminish.
