Stop Tooth Decay with Dental Sealants

sealant-blog_121414Patients that are prone to the development of tooth decay due to deep crevices and indentations in the flat chewing surfaces of their teeth may likely benefit from the application of dental sealants. This is especially true for the larger, back teeth. Don’t visit Dental Solutions assuming that dental sealants are only helpful for pediatric dental patients. While protective dental sealants are commonly applied to children’s teeth they are just as effective when used on adult teeth.

Dental sealants are comprised of a thin liquid that is used to coat the teeth after a professional cleaning. Your teeth may also need to be “etched” to allow the sealant to adhere to your teeth more easily. Once the liquid dries, through the use of a specialized light in your dentist’s office, it hardens into a protective barrier against lodged food and other particles that can cause the onset of tooth decay. Sealants can protect your teeth from the formation of new decay, but can also be applied to biting surfaces where decay has already started.

For many patients, regular dental visits and persistent brushing at home may simply not be enough to fend off decay. The application of sealants can prevent the growth of decay to an unhealthy level. Typically, dental sealants will last between 5 and 10 years and can be reapplied as needed.

Contact Dental Solutions today to learn more about dental sealants and how to protect your smile from decay.
