Dental Sealants Get the Seal of Approval from Dentists

To prevent the trouble of tooth decay, a dental sealant may solve your struggle. Dentists recommend these sealants to seal teeth from dangerous decay. Find out why this tooth treatment has become a popular practice.

The Definition of Dental Sealants – A dental sealant is a thin plastic film applied to the teeth’s chewing surfaces to prevent food and bacteria from harming teeth and causing cavities.

The Strength of Sealants – Research has shown that dental sealants are 100% effective in protecting teeth from cavities. But once the sealant starts to wear after several years, protection can be reduced or lost. That’s why it’s important to have sealants checked during regular dental visits. Luckily, you can seal teeth many times to replenish full protection.

The Time to Treat – Kids and teens with newly erupted teeth benefit the most from dental sealants because their new permanent teeth are protected from the beginning. But other people can benefit from deciding to seal teeth, especially those with teeth susceptible to tooth decay.

The Application Procedure – Dental sealants are fast and easy to apply. The dentist or hygienist will clean the teeth and use an acid solution to help the sealant stick before simply brushing the sealant onto the teeth. It will harden in a matter of moments, making it possible to treat numerous teeth in less than an hour. Since dental sealants are simply brushed onto the teeth, the process is pain-free.

Care May Be Covered by Insurance – When dental insurance companies realized that sealants provided proven protection, an increasing number started to cover the procedure. They saw that the treatment could reduce future problems and save the cost of later care.
