No Kidding, Dental Sealants can also Help Adults

Once only used on children, dental sealants are changing the way that adults deal with cavities. Discover how family dentistry experts are using these dental defenders to keep adult smiles cavity-free.

Providing Protection at Every Age

Dental sealants are plastic coverings placed on the chewing surfaces of molars to protect against cavities. Sealants are placed on these back teeth because they are exposed the most to food and bacteria, but their enamel is thinner and it’s harder for toothbrushes to clean them completely. Consequently, 90 percent of tooth decay develops within their deep grooves. That’s why family dentistry experts say that the best way to prevent this decay is by covering these areas with dental sealants. Besides saving you from cavities, this also saves you money because the protection of sealants costs less than fillings and root canals, even with an affordable dentist. Originally used only on children, dental sealants have become a popular form of decay defense for adults of every age.

4-Step Sealant Application Process

Surprisingly fast and painless, the dental sealant process is exactly the same for adults as for children at all family dentistry practices. Once you arrive for your appointment, expect the following process:

  1. The teeth getting the sealant are well cleaned.
  2. A special solution is placed on the molars for around 15 seconds to prepare them to adhere to the sealant, and then rinsed away.
  3. The sealant substance is applied to the grooves of the molars and set with a powerful curing light.
  4. The sealant hardens very quickly and you can resume your normal activities.

Checking Your Sealants

Sealants can last for many years and are frequently recommended for adults who are prone to cavities. Yet extended time and wear can cause your sealants to chip, crack, or come off. This will leave your molars at risk for decay. That’s why your sealants should be examined at every dental check-up and cleaning appointment with your affordable dentist. If they have broken or fallen out, they need to be replaced immediately to ensure that your teeth are protected. According to family dentistry experts, they can be replaced with little time or cost to keep providing big benefits.
