Seal Up the Real Deal on Dental Sealants

dca-blog_dental-sealants-protected-tooth

What’s the wise way to stop tooth decay from spoiling your smile? Rather than keep filling cavities, prevent decay from ever doing damage by getting dental sealants. Discover why a sealant is the smart way to seal teeth to fight decay.

Get Protection with Dental Sealants 

Two of the biggest breakthroughs in the history of dental health have been fluoride and dental sealants. While fluoride is the first step in guarding teeth from the dangers of decay, a teeth sealant adds to the benefits of fluoride to provide total protection. How does this dental wonder work? The treatment is used to seal teeth with a plastic coating to provide a protective barrier that keeps decay at bay.

The Ideal Time to Get a Teeth Sealant

Kids are prime targets for tooth decay because the chewing surfaces of their teeth tend to have deep grooves where food particles and bacteria can collect and cause cavities. The procedure is ideally performed on newly erupted teeth, both baby teeth to protect young children, and permanent ones to help older kids and teens. But dental sealants can be applied at any age and should be re-applied over the years as they wear away with time. Regular applications are required to ensure long-term protection.

The Procedure to Seal Teeth

Dental sealants are quick and easy to apply and the procedure is painless. The procedure to seal teeth follows these five simple steps:

  • Your dentist in Longwood will clean the teeth and dry them thoroughly.
  • An acid solution will be applied to help the sealant adhere to the surface of the teeth.
  • The sealant will be brushed onto the teeth in a thin layer. The coating will be either white or clear to allow it to blend easily into the tooth’s natural color.
  • The teeth sealant will harden in moments, often through the use of a high-intensity curing light.
  • Dental sealants are permanent for several years, but will need to be checked at regular dental visits to know when it’s time to reapply.

Dental insurance often covers the cost of dental sealants, but this depends on your insurance. Ask your dentist about any out-of-pocket costs.
