A sealant is a preventative measure designed to protect your teeth from decay. A dental sealant is a tooth-colored or clear resin material applied to the chewing surface of the tooth. By preventing the bacteria and other debris which typically causes tooth decay from staying on the tooth the sealant prevents cavities before they start. The dental sealant forms a smooth surface on top of the natural tooth grooves, which also makes it easier to effectively clean the teeth during daily brushing.
The most common patients receiving dental sealants are children, typically for the permanent molars once they have grown in which usually happens between 6 and 12 years of age. For adult patients prone to decay or for teeth that have not been restored or have suffered past decay we may also recommend sealants. We can apply dental sealants in a simple, single visit to our practice. Sealants can be one of the best tools for preventing decay and keeping your smile healthy.
